Mayweather is scared - Amir Khan

Britain's Amir Khan says Floyd Mayweather "is scared" of fighting him after the American opted to face Andre Berto on 12 September.

Khan had hoped for a September bout with Mayweather, 38, after beating Chris Algieri in June.

Khan thought he was close to securing a meeting with the sport's pound-for-pound king after his success over American fighter Algieri and Mayweather's unanimous points victory over Manny Pacquiao in their lucrative meeting in May.
