Floyd Mayweather Jr. has his next opponent lined up, apparently, as Chris Mannix of SI is reporting that British fighter Amir Khan will be his next opponent.
Still, I'm told Mayweather-Khan is a done deal. A U.S. fight. Announcement could come as early as next week.

Khan was heavily rumored to have been on the short list of Floyd’s opponents before the fight with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez was announced. Khan is currently on a two fight winning streak, most recently defeating Julio Diaz by decision in England.
Nothing has been officially announced by either camp as of yet, obviously. We’ll have more as the story breaks.
