What he said:
In my opinion, Mayweather is a chicken. He is doing everything to avoid me just as he did everything to avoid fighting Manny Pacquiao. I don’t want to sound cocky or arrogant but I believe the real reason for Mayweather avoiding me is that he knows I have his number. Mayweather knows if he ever fights me his ‘zero’ will go.
Amir Khan is spoiling for a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. The unified WBA and IBF world champion would like to end Mayweather’s streak of 39 unbeaten bouts.
What he really meant:
“I’m merely upholding the long-held tradition of trash-talking my opponent before a match-up.It makes for great copy in the press.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“Run, chicken, run.”
