ABSTRACT
AMIR KHAN has vowed to earn a fight with Floyd Mayweather on his own terms as he prepares to end what will be a 13-month absence from the ring with a place on the pound-for-pound superstar's undercard in Las Vegas on May 3. Khan (below) will make his welterweight debut against American Luis Collazo, who pushed Ricky Hatton all the way in Hatton's own 147lbs bow six years ago before the Manchester man edged a disputed points verdict. Khan has admitted making mistakes in his relentless pursuit of Mayweather, including passing up a shot at the then IBF champion Devon Alexander late last year.
