Khan: Brook won't get me Mayweather fight
Amir Khan still hopes to land a fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr in the future, but believes a bout against fellow Briton Kell Brook will not get him a clash against the American.
A fight between Mayweather and Khan appeared to be on the cards for May 3 in Las Vegas. However, Mayweather opted instead to take on Marcos Maidana, despite Khan winning a fans' poll ahead of Maidana on who should be Mayweather's next opponent.
Khan expressed his frustrations and disappointment with Mayweather, but promoters Golden Boy say a bout between them is still on.
Khan has now switched his attentions to his next fight, and has dismissed the suggestion by Eddie Hearn - Brook's promoter - that his man should be Khan's opponent, with Hearn claiming the phone had been "red hot" with interest in a potential fight between the two.

There had been reports of Khan being offered a huge sum to fight Brook, but he quickly quashed those rumours.
So many articles that ive been offered 5m dollars to fight, i would just like to clarify my team have not been offered anything.. #AllTalk— Amir Khan (@AmirKingKhan) February 28, 2014
And Khan could not resist leaving his mark by mocking Brook.
Kel work your way up to world class level. If you need an opponent the local shop keeper won't mind making a few quid. Can get him licensed— Amir Khan (@AmirKingKhan) February 28, 2014
