Has any chance of Amir Khan meeting Floyd Mayweather Junior in a May showdown been well and truly destroyed?

Although Amir has been begging for the chance to share a ring with Mayweather and thought he?d given his chances a massive boost after the one-sided victory over the rated Devon Alexander, a fight between the two seems as far away as ever.

Talking about Khan the current best pound-for-pound rated fighter in the world, Mayweather has been very dismissive of the Bolton fighter, remarking,

?No one knows who Amir Khan is except for people who are involved in boxing.?

?The other night he fought in front of 4,000 so, Amir Khan, his name holds no weight. My focus is Manny Pacquiao. Let?s make it happen.?

Amir?s chances of getting a share of a dream £30 million dream-fight hasn?t been helped by the fact the television figures, in the US, for his bout with Alexander were far from spectacular.

Could the dream be falling apart?
