Amir Khan is thinking globally rather than nationally after beating Devon Alexander in Las Vegas.

There was no middleweight world title on offer for the Bolton man but his slick points win means he can consider himself a strong contender to face unbeaten American Floyd Mayweather in 2015. Khan, pictured celebrating with seconds left against Alexander, has long sought the fight but now, after impressing in Vegas, can offer a genuine case for the match. If he cannot meet Mayweather he is eyeing former stablemate Manny Pacquiao. Either of those would mean there will be no domestic grudge match with Sheffield’s IBF champion Kell Brook next as Khan wants to cash in while his stock is high.
