Khan tweeted out on Tuesday that he “would love to fight” Broner:
This comes after Broner revealed he wouldn’t shy away from the 28-year-old, even if it meant fighting in Khan’s native England.
“I can’t wait,” he said about potentially taking on Khan, per ScottGilfoid of BoxingNews24. “I’d even fight him at Wembley.”
Khan’s last fight came on Dec. 13 as he dispatched Devon Alexander in a unanimous-decision victory. Over the next few months, he firmly hitched his wagon to a potential bout with Floyd Mayweather. Since Mayweather will instead face Manny Pacquiao, Khan has been left in the lurch a bit.
Taking on Broner could be the next logical avenue for Khan if he’s still determined to chase a big-money fight against Mayweather or Pacquiao.
For Broner, meanwhile, beating Khan would silence some of his doubters after he’s flattered to deceive for much of his in-ring career. He hasn’t exactly been tested since losing to Marcos Maidana in 2013.
It wouldn’t mean instant legitimacy, but Broner would take a big step forward in his career with a victory.
