Khan focused on beating Algieri

The 28-year old races Algieri in New York on Friday and even though he has been rumoured to be Floyd Mayweather's next opponent, the British fighter said he is only interested in winning against Algieri and will worry about what happens afterwards should he win.

In a press release issued by BoxNation, Khan said that he was not looking past Fridays fight.

"My thoughts are on Chris Algieri and him alone," said Khan. 

"I'm not looking past Friday night because in boxing you can never do that. I've learned that through the years," he said. 

"I'm focused on Algieri because I know he's a dangerous opponent and he's someone who has my full respect. 

"I will need to be on my ‘A' game against him because he has a history of upsetting the odds. 

"You can't ignore that history but at the end of the day I believe I will have too much for him," he added.
