'We'll get that fight' – Floyd Mayweather called out for exhibition bout by Kell Brook's trainer after Amir Khan win

FLOYD MAYWEATHER was called out by Kell Brook's trainer Dominic Ingle after they finally got one over on Amir Khan.

Khan spent several wasted years of his prime chasing a mega-money fight with Mayweather, to no avail.

Similarly, Brook tried but failed in attempts to get his British rival in the ring and looked to have missed out forever.

But they finally agreed terms which set up a thrilling night in the Manchester Arena, where Brook at last proved himself right.

He dominated Khan to win in six rounds and talk at the post-fight press conference soon turned to what – or who – is next for the ex-IBF champion.

But it was long-time coach Ingle who threw boxing legend Mayweather's name out there.

He told promoter Ben Shalom: "Wherever there's any more fights, whether he needs to do anymore is another matter.

"Because you're always remembered for your last fight. But on this performance, they're both 35, they're not spring chickens.

"There's got to be some good fights out there. I'm thinking maybe get Mayweather out of retirement and we'll get that fight."

Mayweather, 44, hung up the gloves officially in 2017 after his cash-grab win against UFC superstar Conor McGregor, 33.

But the richest fighter of all time has twice returned to the ring, both in exhibition bouts.

The first was in Tokyo on New Year's Eve in 2018, beating Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, 23, in one round.

Then last June he was taken the distance by YouTube star Logan Paul, 26, who weighed TWO STONE more to make up for the farcical skill disparity.

Mayweather in December held a press conference to say he would fight on top of the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah hotel HELIPAD.

Middle East vlogger Money Kicks – real name Rashed Belhasa – was in negotiations to be the opponent but talks have broken down.

So Brook's trainer has offered the Brit as a replacement, even if it is an exhibition opposed to a crack at the American's 50-0 record.

Ingle said: "He seems to want to fight everybody that's not a boxer. But why not? If it can be made, Ben you're the man, apparently.

"You're the new man on the block, so get in touch with Floyd and whether it's an exhibition or a fight, it's probably something we can do."
