Amir Khan is fighting for the future of his family when he takes on Luis Collazo this Saturday. A victory puts him in line for a mega million dollar payday against Floyd Mayweather. This crucial bout comes in the month where Khan's wife Faryal will give birth to their first child.

‘Luckily there’s  about three weeks or so to go so it’s not too near fight night. She expects me to be there for the birth and I want that as well.  I’m up for that.  Becoming a dad is one of the biggest things in any man’s life. And it’s more nervous the first time.

‘We’ve looked at all the scans and this a really active baby. Plenty of footwork, fast hand movement.   Wonder where she gets that from!’

‘And as long as I impress here on Saturday I should get my dream fight with Mayweather next year.  Whatever anyone thinks I know I have enough tools in my box to give Floyd serious problems.
‘If I beat him I will be world champion again and I would want to enjoy that. ‘

If not, his trainer Virgil Hunter believes that Amir Khan has the perfect style to defuse Mayweather as he is improving his game.

Hunter says: ‘Amir will raise the bar in this fight with Collazo.’

Since this is  Khan’s first foray up a division to welterweight he will need to do just that against an opponent who, like himself, is a former two-time world champion and who gave Ricky Hatton a close battle at 147 lbs before the Hitman won a decision.
