Floyd Mayweather has asked his fans on Twitter to vote on whether his next fight should be against Amir Khan or Marcos Maidana.
In December Khan signed a contract that put him in line for a possible super-fight with Mayweather this year, but the Brit is still waiting to find out if he will face the unbeaten world light-middleweight champion.
Although a May showdown in Las Vegas was mooted for the former Olympic silver-medalist fighter, Mayweather, 36, also has the option of taking on Argentina’s Maidana, who lost on points to Khan in 2011.
And the pound-for-pound world No 1 has sought the opinion of fans, writing on his Twitter account: “I’m going to let the fans vote. Tell me who I should fight next. Khan or Maidana?”
Khan, 27, has been holding out for a lucrative clash with Mayweather since suffering a scare in his dramatic points victory over Julio Diaz in Sheffield last April.
The Bolton man has a 28-3 record as a professional, while Mayweather has won all 45 of his bouts, including victory over the previously undefeated Ricky Hatton in 2008.
