Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn claims Floyd Mayweather will overlook Amir Khan and Kell Brook for his next fight – because the British pair are not big enough names.

The American put in a professional display at the MGM Grand to dismantle Manny Pacquaio in their super fight on Sunday morning.

Following the bout Khan and Brook have made noises about facing the 38-year-old in the future, but Hearn insists there’s no chance.

“Kell Brook is not a big enough fight for Floyd Mayweather,” he told Extra Time. “He’s not going to fight him.

“Floyd does not want to fight young lions, that includes Brook and Amir Khan.

“He’s not going to face those sort of people at this stage of his career.”

But Hearn has rubbished suggestions Mayweather will hang up his gloves, following the unanimous points decision.

“He mentioned before the fight that this might be his last, but he’ll definitely fight again,” he added. “He never takes any punishment, it’s so easy for him.

“He’s done 12 rounds against an eight weight champion, in Manny Pacquiao, and he’s schooled him as the fight has gone on.

“He’s not the best to watch in opinion but he’s a brilliant technician.”
