FORMER boxing rivals Amir Khan and Floyd Mayweather have linked up in Dubai ahead of the American’s exhibition bout this weekend.

And prior to Mayweather’s outing inside the squared circle, the 1996 Olympic bronze medallist bumped into British icon Khan.

Khan long campaigned for a fight against the 50-0 boxer, but a dust-up between the two never materialised.

The pair showed there is no animosity between them as they were all smiles in their get together.

Taking to social media, Khan shared a clip of him and Mayweather having a friendly chat.

Smiling, Mayweather stated: “What’s going on Amir?”

To which Khan asked: “Where are you man?”

Mayweather then responded: “We in Dubai.”

Khan is facing an uncertain future in the sport following his defeat to rival Kell Brook in February.

Brook has since called time on his career, with attention now turning to see whether Khan follows suit.
