Floyd Mayweather has selected Bolton as one of the six venues on the England leg of his world tour, leading to fevered speculation that a match-up with Amir Khan could soon be on the cards.

Mayweather, widely heralded as the best boxer on the planet, will top the bill at a sportsman's dinner held at the Reebok Stadium - the home of Bolton Wanderers - on Monday 23 June.
