The father of unbeaten Floyd Mayweather believes his son should end his illustrious career with "an easy fight" against Amir Khan.

After 48 victorious bouts as a professional, Mayweather junior is planning to have one more battle to see out his Showtime contract, before retiring later this year.

And Mayweather senior reckons that fight should be against Britain's Khan, who was at ringside to watch the American unify three of the four major welterweight titles with victory over Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas.
