Tuesday 09th December 2014 09:27 EST

British boxer Amir Khan is treating his debut at the MGM Grand, the world’s most renowned fight venue, as “a dress rehearsal for facing Floyd Mayweather” ahead of a career-defining 12 months.

Khan has left for Los Angeles and its celebrity distractions – “you can’t say no to dinner with Mark Wahlberg” – and with fresh focus faces the former two-weight world champion Devon Alexander for the World Boxing Council silver welterweight title knowing that victory could propel him into blockbuster fights in 2015, with Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao and Kell Brook in the frame.
