Khan: 'I can beat them all'.

Summary: Amir Khan believes he has the world at his feet as some of the sport's leading fighters queue up for a showdown with the champion.

Amir Khan believes he has the world at his feet as some of the sport's leading fighters queue up for a showdown with the WBA light-welterweight champion.

The 22-year-old Bolton boy defends his belt for the first time against mandatory challenger Dmitriy Salita.

However, if he defeats Ukraine-born New Yorker Salita in the obligatory clash he is looking forward to some high-profile fights and unification opportunities in 2010.

Khan said: "It's crazy how many possible fights there are.

"I was in Vegas and I heard Zab Judah (former two-weight world champion) is coming back down to 140lbs and he was shouting out in a press conference 'I want to fight Amir Khan'.

"It's a good job I wasn't there because we probably would have had a fight in the press room."

Khan added: "I'm just ready to fight whoever. Whoever I get put in the ring with now, if I have an eight-nine week training camp alongside Freddie Roach then I know I can go in with anyone and beat them."
