LAS VEGAS, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- According to posts on his Instagram and Twitter accounts, boxer Floyd Mayweather will be letting his fans vote on who his next opponent should be, Amir Khan or Marcos Maidana.

Mayweather is undefeated after 45 fights. Khan, 27, has a 28-3 record and Maidana, 30, is 35-3. Khan defeated Maidana in 2011.

Mayweather also put to rest the rumors that he bet $10 million on the Broncos to win the Super Bowl. According to Mayweather, the only thing that he would bet that amount of cash on is himself.

“Somebody lied to you all. If I was going to bet, I would have bet on the Seattle Seahawks,” Mayweather wrote. “I'm the best defensive fighter, it's only right to go with the best defensive team.”
