" I've never wanted someone to win a fight so much before," said Khan, who is involved in a WBO World Lightweight title eliminator against Martin Kristjansen at the Bolton Arena on April 5.
" I badly want Rees to win so I can shut him up once and for all.
" He's been calling me out for a while now, and I'd love to take him on. I'll even come to Cardiff and beat him in front of his own fans.
" He's a good champion and is only one weight class higher than me, but I'll happily step up and take him on. I'll be too quick and punch too hard for him.
" I want to be a world champion before the end of the year, and Rees is a realistic target.
" I'm concentrating on my fight with Martin Kristjansen next month, but Rees has got my juices flowing."
