Mayweather vs. Khan: Amir says "Good luck to Maidana against Mayweather"

It seemed Amir Khan surrender his bid to fight pound-for-pound kingpin Floyd Mayweather Jr., after trying to sacrifice everything just to secure the Mayweather sweepstakes. From pulling out a fight in December against Devon Alexander, appealing his fans to support him from a poll Mayweather ran in his website, which ultimately he won, and of course training in the gym without the official opponent.

Khan posted in his twitter saying "good luck" to Maidana and Mayweather and regrets about pulling out the fight with Alexander.
Good luck to Maidana, against mayweather.

No response from Mayweather or his team. Fights not happening. I should of taken the title fight last December against Alexander...

Khan even issue apologies to the "thousands of people [that he let down]" and said Mayweather is running scared.
Can I apologies to the thousands of people who are let down. You me and everyone wanted the Mayweather fight. He's running scared.

However Leonard Ellerbe said on Fight Hype that Mayweather hasn't decide yet. And said that "When Floyd Mayweather makes up his mind on who he's fighting, which he hasn't yet, he will announce it to the world."

Do you think Khan is just too impatient to wait Mayweather's announcement? Do you think his twitter post would help him secure the fight he's long been longing for?
