Khan: Big Fights Ahead 

Khan: Big Fights Ahead 

Amir Khan has revealed “there are several big fights out there” which his team are currently working on. 

The former unified super lightweight world champion has been side-lined with a hand injury since his knockout loss to Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez last May, but has promised a huge end to the year once he returns to the ring following the end of Ramadan. 

“To give an update, I’ve just arrived back in the UK after spending nearly four months in training camp in San Francisco,” Khan said today via his twitter account. 

“I’ve spoken with Al Haymon and there are several big fights out there which we’re working on, which I’m sure you’ll all love. 

“I want to give fans the biggest and most meaningful fights rather than just any opponent.” 

Khan’s domestic rival Kell Brook will defend his IBF welterweight title against Errol Spence on May 27 at Bramall Lane, live on Sky Sports Box Office. 

The British pair looked close to agreeing a fight this year before talks broke down again. 

The ‘Special One’ will now face his mandatory challenger at the home of Sheffield United Football Club in his first outing since losing to Gennady Golovkin at middleweight. 

The Brook-Spence winner might still be a realistic option for Khan down the line, but a pending announcement might suggest he is looking elsewhere next. 

“I’m feeling good and at just 30 my aim and focus is to win another world title,” he said. 

“In the meantime, I’m going to keep training while I’m back home and look forward to announcing some big news soon.”
