Amir Khan announces return to boxing ring

Khan was unified light-welterwight champion between 2009-2012

The Olympian and former world champion has not fought since the summer of 2016, but is on track to make a comeback this year. I'm going to get the feel of boxing again and go to training camp in a few weeks.

Amir Khan is confident he can overcome some of the best pound-for-pound fighters on the planet and become a welterweight world champion. Amir Khan recently spent time away from the sport, including appearing on I'm A Celebrity. Changed for the better'.

"I want to fight for a world title within three fights". British boxing is in such a good place and I genuinely can't wait to get back in that ring with the incredible home support behind me.

The Khan marriage had hit the hard place between mutual, lurid accusations with Khan alleging that his wife had an affair with world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, with whom he will now be a stablemate in Hearn's Matchroom promotions. The jungle was my detox.

"I really do mean it". But, it seems that any bad blood between them has been put aside for now.

He said: 'The only way I would take that Brook fight is if he left Eddie Hearn.

"The plan is to box in April and then again in August or September in preparation for a super fight in Winter 2018".

The welterweight, who has been out of the ring for the last 18 months also teamed up with Matchroom and Eddie Hearn, putting an end to one of the biggest feuds in British boxing.

'He's very disrespectful and he's never come clear with me.


"Pacquiao, Garcia and Peterson are what we are looking at, but when Eddie and I spoke we talked about Kell Brook being the target", he added. I always said that to him.

As for making up with Hearn, he says: 'I had found out that I couldn't be my own promoter.

"I've been out of the ring for too long, and I'm desperate to make up for lost time, starting in April".

"He has basically been an American fighter". Eddie will probably be my last promoter now'.

Amir Khan said he was fully confident he will win. We're both excited about this.

With Brook already signed on to fight Sergey Rabchenko in March of this year, Hearn is keen for Khan to fight a significant opponent, knowing full well it could be a warm up to the much awaited Brook-Khan fight.

'Brook would still be big.

It will also be five years since Khan last fought in the United Kingdom, and since then Hearn has repeatedly tempted to lure him into a fight with rival Kell Brook, contributing to the tension between them. And April 21 is going to be a lot of fun.
