Amir Khan returns to Boxing with Three-Fight Deal

Amir Khan

"I just don't like Eddie Hearn", Khan said back in August 2017. "This decision is not one I've taken lightly, as I'm at a hugely important time in my career, but having spoken to Eddie at length, it was clear he and I were on the same page in terms of what I want to be doing and what I still want to achieve". He said that next few years are going to be final years of his boxing career as he's now 31 and has few fights left.

Former unified light-welterweight world boxing champion Amir Khan has announced he has signed a deal with Matchroom Boxing and confirmed he will return to the ring on April 21.

He added: "I'm determined to win another world championship and I'm confident I've got the right team behind me to help me do so".

"The names he's been mentioning- Manny Pacquiao, Kell Brook, Keith Thurman, Errol Spence, Danny Garcia and on an on-these are all names that appeal to Amir Khan and who wants in 2018", Hearn said during Wednesday's press conference.

The only stumbling block is that the Colombian is on a three-fight losing streak, which Hearn may not consider as ideal for Khan's comeback.

Khan's pregnant wife Faryal has credited the "I'm A Celebrity" reality check for saving their marriage, saying: 'Amir came back from the jungle a different man.

"Amir Khan has been around longer than Kell, fought more big names than Kell and certainly more Americans than Kell Brook". I want to start fighting in the United Kingdom more now.

"That's why I picked Eddie".

The Bolton fighter's contract with American advisor Al Haymon has ended but he will remain with San Francisco-based trainer Virgil Hunter and will travel to California later this month to start getting into shape.

"Great business is great business and this is a great move for everybody", Hearn said.

"I've been out of the ring for too long, and I'm desperate to make up for lost time, starting in April."
We pride ourselves in taking a deeper look into the fighter, and understanding what makes them tick. Eddie will probably be my last promoter now'. We're both excited about this.

'Brook would still be big.

Khan hasn't fought in nearly two years, having been brutally knocked out by Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in May 2016, but he is eager to reignite his career at 147lbs and feels like Hearn is the man to mastermind his comeback. This deal doesn't make it certain that fight will happen but it takes away some of the stumbling blocks. "Eddie's good at that and you have to respect him".

I don't see why not, why it can't take place.
