Khan: I Need Another Big Fight

Amir Khan feels his legacy is not complete until he has another mega fight, either with Manny Pacquiao or Kell Brook.

The 31-year-old fighter is eyeing retirement in a few years, and two fights into his comeback wants to level up to major competition.

Following a less than 60 second drubbing of Phil Lo Greco and a decision over Samuel Vargas, Khan feels that he can’t let the only big fight of his career be his sixth round knockout loss to Canelo Alvarez.

“If I leave this sport having not fought either Kell Brook or Manny Pacquiao, I will only have had one big fight against Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez. I went up two weight categories and gave too much away, because I thought it would make me a star. I want a big fight to show the world that I belong at the top,” Khan told Sky Sports.

“Then I will finish and be happy to walk away, knowing that I’ve given my fans everything that I have. It will be on my terms. I swear, this is what burns my energy. I want to burn my energy in a positive way. I love that people like me because of my boxing. Why should I leave?”
