Khan Claims Major Announcement Coming
Amir Khan has made it known that a huge announcement will be coming from his camp within the next ten days, and he claims the announcement will shock a lot of people.
Khan has been out of the ring since May 2016, when he moved up to a catch-weight of 155-pounds and was knocked out cold in the sixth round by then WBC middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Not long after that contest, Khan underwent surgery to correct a lingering hand injury.
After years of fighting in the United States, Khan claims his next few fights will take place on UK soil – with the first bout take place in the UK.
Khan would not reveal any details regarding the shocking announcement, if it had to do with a new promotional deal or an unexpected opponent.
“I haven’t fought in the UK for seven years. It is time to come back home now so I am looking at fighting in March,” Khan told Talk Sport.
“Then I plan to fight again in the UK around September time and then at the end of the year I want a big fight, wherever that is.
“There are some big, big announcements I will make within the next ten days before I go back to training camp in America. This is news everyone is going to be shocked hearing.”
In the fall of last year, Khan took part in the reality show “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!”
Khan felt that being on the program did wonders for his personal life, as he was dealing with martial issues that were made public in mid 2017.
“I felt going in the jungle would get me away from a lot of stuff that has happened in my life in the last few years,” Khan said.
“It was like a detox, being with new friends, being away from your home. If I was sat at home not doing anything, I would have got depressed, I would have got so bored, I wouldn’t have known what to do with myself.
“Now knowing I don’t have to go into a boxing ring or go into training camps having injections in my hand, I am going to be more confident. The straight right is my best shot so I can’t wait to use it properly. It feels better than ever.
“All my career I have had this pain and now to have none is amazing.”
