Amir Khan wants to be remembered as a world-class fighter

Brook warned that he is seriously considering hanging up the gloves at the end of 2018 and says a long-awaited fight between him and Khan has to happen this year. "Just as important a factor was the opportunity to fight in the United Kingdom for the first time in five years, and to do so with the support of the British fans and Sky Sports behind me". I am not getting any younger.

Khan has put Spence Jr on his three-fight wishlist as he looks to regain a world title under Matchroom Boxing and having boxed in America for the last five years, could get a shot at the Texan known as "The Truth". "I can't wait to get back out in the ring because I know there is a new Amir Khan out there now".

Bolton-born Khan, who first made a name for himself when he claimed a silver medal in the lightweight categoiry at the 2004 Olympics in Athens aged just 17, spent last month on reality show I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!.

"I would just love to test myself against him".

"I am delighted to have him back boxing in the UK".

A fight between the pair has always been touted, however, never came to fruition as the two boxers camps could not agree terms.

Khan has labeled Hearn disrespectful in the past and has been continually enraged by the promoter's conduct during fight negotiations with Kell Brook.

Amir Khan is joined by Eddie Hearn, Adam Smith & Shah Khan to announce his new deal with Matchroom Boxing.

Amir Khan has signed with Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing in a three-fight deal, with his first bout coming on April 21, at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.

"Great business is great business and this is a great move for everybody", Hearn said. "Of course, he's a more known name than Kell Brook".

With Brook now operating at 154 and set for a debut at the higher limit on March 3, any United Kingdom super-fight would potentially be held up by Khan's plans at 147 pounds.

"It doesn't take a genius to recognise that it brings the Brook fight closer".

"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", said Khan at a press conference in London.

"It is a bit odd but that's where it will end".

"I am 31 and will make sure I make no more mistakes; staying happy and making sure no mistakes are made and doing the right thing". British rival Kell Brook is on his mind for later this year.
