Amir Khan on his return to the ring

“I want to be back in the ring towards the end of the year definitely, it could be October, November time. I’m back in training again.”

Khan on why a fight with Kell Brook didn’t happen when they were both world champions

“I knew it would be a big fight in the UK, but I was chasing Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao, and I was making more money in America to be honest with you that’s why….Plus with all the negative things he was saying, bad mouthing he was doing I kind of wanted to teach a lesson a little bit as well. Like look you might be champion but you’re still not going to fight me I’m my own champion, obviously you needed a name like me so he needed me more than I needed him.”

Khan on why a fight with Kell Brook is still relevant

“We’re both British, and Kell always runs his mouth and I think a lot of people want to just see me shut his mouth….When there’s drama involved, and there’s a bit of a story behind it, you know it’s only going to sell even bigger.”

Khan on Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3

“I got Fury winning again because I think by knocking him out in the second fight, I think he shows that there are weaknesses that Wilder has. I think he going to try to capitalize on them and he going to try to go straight in there for the knockout again.”

Amir Khan says Terence Crawford would beat Errol Spence Jr.

“What wins him the fight against Spence in my opinion is the boxing skills he has and the patience. He will make you wait, and he counters well, his speed and his power.”
