Ricky Hatton is set to announce his comeback and Amir Khan’s manager Asif Vali has told the Daily Mirror that Amir may move up in weight in order to fight his close friend Hatton.
‘I’ve spoken to Amir about this before and while he and Ricky are good friends, he knows boxing is a business,’ said Vali.
‘A fight between Amir and Ricky would be huge. It would be a massive super-fight. It could sell 100,000 at Wembley and everyone would want to see it.
‘I’m sure they could put their friendship to one side for 12 weeks for this fight.
‘Ricky’s bound to be asked that question at his press conference on Friday, and if the opportunity for them to fight arises, then who knows what will happen?’
