Amir Khan plans to reconquer the light-welterweight division after his recent defeat to Danny Garcia.
Khan today released a statement outlining his determination to reclaim his titles after taking a break to take stock of his position.
“I’m going to spend the next few weeks relaxing during Ramadan and recharging my batteries after what was a 16-week training camp for me,” the statement read.
“I’ll then sit down with my team to assess the options in front of me.
“Well done to Danny Garcia on his performance, but I promise I’ll bounce back stronger than ever as I look to regain my spot at the top of the 140lb division.
“Many fighters down the years have bounced back from defeat to prove their greatness and that’s exactly what I intend to do.
“I’ve never shirked any challenge or refused to fight anyone in my division even though it would have been easy for me to do so.
“Some say that attitude is the wrong one to have but I’ve always wanted to please the fans and be involved in exciting fights.
“It’s only right that you get to see the best fighting the best, especially in an age when so many top fighters hand-pick opponents.”
