By Edward Chaykovsky

Former champion Amir Khan (28-3, 19KOs) is planning to make his move to the welterweight division on December 7th in the United States. Khan is going to be ringside at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City when Devon Alexander defends his IBF welterweight title against Lee Purdy. Khan's younger brother, Haroon, is fighting on the undercard.

Im going to have a nice little break now with Ramadan coming up, but once Ive done all that Im looking at December 7 and youre the first to know that!. Itll be a step up to 147-pounds and hopefully itll be for a world title, Khan told The Bolton News.
