Amir Khan, Frank Warren Reunion is Coming Soon?
By Chris LaBate
There is some speculation that a working relationship is possible, in the near future, between Amir Khan and his former promoter Frank Warren. Khan has not worked with Warren since the first round destruction of Dmitriy Salita in December 2009. The two sides parted on decent terms, or at least they were calm when compared to Warren's past breakups with Joe Calzaghe and Ricky Hatton.
This time their relationship could blossom in the form of Khan's bouts being showcased on Warren's new TV channel, BoxNation. To date, Khan has not reached a deal with a UK station for the rights to showcase his next defense, which takes place against Lamont Peterson on December 10 in Washington.
After a bitter break with Sky Sports, Khan's last two outings were carried by UK pay-per-view channel Primetime. Khan is not ruling out a possible deal with BoxNation. He plans to speak with every network in the running, including Warren's new channel.
"We know that Sky are great at what they do. Primetime have also been great and they have been very good at what they've done. We've even got BoxNation now. I was watching their station the other day and they're doing well. So you've got a few players there. Primetime showed the Mayweather fight against Ortiz. It's good to speak to all of them. It's good to know the business a little bit more. I stayed out of it before, but now I'm more involved. We'll see where we go, but we should know in the next week or so," Khan told British scribe Dave Anderson.
