Amir Khan: I Wouldn't Say No To Ricky Hatton Fight

By Edward Chaykovsky

On Saturday morning, Amir Khan added some clarity to his future by announcing a new head trainer as well as his next opponent. The 25-year-old split with leading coach Freddie Roach earlier this month in the wake of his defeat to Danny Garcia in July.

And he has now turned to American Virgil Hunter to be his new corner man, with the first assignment a December date with the undefeated Carlos Molina. Hunter's main mission will be to help the Bolton fighter regain the IBF and WBA light welterweight titles he has lost over the last 12 months, in defeats to Lamont Petersen and Garcia.

Manchester’s former world  junior welterweight champion Ricky Hatton, 33, makes his comeback in November after more than three years out.

He will take on former WBA world welterweight champion Vyacheslav Senchenko in a ten round welterweight bout at the MEN Arena on November 24.

And Khan would be willing to fight his friend Hatton should they both win their next fights.

When asked about fighting Hatton in 2013, Khan replied: “I wouldn’t say no to it.

should be quite the interesting fight, assuming both manages to avoid being ko'd in their upcoming fights.

If Hatton and Kahn both look good in their next fights it will be made as it'll be massive. The two biggest names in British boxing... same weight class and both from the Manchester area. However Kahn needs to keep…
