WBC silver junior welterweight champion Amir Khan admits he may extend his career beyond the age of 28 and for the moment has no interest in stepping up to welterweight to face Sheffield rival Kell Brook.

In 2011, Khan was heavily considering the possibility of going to the welterweight division in 2012 - but then he suffered a controversial decision loss to Lamont Peterson in December 2011 and was knocked out by Danny Garcia in four rounds in July. He returned earlier this month to stop Carlos Molina.

With so many options now at 140, Khan plans to stick around for a little while longer.

He said: When Im 28 Ive always said I would retire but we will see how my body is. At the moment I feel young, fresh and hungry.

Its so easy at the moment to make light-welterweight. I was going to move up to welterweight because there was nothing left for me at light-welterweight but now there are a few fights and titles to be won again.

I think naturally Im not big enough to be at welterweight yet but Ill know when the right time is to do that.

[QUOTE=Suavecito80]Since when is "ducking" waiting for a way bigger and better fight? GTFO with that nonsense.[/QUOTE] Hahahahaha. Bradley came out and said it was too risky for $1.3m - how is that waiting for a better fight? He had the chance to unify the division he'd been trading in for years....

[QUOTE=Suavecito80]So afraid that he went and fought pacquiao instead??[/QUOTE]Absolutely. Money makes fighters more brave. It is easier to take a loss against a top 3 PFP than Khan. And Bradley did lose as seen by his lack of ability to secure a fight. Bradley's 15 minutes of fame were up the mi...
