Diego Chaves Says He Received Amir Khan Proposal

By Jhonny Gonzalez

WBA interim-welterweight champion Diego Chaves (22-0, 18KOs) is pondering several possibilities for his next fight - including the opportunity to face British fighter Amir Khan (26-3, 18KOs) in the fall. Chaves doesn't the date or the money involved, but he's willing to consider the opportunity. Khan has lost his last two bouts. He was stopped in four rounds by Danny Garcia in July and lost a twelve round split decision to Lamont Peterson in December.

"I have a few days to think about two options - one here in [Argentina] and one [overseas]. There is an interesting proposal to face the Englishman Amir Khan. I do not know where and I am not sure yet how much [money]. I have to think about it and it is necessary to see the numbers. He wants to move up to welterweight and there is a proposal. It is very interesting," Chaves told Ernesto Rodriguez.
