Froch on Khan's Loss: I Would Retire If It Was Me

Amir Khan has been advised by Carl Froch to consider retirement after being stopped in the fourth round by Danny Garcia in Las Vegas.

Khan was floored three times as American Garcia exploited the Englishman's naive tactics to keep his WBC light-welterweight title and snatch his opponent's WBA belt.

It was Khan's second straight defeat following his loss to Lamont Peterson and the third in his career, having also tasted defeat at the hands of Breidis Prescott.

Froch, the current IBF super-middleweight champion, revealed today he would hang up his gloves if he was in the Bolton fighter's shoes.

"I would retire if that happened to me," he told Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme.

"Why? Because I am not in this sport to get beaten, knocked out, or outclassed.

Khan should get Manny to train him and Ortiz should get Roach for a trainer. Roach is good with fighters and Manny is good with long tall guys.
