Newly-invigorated heavyweight David Haye is backing fallen champion and close friend Amir Khan to pick himself up, dust himself down and return to the sport with a victorious rematch victory over Danny Garcia.

Khan, 25, was blasted out in four rounds against the American at the weekend, suffering his third loss in the process and Haye still believes that there is plenty of fight let in the former light-welterweight title holder.

"Being only 25, I don’t believe there is any reason for him to retire," Haye told talkSPORT

“I watched the fight and he was in full control. I believe he has got the beating of Garcia. Garcia is a very good opponent but he just got caught with a punch. That happens in boxing.

"Lennox Lewis, one of the greatest fighters of all time, got took out with one punch. It happens. Roberto Duran got knocked out by Thomas The Hitman [Hearns]. Did he retire after that? No, he came back and became world champion again.

"Amir can do it. It has happened to him before and he came back and became a much bigger, stronger boxer and I believe he will do that again.

"I’m fully backing him to not only come back from this but to beat Garcia in good fashion next time around."

‘King’ Khan released a statement today vowing to continue at 140lbs until he recaptures the world title, although Garcia’s trainer and father Angel is hoping to take his champion son in a different direction.

No matter how you put it, Amir Khan is done. He's never going to be able to put his foot completely down on the throttle cos of the fear of getting KOed again. Also, EVERY fighter from now will be gunning to check that chin. He'll never be the same, and it's only a matter of time before the next ...

Kahn will call out Malignaggi(rematch)for his WW belt. Wait...

[QUOTE=jg77]Khan is one of my favorite boxers, but he needs to stay away from anyone with decent power. I think he clearly can outbox Garcia, but he really has no chance because he's going to get hit w/ some pretty hefty shots and he can't take them. A rematch would probably be the worse thing ...

And that's why AK never has a bad word to say about Haye
