Khan: I Want Danny Garcia, He Will Do The Job on Thurman

Former unified super lightweight world champion Amir Khan (31-4, 19 KOs) has discussed the option of a rematch with WBC Welterweight king Danny Garcia.

The pair met at the recent WBC convention in Florida, and Khan is adamant that a second bout with the unbeaten American would mean big money for both fighters.

Speaking to ES News in a recent interview, he said -  “We’ve got unfinished business. One day we can have part two! Obviously I want that rematch. He even said it - he knows that’s going to make big money. It’s a big fight so let’s see.”

Garcia, who is unbeaten in 33 contests, earned a heavy stoppage victory over Khan in July 2012 and there has been talk of another meeting ever since.

“Deep down we all respect each other, but it’s a business. Sometimes in business you have to fight each other. But I don’t like him. One thing I don’t like about him is that he beat me,” added the 30-year-old.

Khan has not fought since the knockout defeat to Saul Alvarez in May of last year, where he made the jump up to a catch-weight of 155 to challenge the powerful Mexican.

“At the end of the day, the best have to fight the best. That’s what I did when I went up to Canelo’s weight. A lot of people thought it was a bit silly but the only reason I went up to that weight was because I want to challenge myself.”

First up for Garcia is the huge welterweight unification fight with Keith Thurman, a clash which Khan believes his former foe can handle.

“I wish Danny all the best. He’s going to do the job,” Khan said.

[QUOTE=steeve steel;17339567]Well... he beat Maidana. But i guess you don't consider him a power puncher. For the rest, i stand by what i said: Garcia could not deal with Khan's speed. Period. He got careless and got tagged... Garcia also…

[QUOTE=steeve steel;17339952]Again... not saying i'm a fan ... frankly he annoys me. But... let's give credit where credit is due. The guy does have talent... just lacks ring IQ. We all new he was going to loose against Canelo. The…

[QUOTE=thack;17339714]He always gets careless and gets tagged that's Amir Khan and that's why people understand he's a mediocre fighter with a poor chin. Since his best win over a still raw Maidana (apart from the smash and grab that everyone…

[QUOTE=FlatLine;17338038]Khan still chasing the rematch but Danny and Angel ducked it for a long time so it's unlikely. And Mayweather still on the run from Khan so he might have to move up to light heavyweight for a worthy challenger…
