Amir Khan recently told BoxingScene that he is still in the hunt for major world titles, but the 2004 Olympic silver medalist has also confirmed that his company, Khan Promotions, is seeking to branch out by adding to their roster of boxers.  Khan Promotions has played a part in the Bolton-based boxer’s recent outings yet have not made any major signings, which is about to change according to Asif Vali, Khan’s business manager. 

“Amir is looking at a few fighters and wants to make more signings for Khan promotions, so any Olympic boxers who are hoping to turn professional can come and talk us,” said Vali when speaking to BoxingScene.

Khan has been a constant ringside presence at London’s Excel Arena during the 2012 Games.  The 25-year-old told me that the likes of Anthony Joshua, Anthony Ogogo and Luke Campbell, plus the rest of Team GB, could follow in his footsteps by securing big pro deals after a successful tournament.

“If guys like Joshua make the right moves in this sport after they do well in the Olympics then they an in a great position to affect their lives, and their parents and families lives as well,” said Khan during a recent telephone conversation, he has also Tweeted his intention to sign more fighters to Khan Promotions.

Should the former WBA and IBF light-welterweight world champion ink a few deals, he will follow in the footsteps of Lennox Lewis and Floyd Mayweather, who established promotional companies during their professional careers.  Given the 26-3 (18) fighter’s high profile, he could be a player when the members of the “Class of 2012” announce a desire to sign professional terms.
