Former world champion Amir Khan (31-4, 19 KOs) is looking ahead at returning to the ring in 2018.
Khan has been out of the ring since May of 2016, when he moved up to a catch-weight of 155-pounds and was knocked out in the sixth round by then WBC middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The Bolton boxing then underwent surgery for a hand injury that kept him out for the rest of that year.
There was no fighting in 2017 for Khan.
He went through some marital problems for several months before reconciling with his wife. And then took part in the "I'm a Celeb" reality show where the Bolton boxer was forced to survive and go through a series of challenging tasks in a jungle in Australia.
In one of the reality show competitions, Khan was severely frightened after grabbing a snake - which the boxer mistook for a key.
Now that he's focused on his boxing career, Khan has not forgotten about Floyd Mayweather Jr. (50-0, 27 KOs) - and wishes that Mayweather would have been in the Australian jungle.
"I’ve been chasing that guy like how the snake was chasing me. I’d love to have that guy in the Jungle with me, I would not let him go anywhere. You have to fight me now," Khan said.
Mayweather, a former five division champion, returned to the ring back in August after two years of retirement. He stopped UFC superstar Conor McGregor in the tenth round of action, at T-Mobile.
Afterwards, Mayweather once again announced his retirement from the sport.
Khan expects to return in the first quarter of 2018, in the welterweight division. It's yet to be determined as to when or where he will fight. There is no shortage of opponents. Khan is managed by boxing powerbroker Al Haymon, who works with at least a dozen of the top names in the junior welterweight and welterweight divisions
