Khan Says There is Talk of Josesito, But Nothing Done

Amir Khan (27-3, 19KOs) is gearing up to return to the ring in April before securing a rematch with Danny Garcia later next year.

The Bolton fighter's career was in the balance following defeats to Lamont Peterson and Garcia, but he bounced back with a crucial win over Carlos Molina in Los Angeles last weekend.

Khan now wants one more fight next spring before lining up a possible shot at WBA and WBC light-welterweight champion Garcia, who defends his titles against Zab Judah in February.

"The next fight is going to be around April time," he said. "That will give me a nice little break. Then I want to be back in the ring again and then trying for the rematch with Danny Garcia.

"Next year should be a very good year for me. In April I'm looking at it being a fight in the 140lbs division for a world title, and then at unifying it with the Garcia fight - if he gets through his fight with Zab Judah.

"Boxing is a sport where one punch can change a fight, but hopefully he wins that fight, I get through mine in April and then maybe at the end of the year it will be a good fight with him."

Khan admitted there had been "talk" about a possible meeting with WBC silver welterweight king Josesito Lopez (30-5, 18KOs) in April, but he added that "nothing has been finalized".

Josesito n Khan would be one hell of a fight. Hope it gets made.

[QUOTE=Roy Jones Jnr]I agree with you that this fight could well be a step too soon for Khan with a new trainer. He showed against Molina he still needed at least another non risky fight but Lopez would most certainly not be a non risky fight. It's a very risky fight for Khan especially as mos...

[QUOTE=Rome-By-Ko]Would it really be an upset at this point if Lopez beat Khan??Hell I think Lopez should be the favorite in this fight...[/QUOTE] agree with this
