Schaefer Has Options For Khan, Depending on The Weight

By Rick Reeno

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer tells that there are many opportunities still remaining for former champion Amir Khan.

On Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Khan (26-3, 18KOs) was stopped in four rounds by Danny Garcia (24-0, 15KOs), who unified the WBC/WBA titles with the victory.

Prior to the fight with Garcia, Khan was already planning to make his welterweight debut in the fall.

There is still a good possibility that Khan will pursue a move to the welterweight division for his next ring appearance.

If Khan decides to remain as 140-pounds, Schaefer feels the biggest possible option would be a rematch with Garcia - a fight that HBO would love to secure.

In the near future, Schaefer plans to sit down with Team Khan and discuss the proper path for the British star's next fight.

"For Amir, the question is going to be if wants to stay at 140, or move up to 147," Schaefer told

"[At 147], there could be Devon Alexander is he wins against Randall Bailey. If [Robert] Guerrero would win [against Selcuck Aydin], a fight with Guerrero. I can even see a rematch with [WBA champion] Paulie Malignaggi, at 147. Paulie has looked very good. Amir coming off this now, going for a title at 147, I could see that. There are definitely opportunities at 147.

"And I think if he wants to stay at 140, I think the only real big fight at 140, let's face it, would be a rematch with Garcia."

Agree with anyone but Paulie though I don't think he should be rewarded with a world title shot @ 147 in his first fight after getting sparked out. That said I think Alexander beats him & Guerrero. I'm positive Guerrero…

Robert Guererro is the most logical choice.
