British superstar Amir Khan (31-4, 19 KOs) is ready for the biggest names in the welterweight division.
Khan has been out of the ring since May of 2016, when he was knocked out in the sixth round of his catch-weight bout with then middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. He moved up to a catch-weight limit of 155-pounds and saw himself get off to a good start, but eventually he got caught and was knocked out cold.
Khan is now finally scheduled to return, on April 21 at Echo Arena in Liverpool, in a showdown with Phil Lo Greco, who is dropping down from 154-pounds.
Khan is looking at the big names in the weight class - including WBA, WBC champion Keith Thurman, domestic rival Kell Brook, and former sparring partner Manny Pacquiao.
And there is also the rematch with Danny Garcia, who stopped Khan in four rounds in 2012 and returns on Saturday night against Brandon Rios in Las Vegas.
"We've got super fights like Kell Brook, you've got Manny Pacquiao," Khan told Sky Sports.
"There's some big names in the welterweight division - the rematch with Danny Garcia. We're also looking at Jeff Horn, and Keith Thurman is probably one of the best fighters in the welterweight division.
"All of these guys are calling me and want the fight as well. There's some big exciting names in this division and I think I definitely want to be among them. My first move is to get past Lo Greco and then go on to bigger fights."
Lo Greco has really been winding Khan up since their contest was finalized. He's taken jabs at Khan's marital issues, and even sent the Bolton boxer a wicked valentine's present.
"He just gets me a little bit angry at times, he makes me train hard and want to beat him, beat him in great style as well," added Khan. "Let's just stay focused and stay very calm for the fight on the 21st."
