Former world champion Amir Khan, 34-years-old, is not ready to hang up the gloves just yet.
The Bolton star is still looking to have a fight or two before walking away from the sport.
Khan has been away from the ring since July of 2019, when he stopped late replacement Billy Dib. Earlier in the same year, Khan was stopped in six rounds by WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford.
In recent interview, Khan has expressed his interest in facing domestic rival and fellow former champion Kell Brook.
In his last fight, in December, Brook suffered a knockout loss at the hands of Crawford.
The fight between Khan and Brook has been discussed for several years. For one reason or another, the contest never came together.
“People keep saying to me- ‘when are you going to retire?’ because I’ve been there and done it. But it’s so hard to walk away from the sport," Khan stated during an episode of his 'Meet The Khans' reality show.
“Boxing’s what keeps me busy and occupied- when that stops I’ll be lost myself. I don’t wanna stop yet- I’ve got the energy to have one or two more fights so what’s the point in stopping now? It’s not the money I’m chasing because God has been kind and I don’t ever have to work again. I wanna’ leave the sport knowing that I’ve left it at the right time.
“Now it’s about being smart and picking the right fights. Once I hang my gloves up in a couple years’ time- that’s it I’ll never look back.”
