WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn (18-1, 12 KOs) has no problem with facing Amir Khan (31-4, 19 KOs) in the future - if the Bolton boxer proves himself in the ring.
The two boxers spoke when Khan attended the weigh-in to Horn's fight from last December, against British contender Gary Concoran.
"I had a chance to speak to him at the weigh-in. He seemed like a pretty decent bloke," Horn exclusively told Sky Sports. "Amir Khan is a massive name in the sport. He's a good fighter. Why not say that I would fight another English fighter. It's definitely a possibility and on my radar all the time."
Khan has been out of the ring since getting knocked out by then middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in May of 2016 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. That bout took place a at catch-weight of 155-pounds.
At one point Khan was in talks to fight Manny Pacquiao last April, but the Filipino superstar decided to face Horn instead. And Horn shocked Pacquiao last July with a twelve round unanimous decision for the WBO world title.
Earlier this year, Khan announced that he signed a shock promotional deal with Eddie Hearn of Matchroom and is now scheduled to return on April 21 against Phil Lo Greco at Echo Arena in Liverpool.
But one week earlier, Horn has a very tough test. The unbeaten Australian Olympian is scheduled to make a mandatory world title defense against Terence Crawford on April 14 at New York's Madison Square Garden.
Beyond the upcoming defense, Horn has no problem getting in the ring with Khan, but feels that he needs to once again prove himself in the ring.
"Amir Khan is a very skilful boxer. He's quick, but he's been out for a while now," said Horn.
"When he last fought he got knocked out against 'Canelo' in his last performance. He's probably going to need a bit of a comeback fight and then he's going to prove himself again. I hope he does well, but I don't know if he's still got it in him or not."
