Khan: I'll Always Have World Title Fights, Brook Will Be There Too

British star Amir Khan does not expect to have any issues with securing another big fight in the future.

Khan was very upset after suffering a sixth round TKO defeat on Saturday, when he faced WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Khan, who was down in the first round, saw the contest end in a very strange situation after getting tagged with a hard low blow. Khan's trainer, Virgil Hunter, asked the boxer if he was able to continued, and Khan said the low blow had left him in severe pain - prompting Hunter to call the fight.


Crawford accused Khan of quitting, claiming that the Bolton boxer refused to take the full five minutes to recover and instead walked off from the fight.

“I don’t want to end my career like that, I definitely don’t,” Khan told BBC Sport. “I want to spend time with family now and then see. But I’m 32 and I think I have a lot more in me. I love the sport like I always have.

“It’s not my last fight. No, not at all. Definitely man, you’ll see me again.”

Khan, 32-years-old, suffered his fifth loss and it was the fourth by way of a stoppage.

But he's confident in his ability to secure world title opportunities.

“I will always have world title fights,” Khan said. “I will always have opportunities to fight for world titles, so yeah, I think that will always be there.”

And of course the biggest fight is still out there, a showdown with his domestic rival Kell Brook, who was ringside to watch Khan's fight with Crawford.

Although Brook claims the fight is dead, Khan does not believe him.

“The Brook fight is always going to be there and I think it’ll still be there,” said Khan. “I really believe that fight is there.”

[QUOTE=sportbuddha;19683675]I’m not sure it’s fair to say his career was entirely crafted for ease. He could have held onto one belt and refused to travel like others have done. He could have done a Wilder and taken one challenge for…

[QUOTE=angkag;19681263]Khan has one of the most carefully crafted resumes in boxing, he had a credible run at 140 for a period of about 2 years, then in 2012 went to 147 to hitch his skirt up for a Maywrather or…
