Khan: With Pacquiao it Could Be This Winter, Brook Next Spring

According to former world champion Amir Khan (32-4, 20 KOs), he is not bothered by the harsh critics who follow him from fight to fight.

Khan is returning to the ring on Saturday night in Birmingham, when he faces Samuel Vargas in a welterweight scrap.

"I do get much more stick than most fighters. I don’t let it bother me. At least they are talking about me, so I must be doing something right. I love both countries. I believe I set an example to youngsters in the UK and I go to Pakistan to do all I can to help improve the lives of struggling young people there," Khan said to Daily Mail.

Khan first returned to the ring back in April, against Phil Lo Greco, who he blew away in 39 seconds.

Khan is hoping that a win against Vargas will lead to a super-fight with Filipino legend Manny Pacquiao and a domestic blockbuster against Kell Brook.

He could see the Pacquiao fight taking place by the end of the year or a showdown with Brook taking place next spring.

Pacquiao and Brook are both very interested in facing Khan.

Pacquiao, who holds the WBA's "regular" title at 147-pounds, is hoping to face Khan in the coming future. And Brook has been chasing after Khan for the last few years.

"They are both massive fights," says Khan. "With Manny it could be this winter in the Far East or Middle East. With Kell, maybe a stadium fight next spring. Since he is on record saying he will come back to 147lb there is no reason that shouldn’t happen. I never duck anyone."

Khan is looking forward to getting a lot of support this coming weekend in Birmingham.

"I have a lot of friends and supporters in Birmingham and they make me feel at home. I’m really looking forward to boxing here," Khan said.
