Amir Khan Signs Matchroom Deal And Confirms Date For Ring Return

Credit Mark Robinson

At this final stage of my career I need a team who can get me the big fights. I'm going to get the feel of boxing again and go to training camp in a few weeks.

Khan said: "Last year was a bit hard for me but the jungle definitely gave me a place to think about life and where I want to be and I decided boxing is where I belong".

Khan has previously said he wants his next fight to be in the UK.

Khan has put Spence Jr on his three-fight wishlist as he looks to regain a world title under Matchroom Boxing and having boxed in America for the last five years, could get a shot at the Texan known as "The Truth".

Bolton-born Khan, who first made a name for himself when he claimed a silver medal in the lightweight categoiry at the 2004 Olympics in Athens aged just 17, spent last month on reality show I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!.

Founder of MyMMANews.com - After writing for Ultimate MMA magazine and serving as the editor for U.S. Combat Sports, both of which went on hiatus, I made a decision to venture out on my own and enlist a staff of writers and photographers that could help me achieve my goal of telling stories that would otherwise go untold.

Khan has seemingly put that feud to bed, reportedly turning down a deal from ITV to sign with Hearn.

"I would just love to test myself against him".

"He has basically been an American fighter". "This surprises a lot of people because there has been friction in the past and a lot of things have been said, particularly around failed negotiations to make the Kell Brook fight". Eddie will probably be my last promoter now'. Khan and Hearn noted following a press conference Wednesday that Khan's long-discussed domestic showdown with Brook is more realistic than ever, but Khan added that he might resume his career as a welterweight.

Hearn says: 'Behind all the nonsense Amir has always been a nice lad.

"The target is to provide him with the biggest fights possible with a mouth-watering list of names including the likes of Manny Pacquiao, Kell Brook, Keith Thurman and Errol Spence".

Khan will shortly head back to San Francisco to begin preparations for April 21 at Liverpool's Echo Arena with his American trainer Virgil Hunter.
