British boxer and former world champion Amir Khan announces his comeback plan after what has been a torrid year for him.
The Bolton boxer has not competed since suffering a knockout defeat at the hands of Mexican boxing star Canelo Alvarez back in May 2016.
Since then, Khan has had to cope with injury, family issues, a planned divorce with his wife and various outside the ring obstacles.
Earlier in 2017 it was mooted at one point that Khan would be returning to the ring to face Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao.
This did not materialise however due to a lack of financing available from the proposed event planners, it was reported at the time.
Since then, 2017 has not been kind to the well followed boxer but now once and for all, he is looking to put that behind him and make his comeback.
Speaking on Instagram, he had this message for his fans:
“Can’t wait to get back in the ring, where I belong. I apologise to all my fans for not being active for a year. I want this more than anyone. Time to make my come back, right to the top where I belong. A lots happened in my life n it’s time I put everything behind me. I apologise to everyone for all the wrong doings, time to move on and do what I do best #Boxing#TeamKhan.”
It is understood that Khan is still currently advised by US manager Al Haymon. It will be interesting to see what fight he tries to get him next up, and in what weight division.
Recently WBO middleweight world champion Billy Joe Saunders intimated he would have no problem facing Khan.
