In a recent and exclusive interview with WBN, Khan has said the following on his future in the ring:

“I definitely wanna be in the ring around November, December; I’m still with Al Haymon," Khan exclusively told World Boxing News.

"It’s been a long time since I’ve been in the ring and with all the stuff that’s gone on in my career, there’s been a lot of ups and downs , with the hand operation and the divorce of my wife. I think I’m going to have a tune up fight, get moving on and take it on there.

“We’ll see what happens it’s just a shame that I don’t get on with Eddie Hearn, if there was respect between us then I would have loved to of fought here more often and have done something with Eddie Hearn’s team but the thing is, it doesn’t make sense because they just talk s***.

“Every time we try to make fights, for example the Kell Brook fight it’s just gone to s*** really because these people just want to try and rip you off. I’ve been in the game a long time and they just try and mug you off, it’s very disrespectful.

“The only promoter I’d like to work with is Frank Warren because in my opinion, he’s always been fair with me and he’s always been straight with me.

“I’d like to bring an American to the UK, which gives it a bit of a twist. I miss fighting in the UK and I want to put on a big fight over here where I’m going to put smiles on their faces. The likes of a Danny Garcia rematch, Peterson and Thurman are the ones I want.”
