Amir Khan says extra bulk and he’d have taken Canelo Alvarez out

Bolton bolt of lightning Amir Khan, who’s won an award from the WBC at its 54th Convention, for his unstinting work in Pakistani communities – particularly in education, is keen to be top of the class again.

Audaciously going up in weight to fight considerably more robust Saul “Canelo’ Alvarez, Amir was leveled by a mighty overhead right. Undaunted, he awaits the winner of the Danny Garcia- Keith Thurman fight. He’s also keen to fight Kell Brook, at the more appropriate and suited 147 welterweight

Undaunted, he awaits the winner of the Danny Garcia- Keith Thurman fight. He’s also keen to fight Kell Brook, at the more appropriate and suited 147 welterweight category.

Regarding the Canelo fight, Amir says: “I was hitting Saul with some good shots. If I was a bit bigger and heavier I would have taken him out.

“It was a great experience for me, but you have to respect weight categories. I tested myself, but it just didn’t work for me.”
