Daniel Khan steps up to six rounds on May 4 in London

RINGSIDE 11/04/2019

Loughton super-featherweight Daniel Khan reckons he could be coming to your TV screen soon.

Khan targets a 10th straight win when he steps up to six rounds at the York Hall in Bethnal Green on Saturday, May 4.

And with Mickey Helliet steering his career, the 23 year old is convinced there are big fights ahead.

He said: “Mickey has got a lot of fighters TV exposure recently and I’m hoping to be the next one.

“I’m sure if I got my chance I would entertain. I see a lot of fights on TV and end up thinking: ‘They are boring, I am better than them’ and it is frustrating.

“My uncle keeps telling me: ‘Keep winning and you will get your chance’ and from what Mickey has been saying, it looks like I might get my chance soon.

“I don’t think anyone would think I was boring. You would see someone who can box and fight – and has fast hands. That causes my opponents problems.”

Helliet has kept Khan busy since they teamed up around 18 months ago, but Khan has been kept out of action since last November with an injury.

His last fight was a points win over Reynaldo Cajina – and was a valuable learning fight for Khan.

He was dropped in the second round, putting that down to “a lack of concentration.”

Khan said: “I had sparred him before so was very confident. I had such a good first round that I went out for the second and forgot about my defence. I went out there to blast him out and he caught me.


 

“I got up and won the rest of the round, but it taught me not to be overconfident. I’m glad it happened. I know I won’t make the same mistake again.”

Khan hopes next month’s fight will kickstart a busy spell. “I want to fight and Mickey can get me fights,” he said. “I’ve got this one in May and there should be another one in June and then we will see what’s out there.”
