Amir Khan, who is one year into his professional boxing retirement, has hinted that he may well be open to joining the current trend of exhibition boxing. Khan, is one of British boxing's most accomplished fighters and a former unified super-lightweight world champion, spoke to BT Sports "Chatterbox" podcast hosted by two-weight world champion Carl Frampton.
Amir has since retired following his defeat to Kell Brook in February of 2022, where he suffered a stoppage defeat and announced his retirement on the same night post-fight. Admitted in his pre-fight preparations in the dressing rooms when he fought Kell, he wanted the fight done with.
"I felt no nerves at all. However, i looked at the clock and thought that in two hours, i would be in my bed. I just wanted it all to be done with.
"I was sick of the training camp and the long fight week. I was looking at the clock and thinking all of this will be done in two hours."
Khan discussed the possibility of returning to the ring and hinted of his interest in a possible exhibition bout.
