ON the eve of the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fiasco, Amir Khan sat down with a group of British journalists. Typically revealing, and showing off the scars from a third operation on his right hand, Khan spoke with optimism about the future after a difficult 18 months since losing to Canelo Alvarez in Las Vegas. During that spell of inactivity, he split with members of his family and endured problems with his wife. As ever with Khan, nothing was off the table, and he spoke passionately about the Kell Brook rivalry that just won’t go away, missing out on the Manny Pacquiao showdown, why he has the beating of Errol Spence Jnr, he makes a bold claim about Eddie Hearn and discusses that infamous social media spat with heavyweight king, Anthony Joshua.
Below is the FULL conversation.
Are you back in camp?
No. I went to see Virgil [Hunter] and everyone, but my training starts properly middle of September. I want to get back into it. I tried my hand out: my hand’s good. Everything else is back on.
