The last time Amir Khan stepped into the ring was back in 2015 when he fought and put on an impressive showing against Mexican superstar Saul Alvarez. Khan suffered a brutal knockout and has been inactive since but has kept very busy with issues going on in his personal life that shouldn’t have been made public and appearing on a reality TV series.
Last week Khan stated via social media that there was a big announcement coming soon. Since then rumors began to circulate via Boxing Kingdom and Boxing Planet that a bout with former three division world champion Adrien Broner who last fought in July was in the works.
The fight itself is very intriguing as Khan has shown that he can take his speed and accuracy with him up in weight as shown in the Alvarez fight. He has a reputation for being “chinny” but that may not be much of a problem as “The Problem” Broner has not carried his power well above 140 pounds. His speed and accuracy have carried over pretty decent which would make the fight between the two possibly close and entertaining, to say the least.
