Boxing News at Five: Khan has summer fights in the UK, US and Saudi Arabia on the table, Smith says Canelo never really wanted to fight him

THOUGH he admits his career is winding down, Amir Khan maintains he has a number of appealing and lucrative options for his next fight, which he hopes will take place this summer.

The former WBA super-lightweight champion hasn’t been seen in a boxing ring since swatting featherweight Billy Dib aside in Saudi Arabia last July but is now apparently gearing up for a return.

“Hopefully, I’ll announce a date around Ramadan time. I want to fight around summertime,” Khan told IFL TV. “I’ve got deals on the table for America, I’ve got a UK fight, and I’ve got a fight in Saudi Arabia. I’m going to look at all the options and see what the best deal is. Let’s see what deals are out there.
