Khan hints at retirement in 2020

14th December 2019, 18:32 by Bobbie Jackson

Amir Khan has hinted he could call time on his career in 2020 after revealing it may be his "final big year".

The Brit spent almost two years away from the sport between May 2016 and April 2018 to focus on media and TV commitments.

He returned to action with a first-round TKO victory over Phil Lo Greco and earned a further two victories over Samuel Vargas and Billy Dib.

However, he was beaten by American Terence Crawford in April when he travelled to the States to fight for the WBO welterweight title.

Khan has been quiet over the past few months but insists talks are going on in the background as he looks to compete early in the new year.

"Hopefully in March or April, I'll be back out again," said Khan to IFL TV.

"Location and the opponent hasn't been named yet but we're looking at a location, and then hopefully after that at the end of the year. 2020 could be my final big year, so let's see how I feel."
