Golden Boy Promotions has entered a a strategic alliance with Khan Promotions to promote WBA super lightweight world champion Amir Khan (22-1, 16 KOs) with the goal of expanding his presence globally, particularly in the United States. “Amir is already a star in the United Kingdom and now, we are going to help him shine in the United States and across the world,” said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. An opponent, date and location for Khan’s next fight will be announced shortly. Ricky Hatton has been mentioned as a possible future Khan opponent. Khan is now training with Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood.
Khan was previously promoted by Frank Warren. “You just hope that people don’t suffer from amnesia, that’s all I can say,” Warren told PA Sport last week. “I have delivered all I said I was going to do. When he turned pro I said I’d look after him and I’d make sure he wins a world title and I’ve done that.”
