Khan still seeking opponent

European lightweight champion John Murray (30-0, 18 KOs) is the latest name mentioned as a possible challenger against WBA super lightweight champion Amir Khan on April 16th at the MEN Arena in Manchester, England. Murray would be moving up to junior welterweight for the match. A clash with European light welterweight beltholder Paul McCloskey fell through and McCloskey’s promoter Barry Hearn later termed the Khan camp’s offer as “a joke” although he didn’t specify any numbers. Previously negotiations broke down with the handlers of Lamont Peterson. Breidis Prescott, who kayoed Khan in 54 seconds in 2008, has repeatedly been calling out Khan. Even though Prescott’s stock has largely plummeted since he beat Khan with two straight losses in 2009 and two meaningless fights against journeymen in 2010, he still may be the most compelling option.
