FOLLOWING a sensational comeback victory, Amir Khan has revealed his plans for "the last chapter" of his boxing career — including a dream contest at the Macron stadium and a revenge bout with former nemesis Danny Garcia.

The fighter spoke exclusively to The Bolton News this week at one of his favourite restaurants, New Dhanak Deira in Astley Bridge, where he had organised a meal with his long-term supporters and friends.

In his first interview since dropping Phil Lo Greco within 40 seconds, the 31-year-old was in good spirits after greeting members of the "Khan Army" and tried to recapture the emotions from that night in Liverpool.

"It happened so quickly that I didn't even get into the fight. I had so much energy left in my body," he said.

"I would have liked it to have gone on for longer but to be honest, with all the bad blood between us, it was good to get rid of him and make a statement to the world to tell them I'm no pushover.

"The statement I sent out was the one everyone wanted me to, especially my fans and my followers. They wanted me to make a statement that made a big noise and I think it did."

Amir admitted to feeling nervous in the run-up to the event, being his first fight since he was knocked out in the sixth round by Canelo Alvarez in 2016.

But he soon found his rhythm as he undertook a tough diet and training regime in San Francisco.

Amir said: "Training was hard to get back into at first. For the first couple of weeks I was getting a lot of aches and pains. "Once I got into it I was fine. I always push myself and it is always good to walk out of the gym in pain. I like to leave the feeling like I've done a session.

"I never expect the fight to be easy and I didn't expect it to finish so quick. You always train for 12 rounds. I must have done 150 rounds of sparring."

When asked what he thought made the difference, he said: "I think my speed and power. I think I'm the more skilled fighter and I tried to get that across in the press conferences but he was having none of it."

Amir's focus has temporarily shifted to the work of the Amir Khan Foundation, which is due to complete an orphanage in The Gambia.

But he has huge plans for what lies ahead in what he believes will be the final two years of his boxing career.

Having already called out Kell Brook, Amir is also targeting a rematch with Danny Garcia, who he lost to in 2012, as well as another championship run.

He said: "I'm glad we got it done and got the win because now this is just going to push me further up the rankings and there are some big names out there — the likes of Kell Brook, Errol Spence and a Danny Garcia rematch.

"Now they're looking at me and thinking 'woah, Amir has come back'. A lot of fighters did not expect me to finish off Lo Greco the way that I did because I had been out for that long.

"I want to fight for another world title. I want to be a world champion of the 147lbs division.

"I want to fight at Bolton Wanderers' stadium, that's definitely one of my dreams. I want to try and get a big fight there and maybe something at the Wembley Stadium.

"I think this could be the last chapter of my career so I want to make sure I finish with a big bang. I've been boxing for a long time."

Before his comeback, the Olympic silver medallist had been making headlines outside the ring over the last year partly due to a recent stint in I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

His marriage to Faryal Makhdoom also appeared to be on the rocks but the pair reconciled following a brief split in August.

But he seemed happier than ever with family life and could not help but smile as he talked about the recent birth of his second daughter Alayna.

"It was amazing. It has been crazy," he said.

"My wife had Alayna and now Lamaisah has a sister and a friend, which is great because she gets a bit bored at home and can get a bit sick of me sometimes.

"Everything I do is for my family and it is amazing to have Alayna in the world."

And the father-of-two found time to thank the local "Khan Army" for their support, many of whom have been flying out to watch him fight since he burst on to the scene at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.

He said: "Everything in my career is about giving my fans the best fights they want to see. Bolton has always been behind me. In every fight they've always been very supportive.

"I'll be walking or running down the streets and people wave at me and ask me for pictures. I never say no to a picture and I always make sure I take time to speak to them.

"I am a Boltonian and I think it's important to be loved in your hometown. My heart is in Bolton."
