Amir Khan insists he has plenty of options as he weighs up his return to the ring.

Bolton’s former unified world champion is not likely to step through the ropes again until late in the summer, his last outing having been a stoppage win over Billy Dib in Saudi Arabia last July.

The 33-year-old was ringside at the Whites Hotel on Saturday night for Kieran Farrell’s show which featured a host of North West talent.

“I’m doing a bit of training, ticking over and keeping busy and things like that,” Khan told The Bolton News.

“Hopefully I’ll announce something for after Ramadan. I want to spend time with my new baby and I’m going to see where it goes from there.

“There’s so many big names out there that I can still fight.

“I can still headline here (UK), Saudi Arabia, America, they are all options.

“I’m the WBC International champion so maybe I could fight for the WBC title or go for another title, I am ranked quite highly in the other rankings.

“I’m in a good position really. I’m in talks with a couple of promoters and I’ve got options.”

One of those options, he insists, remains a battle of Britain with Kell Brook.

Eddie Hearn last week told The Bolton News that Brook was looking elsewhere - former Khan foe Terence Crawford and Liverpudlian Liam Smith both in the mix.

Khan however says the simple issue over a potential meeting, which has been years in the making, is the weight class.

The Bolton man is an established welterweight, 147lbs, while Brook can also operate a division higher at super-welterweight.

“The Kell Brook fight is still there,” said Khan.

“We’re just working it out. He’s up at 154 but I’m 147. We were getting a contract sorted out and talking to Eddie about doing it at 147 and I found out he’d gone up to 154 and that messed everything up.

“I made that mistake (moving up in weight) when I took the Canelo fight. I’m a 147 fighter and I don’t want to go up to any more.

“I make the weight quite easily.”
