Amir Khan admits he is seriously contemplating retirement as he adapts to life on lockdown.

Bolton’s former unified light-welterweight has previously maintained that the wants to carry on fighting at the top level.

But the 33-year-old, who has not fought since victory over Billy Dib in Saudi Arabia last July, is pondering the possibility of hanging up the gloves with no imminent return to the ring likely due to the coronavirus pandemic.

He told The Mirror: “Am I going to fight again? I don’t know, I’m in two minds. Should I fight?

"Financially, I’ve done very well for myself. Do I need to do one more fight which could ruin my whole legacy?

"I don’t know the answer.

“I’m up against myself. I’m debating with myself should I carry on or call it a day?

“I’m just going to wait and see how I feel after a full training camp. Even if I feel I cannot do it anymore, I can walk away knowing I have done everything.

“My love for boxing is still there and I love boxing to bits. But until I see how I feel after a long, hard, gruelling camp, then I won’t know for sure.”

Speaking to the Bolton News last month, Khan insisted he had options at home and abroad against some of the biggest names at welterweight.

It would have to be a fight like that to ensure he does extend his 15-year professional career into a 40th fight.

“I want to be at the top level where I’ve always fought. That’s where I belong and that’s how I want people to remember me,” said the Olympic silver medallist.

“Win or lose, I’ve always fought at that top level. I’m only interested in fighting at that level.

“You can make mistakes when you try to carry on for too long and don’t call it a day. I’ll know myself when it’s time to stop.”
