Hearn says Amir Khan is FINISHED!

Barry Hearn has been offering his words of wisdom to the ears of Amir Khan recently. Hearn has been quoted as saying that the recently defeated Khan has "gone past his sell-by date." Amir Khan stepped up a weight to challenge Saul ‘Canelo' Alvarez for the WBC Middleweight title in Las Vegas. It was soon for all to see that Khan had bitten off more than he could chew, and as a result, was knocked clean out in the sixth round with a devastating blow from Alvarez. Khan has had his issues. He has been knocked out at lightweight, light-welterweight and now at middleweight. Things are not looking good for Khan and already rumours are flying around the circuit that Khan was interested in fighting the IBF Champion Kell Brook. Hearn, who manages Kell Brook, has said in no uncertain terms that any chance of this fight happening between these two fighters is anything but slim to zero. Despite this loss, Khan is still the mandatory challenger for the WBC Welterweight belt and could if he wished to set up a rematch with the holder Danny Garcia. The two have already met before and Garcia stopped Khan inside of the fourth round two years ago in 2015. Hearn has an obvious dislike for Khan, branding him as an easy fight for a quality fighter. Hearn believes that if Danny Garcia was to accept the fight, then he sees the result no different to the last time the two fighters met, although this time it may end sooner rather than later. So what does the future have in store for Amir Khan, where will he turn to next? Things looked so promising for the lad when he won a Silver medal in the lightweight division representing Britain, the youngest ever medalist at the age of seventeen. He went on to become the youngest ever British World Champion, winning the WBA Light-welterweight title aged just twenty-two. But now the twenty-nine year old has some serious thinking to do as he needs to decide who or if he faces anyone else again!
