Amir Khan is promising fight fans some “shocking news” over his comeback plans.
The former world welterweight king hasn’t fought since being sensationally knocked out by heavy-hitting Mexican star Saul Alvarez in 2015.
But the 31-year-old Bolton boxer has put his followers on standby for info about his first UK bout in seven years.
Khan, last seen on the ITV reality show ‘I’m’ A Celebrity… Get me Out of Here!’, told talkSPORT:
“It is time to come back home now so I am looking at fighting in March.
“Then I plan to fight again in the UK around September time and then, at the end of the year, I want a big fight – wherever that is.
Khan, a silver Olympic medallist at the 2004 Athens Games, insisted:
“There are some big, big announcements I will make within the next ten days before I go back to training camp in America.
“This is news everyone is going to be shocked hearing.”
Reflecting on his time in the Aussie outback, and talking about his fitness, Khan added:
“I felt going in the jungle would get me away from a lot of stuff that has happened in my life in the last few years.
“It was like a detox, being with new friends, being away from your home.
“If I was sat at home not doing anything, I would have got depressed, I would have got so bored, I wouldn’t have known what to do with myself.
“Now knowing I don’t have to go into a boxing ring or go into training camps having injections in my hand, I am going to be more confident.
