Speaking on Amir Khan, Golden Boy Promotions' CEO, Richard Schaefer stated to Maxboxing on Tuesday afternoon, “He's definitely going to be coming back on April the 20th; that's confirmed. The question is going to be if his fight’s going to be from the U.S. or the U.K. He would like to do it from the U.K. and that is a possibility. I will be discussing with Stephen Espinoza some of the names if the fight happens to be in the U.K. The situation is, his first choice would be Danny Garcia to get the rematch but we all know that Danny's going to be fighting [on February 9th] and that's not going to work from a timing point of view. So that fight couldn't happen for April.”
Then there are other personal matters that will affect Khan’s professional plans, according to Schaefer.
“Amir can't fight later in April because he's going to get married in May and then it's going to be Ramadan, so he's planning on fighting twice this year, April 20th and then a November/December time-frame.”
