Khan set for December return

Since Amir Khan was shockingly knocked out in the ring whilst competing against Breidis Prescott last month, fans of the British boxer have been keen to find out when he will return to fighting action.
It was revealed earlier this week that he is hoping to secure a position on the undercard of the fight between boxing legend, Oscar de la Hoya, and Manny Pacquiao. This fight is due to be held in Las Vegas on the 6th of December.
Amir Khan has had a turbulent couple of months. The young boxer, who is still only 21 years of age, split with his trainer, Jorge Rubio, following his defeat to Breidis Prescott.
He is now being coached by American trainer, Freddie Roach, at his gymnasium in Los Angeles. Since teaming up with Roach, Khan has spoken of the improvements that he has already noticed in his game. Perhaps surprisingly, he believes that Los Angeles does not hold any distractions for him, allowing him to focus solely upon boxing and learning new skills.
The boxer has managed to learn from his defeat in September. Indeed, he now believes that although it was “a big blow” at the time, it may end up being “the best thing that could have happened”.
Khan is now desperate to get back in the ring and prove himself to the boxing world all over again. Although a place on the undercard of the de la Hoya clash is his preference, if this is not possible then the boxer will fight on the same night in London.
