Amir Khan ready to quit boxing as he’s uncertain if he wants to fight again
Amir Khan claims he may ring the final bell on his glittering career.
Khan admits he may not fight again as he ponders his future at home with his family during the coronavirus lockdown.
Khan, 33, has earned enough millions to set himself and his family up for life and has secured his legacy by winning an Olympic silver medal at 17 and two light-welterweight world titles.
“Am I going to fight again?” he told Mirror Sport. “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.”
Khan says he is not interested in fighting nobodies when he has headlined in Las Vegas and Madison Square Garden.
“Exactly,” said the Bolton fighter. “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.
“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.”
Khan is enjoying spending time with his family, but is self isolating from his six-week-old son Muhammad in case he is incubating the coronavirus.
Khan, who also has two daughters Lamaisah and Alayna with his wife Faryal, said: “It’s a worrying time.
“I feel me being close to him could be dangerous, that’s why I’m keeping my distance.
