Boxer Amir Khan says he won’t fight behind closed doors

Former world champion Amir Khan has said he won’t fight behind closed doors if boxing resumes during the coronavirus outbreak. British officials are looking at July as a possible return date for bouts, without spectators in venue. Amir added that even though there is big money but he won’t be able to do so as he needs fan base.

Twice a light-welterweight world champion and an Olympic silver medallist, Khan won his last bout with Billy Dib in Saudi Arabia to take his professional record to 34 wins from 39 fights. Khan has previously made it clear he wants to end his career with a lucrative bout against ring great Manny Pacquiao or in an all-British contest with Kell Brook — and those fights need a crowd.
