Former welterweight champion Amir Khan does not view his upcoming fight as a "cash out" assignment.
On Monday it was officially announced that Khan and longtime rival Kell Brook would collide in the ring.
Their clash takes place on February 19 at the Manchester Arena in Manchester.
Beyond the upcoming showdown with Brook, Khan is still eager to avenge his 2012 TKO loss to Danny Garcia.
The Philadelphia boxer has been inactive since losing a twelve round decision to WBC, IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence in December 2020.
“There’s still big fights out there for me. I’ve always said I wanted to avenge that loss against Danny Garcia and he’s still around. That’s one fight I’ve always wanted," Khan told The Daily Star.
“I’m not thinking about defeat because it can’t happen, it just can’t happen. At the end of the day, I can’t see him winning this fight. He hasn’t got the skillset and timing, he has taken so much wear and tear in the last few fights I think he has no chance. Has he got much left in him? I don’t think so.”
Khan is planning to travel to Nebraska this week to start training with new coach Brian ‘BoMac’ McIntyre.
They will work in Nebraska for a few weeks, before heading to Colorado Springs. Khan plans to get some work in with WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford, who holds stoppage wins over both Khan and Brook.
“When I’ve trained with the likes of Andre Ward and Manny Pacquiao, it brings the best out of you. Watching them, you visualize how good they are and pick up things. I think I’ll do the same with Crawford," Khan said.
“It will give me an extra couple of years in the sport. It will bring that love back into boxing for me. I will probably spar with him, he likes to spar once a week even when he’s not in camp.”
