 London: Former world champion professional boxer Amir Khan is hoping to bounce back from his defeat to Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez with three fights in 2017.

The Bolton fighter (31-4-KO19) was viciously knocked out by the Mexican in Las Vegas in May with the WBC middleweight title on the line and now seems likely to return to welterweight.

“Want to be back in the ring around January. Big fights next year. Who do you think? I’ll be ready. #147lbs January, May, December. #3Fights #2017,” Amir Khan tweeted on Wednesday.

Khan, who previously held the WBA and IBF world super-lightweight titles, has been involved in a long-running war of words with IBF world welterweight Kell Brook.

In addition to the possibility of finally settling his differences with Brook in the ring, Khan has been mentioned as a potential future opponent for Danny Garcia and the winner of Jessie Vargas vs Manny Pacquiao.
