Default Amir Khan: I'll bounce back (Full statement)

*

I would like to thank all my fans and well wishers for the amazing support I've had from you since my defeat on Saturday night. Obviously the fight never went as planned but credit has to go to Danny Garcia who caught me with a good shot in the third round that I couldn't fully recover from.

I guess that's boxing, where one punch can change everything, it's the reason so many fans love the sport. Many fighters down the years have bounced back from defeat to prove their greatness and that's exactly what I intend to do.

I've never shirked any challenge or refused to fight anyone in my division even though it would have been easy for me to do so. Some may say that attitude is the wrong one to have but I've always wanted to please the fans and be involved in exciting fights because many of you pay good money to come and watch me, and it's only right that you get to see the best fighting the best, especially in an age when so many top fighters hand-pick opponents.

I'm going to spend the next few weeks relaxing during Ramadan and recharging my batteries after what was a 16 week training camp for me. I'll then sit down with my team to assess the options in front of me.

Well done to Danny Garcia on his performance, but I promise that I'll bounce back stronger than ever as I look to regain my spot at the top of the 140lb division.

Hope his team can remain honest with him. Tell him the real reasons why he lost, as opposed to feeding his ignorance.

Glen MCcory on his twitter said Khan should retire. What a twat. Before the fight he was telling us how Khan was the best thing since sliced bread.

I actually really can't stand Glen Mccrory as a pundit, he says stupid shit all the time.

Let's not forget the big song and dance he made about Mosley beating Mayweather, what a tit.

Amazing how some people are advising a 25 year old who just lost to an unbeaten world champ to retire. Talk about over reacting.

I see your point, But, Khan was taking power shots to the head like most people take Jabs on saturday night.

25 years old or not a few more fights like that and he'll be talking like Holyfield.

Punch drunk before 30? Nobody wants to see that.

I see exactly where you're coming from but it was only 1 minute of beating that he took from 2:30 in round 3 to 2:30 in round 4. It wasn't as if be got battered for 12 rounds.
