"I might feel so good that I might want to do another one."

Amir Khan has hinted that he has changed his mind on his retirement plans following his bout against Kell Brook.

Khan stated that he is in the middle of his toughest training camp as he prepares for his long-awaited grudge match with Brook.

He had admitted it would be his final fight and he would be “done” with boxing afterwards.

Khan previously said: “I leave it to God to decide which round I knock Kell Brook out.

“I am going to win the fight 100 per cent.

“People ask me what I’m doing after this fight. I’m done, man.

But after pushing himself to the limit with new coach Brian McIntyre, Khan indicated that he may not be done yet.

Khan told SecondsOut: “Let’s see where it goes. Because look, I’m going to see how this training camp makes me as a fighter.

“I mean, I might feel so good that I might want to do another one. I’ve never been pushed this hard in my career in any training camp.

“Training this hard, I know I can do it. And if I felt a little bit old that I had to retire, or felt beaten up, I wouldn’t have done it.

“I’ve been running with guys that are younger than me, who are like in their early 20s, out-sprinting them and beating them.

“And my times are better. A lot of the younger guys when I’m running the hills. I’m sparring well, I’m throwing more punches than fighters younger than me.

“So I don’t know. There’s nothing telling me I should call it a day yet.”

Khan is now training in Colorado under the guidance of Brian McIntyre, the man who cornered Terence Crawford to a win over the Brit in 2018.

Amir Khan is also sparring with his former opponent.

The former world champion admitted retiring on his own accord, instead of being forced to walk away, will always be on his mind when making a choice on his fighting future.

Khan said: “I always said that I never want boxing to retire me, I want to retire at the right time. I just don’t know.

“I’m going to see how this training camp goes because I feel that, if we get a really good win off the Kell Brook fight, then it might open a new chapter in my career.

“Let’s just see. But like I said, I don’t want to be too greedy because you’re always that one punch away from getting hurt.

“I’ve got a family and I’m going to wait and see after the fight what I do.”
