"People ask me what I'm doing after this fight."
Amir Khan has revealed when he will retire from boxing.
He is currently preparing to face longtime rival Kell Brook on February 19, 2022, at a sold-out AO Arena in Manchester.
Khan has now said that the bout against Brook will be his last. But he promised to go out on a high.
The 35-year-old 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.”
Once he retires, Amir Khan will go down as one of Britain’s most celebrated fighters. He was an Olympic silver medallist at 17 and a former unified world champion.
While Brook never got the same recognition, he was a long-reigning IBF welterweight champion.
And while he may have been in Khan’s shadow for parts of his career, he plans to shatter his rival’s legacy in one fight.
Brook said: “He messed about when we got contracts over the line.
“Now we’ve got a date, let’s make this fight happen. I want him to turn up on February 19, the best he can be.
“The fans have been waiting too long. I’ve been waiting too long. I’m more than ready to show the world that I’m the best.
“After this fight, Amir will be a mere memory.”
Brook’s best night came in 2014 when defeated Shawn Porter for the title in California.
However, Brook also suffered brutal defeats to Gennady Golovkin and Errol Spence Jr.
But with his dream fight on the horizon, this is the one he believes will define his career.
Brook continued: “I’m putting myself through hell. People will remember me by this fight.
“It took years for this grudge match to finally get here. The fans have been waiting for this fight for a long time.”
Amir Khan and Kell Brook have gone back-and-forth for many years and this was on show during their first press conference.
It got off to a fiery start, with the pair going nose-to-nose during their face-off, forcing security to separate the two.
Brook explained why he dislikes Khan:
“He’s never given me respect, acknowledged me.
“He’s always run away and it’s come to this part of his career when there’s nowhere else for him to run. This is the biggest fight out there for him.
“It’s been frustrating for me, I’ve wanted this for many years.”
Khan had responded:
“I’ve never ran from him, never needed to, what I’ve achieved in sport speaks for itself, but we’re here now.
“At the end of the day, the talk he’s been giving, February 19, he needs to back them words up.”
