Amir Khan: I Want To Fight Adrien Broner Or Jessie Vargas In September

Fresh off his first-round knockout win over Phil Lo Greco, Amir Khan is aiming for bigger names in his next fight.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Khan talked about his upcoming plans for his second fight since losing to Canelo Alvarez in 2016. Aside from a potential grudge match against longtime rival Kell Brook, Khan called out former world champions Adrien Broner and Jessie Vargas. Khan said he plans to fight in September.

"I want a bigger step-up. It's hard to say name-wise who I could face. Broner. I would like to fight Broner next if I could. Broner would be good, [Jessie] Vargas would be good. I would school him. He's not at my level. I would destroy him," Khan said.

A fight between Khan and Brook had been explored for some time and with both men being signed to Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing, a fight between the two British stars is more likely than ever. Khan said he would not mind fighting on the same boxing card as Brook's next fight whenever that is in order to build up a fight between the two boxers.

Broner and Vargas recently fought each other in the main event of a Showtime Championship Boxing card from the Barclays Center back in April, with the fight ending in a majority draw.

Brook recently fought in March as a junior middleweight after losing his welterweight world title last year. Brook won the WBC Silver junior middleweight title with a second-round knockout over Siarhei Rabchanka.
