The Pakistani origin British boxer wished for a showdown against Vijender Singh before he boxed against Saul Canelo Alvarez, who belonged to a different weight category. Khan fought well till the sixth round, but, Alverez’s one powerful strike knocked him out.
The 30-year old Vijender Singh said, “Mine and Amir’s weight categories are different. So, in case he increases his weight or I decrease mine then we can work it out. We are thinking about it, so let’s see. I hope that when that big fight happens, it happens in India only.”
