NEWS May 16, 2017 George Gigney
Amir Khan no longer WBC welterweight mandatory challenger
Inactivity sees Amir Khan removed from the WBC ranking

AMIR KHAN is no longer the WBC’s No 1 welterweight challenger and has been removed from their top 15 altogether due to inactivity.

The former super-lightweight world champion had been placed in the top spot after moving to 147lbs, potentially setting up a clash with former conqueror Danny Garcia, who previously held the WBC welterweight title.


Garcia has since been defeated by Keith Thurman, and in their latest set of rankings the WBC removed Khan, who has not fought since his knockout loss to Canelo Alvarez in a 155lb catchweight contest in May 2016.

“Amir Khan was a mandatory before. Then he fought Canelo. Then he would remain as mandatory, but then he got injured. He has been out of the ring for so long, that [inactivity] took over,” WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman told Boxing News.

After losing to Canelo, Khan underwent surgery on a long-standing hand injury and was granted a medical extension to his mandatory status by the WBC. That has now expired, meaning a new No 1 has been made.


The WBC originally looked to Tim Bradley, who was at No 2, to see if he would participate in a final eliminator but he declined, according to the WBC.

Shawn Porter was then matched with Andre Berto in a final eliminator and Porter – a former IBF champion – stopped Berto to become Thurman’s mandatory challenger, setting up a potential rematch between the pair after Thurman defeated Porter last year.

Though Khan has lost his high standing with the WBC, he is still looking at big fights when he does return to the ring. Domestic rival and IBF champion Kell Brook and WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao are two lucrative options that Khan has mentioned, but both have fights to get through first.

Khan has said that he plans to box again in November and will reveal his next fight after Ramadan.

Cash out Khan against Brook.

He's made a great career for himself but nows the time to get that last one big pay day and retire

Khan could possibly be fighting Brook for a bucket load of money at a stadium next weekend if he hadn't been so deluded.  If Brook loses next weekend, it's a much, much smaller fight than it would have been.  If Brook wins, Khan will either be so far off the radar the fight doesn't happen or so much the B-side that his ego wouldn't be able to handle taking 25% for the fight to happen. 

Brook had his orbital broken by the middleweight champion and will still fight six months before Khan will be close to the ring again.  Wouldn't be surprised if Khan's next fight is a rematch with Julio Diaz.

We may scoff at Khan but who is making millions for mockery?

If he gets a fight with Manny or Brook he cashes out.  His only problem is getting the money he wants as his relevance slips from the market.

By rights with his recent record he needs a fight that brings him back up in rankings. I think Khan's mind set is like mine would be if I had to run 100 sprint.  I would ask to run against the very best in a two man race.  So I could only ever come second and could be revered for taking the challenge against the best and not taking on easier opposition. Little did they all know that I didn't want everyone to know that the easier opposition would have also beaten me Smiley
