Amir Khan returns to action tonight following consecutive losses against Lamont Peterson and Danny Garcia, in a light-welter clash with former Lightweight Carlos Molina at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles.

Khan split with Freddie Roach following the defeats, citing a need for more one-on-one time with a trainer to concentrate on defence.

This lead to Khan appointing Andre Ward's trainer, Virgil Hunter.

Khan has been vocal in seeking a rematch with Danny Garcia in 2013 should his new regime prove to be successful.

"It was a hard one to overcome at the time. I was feeling so bad, trying to come to terms with it all." said 26-year old Khan who tonight will be having his 30th bout.
