WBO champion Jeff Horn concedes a future battle against Amir Khan is “certainly a plausibility” after the British star reported his arrival to the welterweight division.

The Australian held his belt in December after a stoppage prevail upon Londoner Gary Corcoran, with Khan viewing from ringside following the finish of his stay in the truth indicate ‘I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!’

Horn faces the hardest trial of his unbeaten vocation as he plans to make a normal title protection against Terence Crawford at Madison Square Garden on April 14, however says the returning Khan is “on my radar”.

“Amir Khan is a huge name in the game. He’s a decent warrior. For what reason not state that I would battle another English contender.

“It’s certainly a probability and on my radar constantly.”

Khan has begun preparing for his own particular British homecoming session against Phil Lo Greco in Liverpool, after seven days on April 21.

The previous world super-lightweight champion has been missing from the ring since a stoppage misfortune to Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in May 2016 and Horn is holding up to see whether Khan can at present contend at a similar exclusive expectation.

“Amir Khan is an extremely skilful boxer. He’s snappy, yet he’s been out for some time now,” said Horn.

“When he last battled he got thumped out against ‘Canelo’ in his last execution.

“He’s most likely going to require somewhat of a rebound battle and afterward he will substantiate himself once more.

“I trust he does well, however I don’t know whether he’s still got it in him or not.”
