The 23 year old from Loughton was closing in on a shot at Southern Area honours before a shoulder injury sidelined him – and in his absence, he’s seen other fighters steal some of the limelight from him.
That means that when Khan gets back in the ring on manager Mickey Helliet’s big show at the York Hall in Bethnal Green on Friday, November
29, he has a point to prove.
“I was about the only Asian prospect a year or so ago,” he said, “and now Shabaz Masoud and Hamza Sheeraz have been making headlines
and getting on television.
“It’s good news and I’m pleased for them, but I feel I’m the No 1 and I’m coming back to prove that.
“I’m going to take back the limelight off them.”
Khan is convinced that in 12 months’ time, he will be well known.
He said: “If it wasn’t for my shoulder, I would be in title contention now.
“It’s been disappointing to have a year out of my career, but everything happens for a reason.
“I should be in the top four in the country this time next year.
“If I didn’t think I was good enough to get there, I wouldn’t bother boxing. Financially, it’s not worth it at the moment, but I’m in boxing to be a world champion and I have tunnel vision. I’m going to get there.”
Khan sees the Southern Area super-featherweight championship as a stepping stone to world honours.
DP Carr won the vacant belt earlier this month with a razor-thin points win over Lewis Smith and Khan said: “I’ve got a six rounder this month and then maybe Mickey can get the Southern Area title.”
