Should Khan defend his WBA and IBF light-welterweight belts successfully against Peterson in his next fight, then he will move up to welterweight with the potential plan to face Hatton should he get his hands on the belt.
Hatton 30, will be looking to make it third time lucky at winning a version of the world title after twice missing out previously to Lovemore N’dou for the IBF title in 2009 a fight that ended in a draw and earlier this year he lost to Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez for his WBC light middleweight crown via a points decision in what was a gallant effort non the less by Hatton.
US capital Washington and Hatton will be on his third world title shot in
the space of two years.
Khan is ultimatly chasing a fight with Floyd Mayweather and believes he
is two fights away from meeting the boxer regarded by many as the best
of his generation.
A fight with Matthew Hatton, Ricky Hatton’s brother is a possibility when I move up to 147 next year.” – Amir Khan.
Amir Khan has cleared up in the light-welterweight division and has spoken about moving up to welterweight which is where I compete so, if I can get hold of one of the titles, it’s a natural fight and it’s something I am very keen to do.” – Matthew Hatton.
Another British boxer from the Northwest is the undefeated WBA International welterweight champion Kell Brook and he might just have something to say himself about title shots and big fight showdowns! and will look to put any talk of a Khan v Hatton fight to bed as he aims for a fight with champion Viacheslav Senchenko himself and then a fight with Khan.
Brook puts his unbeaten record on the line this weekend, along with his belt, on Saturday night in his hometown of Sheffield, against Rafal Jackiewicz. We will follow with a full report on Brooks fight.
