On Monday evening, former world champion Amir Khan made a surprise visit to Fox Sports 1’s airwaves during their latest telecast from the Sports House in Redwood City, Calif.

Khan is presently in Northern California working with his trainer Virgil Hunter as rumors of his future continue to swirl, with the biggest buzz being that of a potential fight with Floyd Mayweather in 2014.

Asked by analyst Barry Tompkins about his next move, Khan claimed that he is in the dark as much as anyone.

“We’re still working on a few things,” Khan stated. “We were looking at a fight against Alexander. That fell through. There’s a lot of talk about the Mayweather fight happening, but at the moment, I’ve left it up to my team and Golden Boy.”

As reported earlier today, various reports had stated that Floyd Mayweather, fresh off of his victory over Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez last month, had selected Amir Khan as his next opponent for his return to the ring in May of 2014.

And while the news spread like wildfire on social networking sites, Team Khan have since stepped forward and denied the talks, focusing the attention to a Dec. 7 showdown with Devon Alexander.

In a statement released to BoxingScene.com, Team Khan issued the following.

On Saturday night, Argentina’s Lucas Matthysse once again impressed, blitzing out a very formidable Lamont Peterson in under three rounds.

Tangling with the IBF junior welterweight titlist inside of the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, Matthysse would score a knockdown in the second round and two more in the third, the first coming from a wicked left hook, before referee Steve Smoger waived the contest off.

Matthysse sees his record improve to 34-2 with 32 knockouts as fans and insiders cross their fingers in hopes that a rumored September collision with WBA/WBC champion Danny Garcia will come to fruition.

There were several boxing luminaries in the building for Matthysse’s virtuoso display, including former junior welterweight champion Amir Khan.

On Saturday night, IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander (24-1, 13 KO’s) will look to make the first successful defense of his title when he meets up with Colchester’s Lee Purdy (20-3-1, 13 KO’s) inside of the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

Having seen a scheduled fight with British star Kell Brook fall through on three separate occasions, Alexander may very well end up facing his countryman Amir Khan next instead.

The latest rumors have Khan, a former champion at 140 pounds, eyeing a move to the welterweight division for his December 7th return, possibly against Alexander.

Devon Alexander: ‘Every guy that Amir Khan gets in the ring with who’s elite, he loses’

Speaking with reporter Michelle Phelps, IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander speaks on the recent rumors going around that he could be facing off with former junior welterweight champion Amir Khan come December. Here what Devon had to say…

On Friday night, inside of the DC Armory in Washington, DC, IBF junior welterweight titlist Lamont Peterson made a stirring return to the ring in halting a game but outgunned Kendall Holt inside of eight rounds.

Peterson was sidelined all of last year due to failing a pre-fight drug test ahead of his scheduled rematch this past May with Amir Khan, who he had upset in December of 2011.

After Khan saw his opportunity for revenge against Peterson go up in flames, he then turned his attention to a July encounter with Philadelphia’s Danny Garcia. In a shocker, Garcia would drop Khan three times on his way towards a 4th round TKO.

At the moment, there is still no official opponent locked in for former junior welterweight champion Amir Khan’s April 20th return.

One fight removed from his upset loss to Danny Garcia this past July in Las Vegas, Khan has since seen his spirits restored after teaming up with Northern California’s Virgil Hunter. The duo’s first ring endeavor resulted in Khan dominating and bloodying an outmatched Carlos Molina over ten rounds before the fight was called off.

While the very capable Josesito Lopez appeared to be in the running to face Khan, the two sides couldn’t agree on a catch weight for the fight, leaving the Bolton star without a dance partner as his next fight creeps closer.

One man who is throwing his name into the hat is former two-time champion Julio Diaz.
