Warren went on to explain “Currently Khan is in no man’s land as he has not fought in the UK since his 2013 win over Julio Diaz and he has only been in a British ring twice since 2009”.
But he needs to come home and rebuild his career and what better way to start by taking on Londoner Skeete. Warren also brought up the fact that Bradley Skeete currently holds the no. 3 spot on the WBO’s rankings, if Khan can pull off a victory in a matchup with Skeete and Warren says while it is a ‘big if’, Khan could earn himself a spot back in title contention.
This matchup could be seen as somewhat of a crossroads fight because if we see Khan win, we see him begin to regain his status and show the world he has a lot more in the tank and is a legitimate threat still at world level. However, if Skeete can pull off the coup it is likely we will witness a changing of the guard, as he will finally get exposure in a breakthrough fight with an opponent who has achieved global recognition who is now in the twilight of his career, rapidly approaching his retirement.
