Amir Khan’s Family Need To Tell Him To Wise Up, Says Carl Frampton

Former two-weight world champion Carl Frampton says Amir Khan’s family need to step in and tell him to avoid fighting again.

In February Khan was beaten up by long-time rival Kell Brook in a grudge match years in the making.

The one-sided nature of the result prompted many in the industry to say Khan should retire after a long and successful career.

Khan-Brook promoter Ben Shalom recently revealed that the former Olympic medallist was considering activating a rematch clause to fight Brook once again.

In his column for the Belfast Telegraph the BT boxing pundit said: “At one time, Khan was an incredible fighter and he is a ring legend for what he has done in the sport, from his Olympic silver medal to what he went on to achieve as a professional: winning world titles and fighting the biggest names in the sport.

“It has been an incredible career, but he is considering fighting on and to me, it just seems like greed almost as he must have plenty in the bank.

“After the performance he produced against Kell Brook and to want to fight him again, I think his family and those closest to him need to sit him down and tell him to wise up.”
