Former junior welterweight champion Amir Khan is one of the UK’s and boxing brightest stars. He recently suffered an upset loss to Lamont Peterson in his home town of Washington D.C. and is now looking to reclaim his titles on May 19th in Las Vegas.

Khan spoke to us about a subject he is becoming all familiar with….MMA. Khan of course trains at the world famous Wild Card Gym under the watchful eye of Freddie Roach and interacts with UFC welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre on a frequent basis. So it was natural that we asked Amir Khan his thoughts about MMA, British bred stars such as Dan Hardy and Michael Bisping as well the growth of the sport in the UK. See what the former champion had to say in this exclusive interview.
