Australian-based boxing journalist Anthony Cocks has been covering the sport for over 15 years for various print and online publications. He refuses to believe that Roberto Duran ever lost to Tommy Hearns and says that Jeff Fenech would destroy Chuck Norris, Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali on the same night.

Amir Khan 33-5 (20) has dismissed talk of retirement and revealed he is still interested in facing British rival Kell Brook 38-2 (26).

The 32-year-old from Bolton previously walked away from negotiations to face Brook in favour of a shot at WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford 35-0 (26) in New York on April 20.

Khan retired in the sixth round against Crawford after suffering a low blow and opting not to continue.

Despite the loss Khan says hanging up the gloves was never an option.

“It never really crossed my mind. In the fight I was still there. He was technically a very good fighter and I did find it quite hard to get to him,” Khan told The National.

“But I still think, maybe not against a Crawford… but I still feel I’m better than the guys like Danny Garcia, Lamont Peterson, Keith Thurman, Manny Pacquiao. Those fights could be big still.”

“I still have it in me. I still love the sport and I still work hard. I still feel like I’m up there.”

Khan said he would like to return to the ring in about six months’ time, with Brook at the top of his hit-list.

“I’m still in the top ten in the world and I want to fight someone in the top ten for my next fight,” Khan continued.

“Hopefully that will be in October or November time.

“We’ve got names like Kell Brook there; still the top, top fighters there… Kell Brook still excites me. It’s a fight that’s always there. People say it’s a 50/50 fight, but I believe I would take out Kell Brook in six or seven rounds.

“That’s the fight that would be an easy sell. We’re with the same promoter in Eddie Hearn. I would like to take that fight.

“He’s a great fighter, Kell, he’s done a lot in the game. And that would be a massive fight in the UK.

“I’ve done everything now I wanted to do away from the UK, in America. I want to have my next fight in the UK. And if it’s Kell, it’s Kell.”
