Amir Khan insists he will box on despite devastating knockout

The Briton was beaten Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez over the weekend

Amir Khan insists he will continue to box after his devastating knockout loss Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez in Las Vegas over the weekend.

Khan was beaten challenging for Alvarez's WBC middleweight crown, but was stopped in the sixth round after a thunderous counter-punch left him on his back.

"It is the easiest fight to make and it's at my natural weight," he told the BBC.

"It would be nice to make that fight in the UK but I don't think he'd come. But we have the same advisor in Al Haymon so we'll chat and take it from there.

"I'm in the peak of my career, my stock has definitely risen and I still have a lot left in me. I didn't really take a lot of punishment, just that one big punch."

Khan is the mandatory challenger Danny Garcia's WBC welterweight belt and the 29-year-old maintains he isn't discouraged about the defeat. He refused to blame the weight difference between himself and Alvarez who entered the ring almost 20lbs heavier.

The match was made at a catchweight of 155lb - five pounds below the normal middleweight limit - but there was no rehydration clause in the contract agreed between both parties.

This meant Canelo could put the weight before fight night.

"I'm not going to blame anyone or say they cheated in any way" he said.

"I knew what I was getting into. I wanted to go in with the best and give the fans a big fight, but I jumped up a bit too high.

"Up until the sixth round everything was going my way. I was leading the fight. But I was hitting him and he wasn't moving - I didn't expect him to be that big.

"And if you make a little mistake against someone like Canelo, he'll make you pay. I've never been hit by a guy that hard before. That shot would have put down a lot of people."
