Britain’s former two-time world champion Amir Khan says “retirement is not on my radar,” insisting he still has “one or two more” fights left.
Some reports on Friday suggested the 33-year-old was considering walking away from the sport.
“Obviously with this coronavirus, it sends us a bit loopy at times and you say things you don’t really mean,” Khan told BBC Sport.
Khan’s last outing was in July 2019, a fourth-round stoppage win against Australian Billy Dib in Saudi Arabia.
The Bolton fighter, a former light-welterweight world champion with the WBA and IBF, says although he would like to go straight into a world title fight, he may first take a tune-up bout against a top-10 contender.
