Danny Garcia of the United States defeated Amir Khan of the United Kingdom via knockout three years ago and the American stated that he’s willing to give the British boxer a rematch in the near future.

“Yeah, why not, why not,” Green said in an interview with “Khan’s probably the biggest name. If it happens, it happens. It’s going to be a big fight.”

Garcia beat Khan on July 14, 2012 when the American got the surprise technical knockout victory in just the fourth round of their lightweight championship match-up. Garcia completely dominated Khan knocking him down once in the third round and twice in the fourth and final round.

However, Khan (31-3-0, 19 knockouts) has since recovered from the embarrassing TKO loss notching five straight wins since that defeat. Khan is coming off a unanimous decision win over Chris Algieri last May when he notched the World Boxing Council silver welterweight belt.

Meanwhile, Garcia (31-0-0, 18 knockouts) has won seven straight fights since his TKO win over Khan. He remains undefeated in 31 career bouts and coming off a win over veteran boxer Paul Malignaggi, who went down via ninth round TKO. A Khan vs.

Garcia rematch will be one of the biggest in match-up in 2016 if ever both sides agree to a deal. Khan is currently ranked the third best welterweight in Ring Magazine’s rankings while Green is ranked 10th.
