Amir Khan's next fight targeted for April on Showtime

Jeff Gross

Following an easy win over Carlos Molina on December 15, Amir Khan is scheduled to return to Showtime on April 13 or 20.

Amir Khan had no trouble this past Saturday night in an easy win over undersized and overmatched Carlos Molina in his first fight on Showtime, and he'll return to the network on April 13 or 20, according to Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy in a report at BoxingScene.com.

Khan (27-3, 19 KO) won after ten rounds when the Molina corner advised referee Jack Reiss to stop the fight, and the frontrunner to face Khan in April remains Josesito Lopez, who could be able to fight at either 140 or 147 pounds. Khan seems to have his heart set on staying at 140 for now, as he's publicly pursuing a rematch with Danny Garcia for sometime in 2013. Lopez has mostly fought at 140 in his career, though he beat Victor Ortiz at 147 in June, and was pummeled by Canelo Alvarez at 154 in September.

Another potential scenario is a rematch with Paulie Malignaggi for Malignaggi's WBA welterweight title. Currently, it appears as though Paulie will fight Shane Mosley, but that idea has taken some very heavy criticism already. Khan routed Malignaggi in 2010 at 140 pounds, but Schaefer feels that with the way their careers have gone since then, the fight is commercially viable.

Khan signed a three-fight deal with Showtime after the win over Molina.
