Amir Khan hasn't taken too long to figure out what he wants to do next, as the two-time former junior welterweight titlist wants to rematch Danny Garcia in December, he told the BBC.

Khan (26-3, 18 KO) was upset by Garcia last Saturday in Las Vegas, stopped in the fourth round of an exciting fight that could have easily ended in the third. The 25-year-old former Olympic silver medalist has taken the loss well publicly, giving Garcia his due credit and saying he'll come back stronger from the defeat.

Garcia's team, namely father and trainer Angel Garcia, have already said they're not interested in a rematch with Khan. Money talks, and that could change. HBO is said to be highly interested in a rematch, and if the deal is right, I'm sure Garcia's team would give in and make it happen. It's a good fight, and though Khan may not deserve an immediate rematch, money talks.

One thing you shouldn't expect is Garcia facing WBC mandatory challenger Ajose Olusegun. It's possible that Garcia will give up the WBC belt (he picked up the WBA super title by beating Khan), which would allow Olusegun to face Lucas Matthysse later this year for the vacant title, or at least that's one idea floating around. That or the WBC will continue to push Olusegun further away until he and his team finally take the hint and move on with their lives. It's a shitty way to break up with someone, and is totally gutless, but it can be effective.
