Amir Khan won't face Vyacheslav Senchenko, Pablo Cesar Cano a possible opponent

Jeff Gross

Amir Khan is still searching for an opponent for his April return to the United Kingdom, but Vyacheslav Senchenko is out of the running.

While Amir Khan is still on the hunt to secure an opponent for his April return to the ring, which will take place in the United Kingdom, one name definitely out is Vyacheslav Senchenko, who has rejected a catchweight offer.

Khan is reportedly down to two possibilities: Humberto Soto, who was rumored initially, but Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy says won't be the opponent; and Pablo Cesar Cano, who last fought in October, losing a debatable decision to Paulie Malignaggi.

Khan (27-3, 19 KO) is coming off of a one-sided beating of Carlos Molina in December, which stopped a two-fight losing streak. The 26-year-old Khan hasn't fought in the UK since April 2011, when he defeated Paul McCloskey.

Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy says that Showtime is willing to air a fight from overseas, which would go live in the afternoon in the States, but that it limits the potential for a big-name opponent.

If it's down to Soto or Cano, which fight would you rather see?
