Amir Khan signs deal with Al Haymon

Alex Livesey

Amir Khan is the newest Al Haymon Guy, as the 27-year-old Brit has signed with the powerful adviser.

Al Haymon has done it again, signing another of boxing's name fighters, as he's inked Amir Khan to a deal. Khan is still with Golden Boy Promotions, like many of Haymon's fighters, but now has boxing's most powerful man in his corner.

Here's what Khan said in his official statement on the news: "I am very happy to have signed with Al Haymon who has not only shown that he is a very astute businessman, but is extremely knowledgeable of the fight game and always has his fighters' best interests at heart. I'm looking forward to building a long and successful relationship during this exciting stage of my career."

Khan (28-3, 19 KO) joins an ever-growing stable of top fighters aligned with Haymon, including Floyd Mayweather, Marcos Maidana, Adrien Broner, Danny Garcia, Leo Santa Cruz, Adonis Stevenson, Lucas Matthysse, Paulie Malignaggi, Devon Alexander, Lamont and Anthony Peterson, Peter Quillin, Erislandy Lara, Shawn Porter, Deontay Wilder, Keith Thurman, Edwin Rodriguez, Austin Trout, Chad Dawson, Andre Berto, Sakio Bika, Rances Barthelemy, Gary Russell Jr, J'Leon Love, Omar Figueroa, Chris Arreola, Josesito Lopez, Robert Guerrero, and Khan's upcoming opponent, Luis Collazo.

Khan will face Collazo (35-5, 18 KO) on the May 3 Showtime pay-per-view undercard, beneath the Mayweather vs Maidana main event. There had been talk of Khan and Haymon discussing a partnership about a month ago, so the move is no surprise. It also figures to make fights with either Mayweather or Broner that much easier to put together for Khan, should either of those bouts come up next.
