Amir Khan will probably fight only once more at light-welterweight before moving up a division.

Khan, 24, aims to add the WBC title to the WBA and IBF belts he holds. "I wanted to fight [Timothy] Bradley for the undisputed title but he turned it down, so the WBC stripped him," Khan said yesterday. "[Erik] Morales is fighting for that in September, so if he wins he could be an option."

The Bolton boxer does have another option, though, to fight the IBF's No 1 contender Lamont Petersen.
