Amir Khan will begin the long process of repairing his battered reputation against Joan Guzman, according to reports.

Khan, who will be making his first appearance since a devastating knockout loss to Danny Garcia in July, which saw him surrender the WBA light-welterweight crown, is rumoured to have lined up the 36-year-old.

Guzman is a former two-weight world champion and is unbeaten from his 35 fights, with 33 wins, a draw and a no contest on his record.

Trainer Freddie Roach has revealed that Khan is expected to make a comeback in December - although he may have a new coach in his corner for that date.

The Brit is tipped to announce in the near future that he has split from Roach, having grown frustrated at travelling during training camps and playing second fiddle to Manny Pacquiao.
