So, no judges scoring the contest and the bout won't count towards his professional record.

While Khan's next combative-gig won't be an MMA fight, he's flirted with the idea of facing McGregor who fought Mayweather in a mega-lucrative boxing match in 2017.

"We're at a level now where it makes great business-like Floyd Mayweather. We all learned from Floyd Mayweather - how he makes fights happen.

"Conor McGregor vs Amir Khan would be a massive fight. It'd be huge, you've got Irish vs English so that'll be massive.
