Khan wants shot at Garcia

Amir Khan is hoping victory against Carlos Molina in Los Angeles will earn him a second shot at Danny Garcia.

Garcia stopped Khan in four rounds in the summer to win their light-welterweight unification showdown.

And the Bolton fighter is hoping a convincing win over the unfancied - but unbeaten - Californian Molina in the early hours of Sunday morning will lead to a chance of revenge.

"I need to win this fight to get back on the scene again," he said. "It can put me back on a winning streak and maybe a rematch against Garcia. Hopefully we can get that rematch and take it from there.

"I'd love the rematch against Garcia because I know deep down I'm a better fighter than him. I made a mistake in that fight and I paid for that mistake.

"But I know I can beat him. I know I'm a better fighter, especially with the help of my new trainer Virgil Hunter and being based in San Francisco.

"I'm a better fighter and I'll knock Danny Garcia out."
