Amir Khan planning a break

Amir Khan is planning a short break but still wants a rematch with Lamont Peterson.

Great Britain's Amir Khan has revealed that he is planning to "take a couple of weeks off" following his controversial defeat to Lamont Peterson in Washington DC on Saturday.

However, the light-welterweight has also confirmed that he is keen for a rematch against the American, but only in a neutral venue.

"I'm just going to take a couple of weeks off and relax and then I'm looking for a rematch," he told Sky Sports News.

"I think it's what the public want, it's what I want and I want to make it a fair fight. I just want a fair fight, I think I was robbed there, when you fight someone away from home it's always difficult.

"I was fighting away from home, I was fighting someone in his home town so it was difficult, but if you have it fair and square and have fair judges and referee, I'm sure it would be better."

Khan, 25, lost his WBA and IBF light-welterweight titles in the bout.
