Khan, who was born and raised in Manchester and won an Olympic silver medal for Britain, also wants to avenge for Pakistan's loss to India in World Cup 2019 in his next boxing bout against Neeraj Goyat.
"Pakistan lost to India today #ICCWorldCup2019 come July 12th I will avenge the loss and knock out Neeraj Goyat on our upcoming fight in #SaudiArabia," had tweeted.
Indian pro boxer Neeraj Goyat had also replied to his tweet and said, "keep dreaming".
Pakistan have won only one of their five matches in the World Cup 2019, with a match washed off.
The Sarfaraz Ahmed-led side and one-time champion will now need to win all their remaining matches to stay in contention of semi-final qualification.
