Amir Khan insists he will come back stronger after suffering a crushing defeat in Las Vegas at the weekend.

The Bolton boxer was stopped in the fourth round by the WBC, and now WBA, light welterweight champion Danny Garcia.

Sporting some impressive cuts and bruises, Khan told Granada Reports' Chris Hall that he'd learn from the experience and be back in the ring by December.

"I'm still a bit upset from the fight," he said.

"I know I could have avoided taking that big shot in the third round. I just never recovered from that. I think I got a bit overconfident because I'd caught him with a lot of good shots in the first two rounds. But I should never have allowed him to hit me with a shot like that.

"I can have no complaints or excuses. He beat me fair and square. His camp didn't get under my skin in the build up. Emotion didn't play a part.

I think sometimes I'm just too brave for my own good. I need to relax and not to rush."
