Amir Khan: No mistakes second time if Danny Garcia comes calling again

Amir Khan vows he will not make the same mistakes if he is given a second chance to take on Danny Garcia.

Khan returned to winning ways last weekend with a stoppage of unbeaten Carlos Molina, that victory coming five months after he lost his WBA light-welterweight title to Garcia in Las Vegas.

The Bolton fighter was knocked down three times in that bout, but he looked far more assured in Los Angeles on Saturday when pummelling Molina into submission in the 10th.

Khan says his move to new trainer Virgil Hunter has made a big difference and is adamant he will not be susceptible to the same errors he made against Garcia if they meet again in the second half of 2013.

He said: "I was beating him (Garcia) convincingly and then got caught with a shot - I think I was beating him more easily for the first two rounds than I was Molina.

"I believe in myself in that fight. I got caught by a shot I shouldn't have been caught by. Maybe I was too confident, thinking I was untouchable and that no one could hurt me.

"But it is all about regrouping and I will be back stronger now. My new trainer is going to help me a lot and I can already see a change in my style.

"We are not going to make these mistakes again and we are not going to be giving opponents a chance now."
