Amir Khan has had his WBA light-welterweight belt reinstated ahead of his fight with WBC champion Danny Garcia on Saturday.

Khan controversially lost his WBA and IBF titles to Lamont Peterson in December and has welcomed the decision by the governing body. A rematch was ordered following an appeal by Khan's camp but was then cancelled when the American failed a drugs test.

"Justice has been done," said Khan, who is 1.16 to defeat Garcia.

"I'm glad the WBA are reinstating me as champion; it means I walk into this fight as world champion.

"There is a chance to win the WBC belt as well but, not only that, the Ring magazine title will be on the line. There are five main belts in this division and I will have won four of them if I win this fight.

"The only one I have not won is the WBO one, but I tried to fight Tim Bradley for that and he turned me down. If I win against Garcia, it means I have done everything I want to do in this division."
