AMIR Khan faces Samuel Vargas at the Birmingham Arena later tonight, and fans will be hoping that it goes longer than his last fight. Here’s how to watch the fight online.
Amir Khan is about to face Samuel Vargas at the Birmingham Arena.
And fans will be hoping it lasts longer than Khan’s last fight, which clocked in at just 40 seconds.
Khan only just made the 10st 7lb weight limit earlier this week, and actually had to remove his boxer shorts to make weight.
The Bolton born boxer hopes another victory will lead to a title fight in the future.
“I’ve trained like it’s a world title fight as I know where this fight can take me,” Khan said earlier this week.
Vargas, meanwhile, has a record of 29 wins, two draws and only three defeats. That’s one fewer than the four defeats suffered by Khan in his professional career.
And Vargas certainly is confident going into tonight’s fight, describing Khan as an old man.
“I know in my heart that he knows that if I touch him he will get hurt,” Vargas said. “There is no doubt in my mind I will be victorious on Saturday night. I don’t care how I do it. I think he’s an old man, over the hill and he’s been damaged a lot.”
