Khan's chin still suspect though :chin

This was not Amir Khan at his best. Having dropped opponent Samuel Vargas with his blurring speed of hand in the second round, the former light-welterweight world champion was then floored himself, but recovered to win by a unanimous points decision.

In that moment he fell to the canvas, 8000 adoring fans witnessed the narrative of Khan's 33 victories in his thirteen-year career. Thrilling, exciting, but always vulnerable.

Khan won the fight comfortably on points, over twelve rounds, 119-108, 119-109 and 118-110 on the judges' cards, in what was an eliminator for the World Boxing Association welterweight title held by Manny Pacquiao. British rival Kell Brook was also ringside, itching to get his arch foe to sign to fight in December.

Khan recovered from that second round blemish to scrape to a win, but Khan fights have never been, nor will they ever be, dull.

"I'm happy with the performance, apart from being caught in the second round," said Khan, who admitted his carelessness.

Samuel Vargas is a tough dude, didn't come to lay down.

It was a pretty good card overall. Langford vs Welborn was a war & Sam Eggington getting stopped by that Tanzanian was a HUGE upset. Eddie had already scheduled Eggington vs Brandon Rios to happen in a couple months & brought this guy in as a easy keep busy fight.....:madlol

DAZN stream looked decent. I'll probably cough up the money & subscribe. Gotta feed that boxing addiction...

Khan looked like a bag-of-shyte. Had to take his underpants off to make the weight. Avoided and swerved all honest answers regarding a big stadium Kell brook showdown too post-fight. I think Khan will push for a poss match up with Pacroid and retire. As he will surely get filled in...

Eggington made a twat of himself by mouthing off on the Sky sports hype show JD Ringside the day before how he was looking forward to appearing on the AJ card and then got legged-up on a banana skin. best fight of the night was Welborn-Langford ll.
