THE LATEST ON AMIR KHAN VS SAMMY VARGAS
Earlier this week Amir Khan, Sammy Vargas, Sam Eggington, Gamal Yafai and a number of boxers on Saturday night’s bill took part in a huge open workout near the Bullring – giving us an insight into how the bouts may go come the weekend!
This Saturday marks the return of Amir Khan to Birmingham - he loves the city, he loves the people and he loves boxing in Brum! (he said so himself)
The former unified Super-Lightweight ruler is setting his sights on Welterweight World honours this year and steps up that pursuit in when he goes head-to-head with the very dangerous Colombian Vargas, the 29 year old ranked number 10 in the WBA and having shared the ring with current IBF king Errol Spence and Khan’s old foe Danny Garcia...and the pair both donned the ring during the open work-out at the Bullring earlier this week.
Both fighters looked pretty relax, with Vargas spending a bit of time updating his social media before taking to the pads. The duo both looked really sharp, but it was Khan who lapped up the biggest applause - we just hope he can deliver the good again like he did on his return earlier on in the year in Manchester.
As well as the huge main event, the undercard is packed full of big fights and big boxers including the likes of Sam Eggington, Gamal Yafai and Ryan Kelly! Here's the full card. There's also a huge clash between Jason Welborn and Tommy Langford which is set to be HUGE!
