Amir Khan survives knockdown to beat Samuel Vargas

Boxer Amir Khan in action against Samuel Vargas of Colombia in Arena Birmingham, Britain, September 8, 2018.

It was a clear and unanimous points victory against a tough but moderate opponent, but Khan was knocked down in the process and was noticeably exhausted in the later stages of the 12-round contest at welterweight.

Khan had to climb off the canvas to before comfortably beating the game but limited Samuel Vargas in Birmingham. Thrilling, exciting, but always vulnerable.

It was not a performance to give Brook or former eight-weight world champion great Pacquiao too many sleepless nights, but Khan at least got the rounds under his belt after his first comeback bout, against Phil Lo Greco in April, lasted all of 40 seconds.

If the Bengals can find a way to string their good moments together, they certainly can make some noise in the AFC North. It also killed them on the ground as Baltimore's defensive line got pushed around with relative ease.

Khan is now hoping to get a crack at WBA "regular" welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao. They now share the same promoter Eddie Hearn, who tried to make Khan-Brook in 2016 and a year ago. Vargas made Khan pay for the lapse in concentration, and an overhand right to the jaw sent him down. Vargas had other ideas though as he landed a massive right hand to floor the Brit at the end of the same session to expose all of the old vulnerabilities in shocking fashion.

Khan managed to widen the points gap though with his own blistering hand speed, but was rocked again late in the fight.

AMIR KHAN believes the final chapter of his career will change how people read his ring record. Manny Pacquiao or Kell Brook?

From there, Khan used his jab and quick combinations on the inside to outbox Vargas, who was bleeding heavily from the nose.

"I want the biggest fights and that's where I belong".

But Vargas, who was stopped by Garcia in seven rounds two years ago and in four rounds by Spence in 2015, stubbornly fought back and breached Khan's defense early in the seventh round.

He added: "It could be one year, two, five or six".

And if he's messed with Brook's head, just that little bit more, that's two missions accomplished in one night.

"I want to be in the big fights and Brook is definitely someone we'll also look at", Khan said earlier this week.
