Khan climbs off the canvas to beat Vargas in Birmingham

Former world champion Amir "King" Khan (33-4, 20 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over Samuel Vargas (29-4, 14 KOs) in a welterweight clash at the Arena Birmingham in Birmingham, England.

He returned to the ring after a blistering performance against Phil Lo Greco earlier this year, in April, in a fight that lasted only 39 seconds.

Brook was not impressed hearing Khan installing Pacquiao as his No.1 choice and insisted he would have knocked his fellow Brit out had he been in Vargas' position. "If not we go back to the drawing board and if it's Kell Brook, it's Kell Brook".

From there, with new trainer Joe Goossen looking to refine the early mistakes, Khan began to show his world class boxing skills as he beautifully circled his man and sprung into life with electrifying pace in the succeeding rounds.

"I wanted to pick my shots but he kept coming so I didn't have to look for him". I've got a 100% record against southpaws and that would be a more technical, tactical fight.
