Amir Khan wins WBC International Welterweight Title

Olympic silver medallist Amir Khan clinched the WBC international welterweight title after knocking out Australian Billy Dib in the fourth round of his bout in the inaugural Super Boxing League here.

Khan was undoubtedly the stronger of the two as he landed a combination of punches right from the start, leaving his opponent on the floor with a left hook in the second round.

In the fourth round a double left hook again left Billy shaken, throwing in the towel to end the contest at King Abdullah Sports City.

“I felt very comfortable in there, I could see I had the strength, power and movement right early in the bout. I could see openings.Third round I capitalised more. It was a great fight,” Khan told PTI after the bout ended in the wee hours Saturday. It was a great comeback by Khan, who was knocked out by WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford in his last bout in April.
