Amir Khan revives from heavy knockdown to beat Samuel Vargas

Amir Khan had to climb off the canvas to beat Samuel Vargas after a dramatic welterweight clash in Birmingham.

The former world champion was making his second ring outing following an absence of almost two years and, after brushing aside Phil Lo Greco last time out, he was given a much sterner test by Vargas.

‘King’ Khan again showed his blistering hand-speed, twice dropping his Colombian counterpart, but he also showed worrying signs of fragility when a huge right hand dropped him at the end of the second round.
