Live on Skysports 1: Sun 02.00: Amir Khan fights unbeaten Danny Garcia and the Bolton man is 5/4 to win by knockout, via Paddy Power.
Amir Khan faces something of a crossroads fight in Las Vegas as he tackles unbeaten American Danny Garcia at the Mandalay Bay resort. Khan lost his last bout in controversial circumstances against Lamont Peterson, who has since tested positive for synthetic testosterone and although that reverse could yet be overturned, another defeat for the Bolton banger would be a real setback.
Khan however, is just 1/5 courtesy of BetVictor to come out on top in Sin City, where bet365 chalk a hungry Garcia up at 9/2 to improve his stock by adding the vacant WBA light welterweight belt to the WBC strap already in his possession following his March triumph over the veteran Erik Morales.
The Philadelphia native is certainly confident in the build-up to the scrap, as he should be with a 24-0 record but Khan’s speed and use of combinations should be too much for Garcia, whose lack of head movement might make him an easy target. Skybet’s 7/4 for the 25-year-old Brit to triumph on points catches the eye then while the confident might fancy a Khan KO at 5/4 via Paddy Power.
