Anything but a convincing win for Amir Khan will surely end his boxing career at the elite level making it a very important fight for revival of Khan’s career. This fight is pretty much a tune up to an one more and probably last big fight for Khan which might well be against domestic rival Kell Brook later in the year or early next year which is still a big money fight. So a lot is at stake for Khan going into this low key fight in Birmingham.
