Amir ‘King’ Khan has been looking for a comeback ever since his defeat against Terence Crawford in April. The plan was to move forward with Neeraj Goyat as Khan’s next opponent, but the 27-year suffered severe injuries in a recent accident in India.
So naturally, Goyat’s dropout from the fight was announced following the tragic incident. The search for Khan’s next opponent ended with Billy Dib. The 33-year Former World Featherweight Champion who hails from Australia will meet Khan in the ring on July 12. In a tweet Billy posted recently, he called the fight as a dream come true for him, and also added that it will be his “toughest test” to date.
The fight for WBC International Welterweight will take place at the King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah. Amir Khan has been in Saudi Arabia, so the setting is not too unfamiliar for him. As he describes, it was an offer that he could not refuse.
The upcoming title fight will headline the boxing scene in the second week of July. You can follow this guide to watch Amir Khan vs Billy Dib on Kodi.
