Amir Khan can’t wait to get the opportunity to take out Devon Alexander in Las Vegas on Sunday, in a clash that fans and sportsbook software services all over the world are very eager to see.
Khan, who this week turned 28-years-old, believes that fighting to defend his WBC silver welterweight title, and coming out on top, will make sure that 2015 will see him get bigger showdowns against fighters like Manny Pacquiao and the very famous Floyd Mayweather Jnr, and fans of the Briton believe that if he seriously focuses and wins he could very well go face to face with one of these boxers – who are amongst the best on the face of the earth – and they hope to see this happen pretty soon.
The Bolton fighter said: “My dream was to turn professional one day and fight at the biggest arenas at the world and have my name up in lights. This is where I’m at.
“It took 10 years to get here but it’s a dream come true. I’m topping the bill here. I’m the main attraction in Vegas. It took a lot of fighting, a lot of training and a lot of sacrifices to get into this position.
“My goals are to fight the biggest names in boxing. After Alexander, there are names like Mayweather and Pacquiao getting thrown at me. It’s all about fighting at that elite level of boxing.
“Roll on 2015. It’s a big year for me. Hopefully I’ll get past this fight, finish this year off with a big bang and go on to a huge year for me in 2015. There are going to be some huge fights for me.”
Ever since 2011 and 2012, when Khan suffered straight losses in to Lamont Peterson and Danny Garcia, the fighter – a huge favourite with the British crowd – was able to produce some very nice wins against the likes of Carlos Molina, Julio Diaz, as well as Luis Collazo, and his fans believe that his path in the sport can only go uphill.
Boxing fans around the world and sportsbook software services are anticipating a very intense showdown when Khan squares off with Alexander, and are very eager to see how he’ll perform on Sunday. If he’s able to win this meeting, things will only get better for Khan, and he could be on the road for a mega fight with the biggest names in the sport.
