‘Now or never’ for Khan and Brook to fight, says promoter Hearn

Amir Khan ring girls

Eddie Hearn - who promotes both Brook and Khan - said the domestic bout between his fighters "has to happen next or it never will".

The Bolton welterweight, in his second fight since returning to the ring after a two-year absence, was knocked to the floor in the final seconds of the second round. "If not we go back to the drawing board and if it's Kell Brook, it's Kell Brook". Indeed, the Briton's speed had appeared too much for his opponent early on, knocking Vargas down at the beginning of the second and then pressing on to capitalise on his advantage.

The Colombian-born Vargas, a former North American champion, had already been put down himself when he stunned Khan and the capacity crowd.

But Filipino veteran Pacquiao is demanding more than £10m to travel to the United Kingdom to face the former world light-welterweight champion. Vargas had other ideas though as he landed a massive right hand to floor the Brit at the end of the same session to expose all of the old vulnerabilities in shocking fashion.

Russian bombers were intercepted near Alaska
Under its rules, the USA requests any foreign aircraft to identify itself and its flight plan when entering the air defense zone. Russian bombers in the past have conducted mock missile attacks against USA missile defenses in Alaska.


In round 10, Khan was saved by the bell again, having been stiffened by a Vargas right hand.

"When it was first announced, I actually thought that Khan would beat Kell" Nelson told iFL TV.

'100 per cent I won't, and I will beat Manny Pacquiapo and Kell Brook. He's the fastest fighter I've ever seen.

He was up quickly but was immediately sent staggering backwards again amid more lightning Khan combinations.

White House says Manafort plea is 'totally unrelated' to Trump's 'victorious' campaign
To that end, his plea deal with Manafort could potentially lead to valuable insight into the inner workings of the Trump campaign. Last month, Paul Manafort was found guilty on eight of eighteen counts of fraud by a jury in the Eastern District of Virginia.


This was a lot more hard than the 39-second demolition job on Phil Lo Greco five months ago in another step back before a big fight after being knocked cold by Saul Alvarez in May 2015.

But Vargas, who was stopped by Garcia in seven rounds two years ago and in four rounds by Spence in 2015, stubbornly fought back and breached Khan's defense early in the seventh round.

But Khan's work rate dipped in the tenth, allowing Vargas to land more punches and finished the round by landing a solid right hook on Khan's chin which turned his legs to jelly.

And if he's messed with Brook's head, just that little bit more, that's two missions accomplished in one night.
