Khan back in action
Rising star Haroon Khan will be back in action next month when he faces 24-year-old Kyle King at the Reebok Stadium in Bolton.
The super-flyweight ace will fight for the first time in his hometown since turning professional in April last year, when he features in a six-round contest on Saturday 7th June.
The 23-year-old has made an emphatic start to life in the paid ranks having blasted his way past all four opponents including a stunning stoppage of Vincente Medellin in Atlantic City on his US debut.
Looking to go from strength-to-strength following his decisive points win over Francis Croes in February, the 2010 Commonwealth Games bronze medallist can’t wait to get back in action when he takes on the tricky King who has won four of his seven fights.
“Since the last time I fought I’ve been itching to get back in the ring,” Khan said.
“I’ve been ticking over in the gym and had some great sparring that’s really been of huge benefit to me. I think in this fight I’ll show how much I’m progressing under Oliver Harrison and all his team.
“We’re building something, and on 7th June I aim to show all the hard work we as a team have been putting in.
I can’t wait to fight at the Reebok Stadium and I’m determined to get another win under my belt to continue my progression to what I believe will one day be the very top.”
