Amir Khan : Samuel Vargas Win Will Be A Welterweight Statement
Amir Khan is planning to make a statement to all welterweights with his upcoming fight against Columbian Samuel Vargas at Arena Birmingham on September 8.
The former World champion, will be fighting for the first time in two years at 147 after facing Canelo and (Phil) Lo Greco at 150 but seem to be planning a long stay in the division.
“I want to fight at 147 because I am a welterweight fighter, and I’ve made that clear,” Khan told Sky Sports.
“147 is the weight I fight at, and I also want to get high in the world rankings, because the world rankings at the moment are confused what weight I am in.
“For 154 [rankings], I fought at 150 twice before – my last two, against ‘Canelo’ and (Phil) Lo Greco – so this is the fight that will show I am a 147 fighter.
“I will be ranked at 147 and I want to see where they put me. I want to win a world title again. There are titles after this one, there are other big fighters out there, but we are taking it one step at a time.”
