Haroon Khan Admits He Could Have Fought Bettter

Haroon Khan marked his professional debut with a 40-37 points win over Lincoln's Brett Fidoe at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield tonight. The 21-year-old younger brother of Amir looked ragged at times but had too much power for his limited opponent, who slipped to his third defeat in four professional bouts.

The younger Khan had taken his time to turn over to the paid ranks after winning a bronze medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi representing Pakistan. He served early notice of his attacking intent by backing Fidoe into a neutral corner on the back of a strong left hand, but the game Fidoe did a good job of preventing the favourite gaining too much momentum.

Khan pressed home his advantage in the second and third but Fidoe regrouped for a strong fourth and last round, landing a couple of right hands of his own and doing enough to share it on the referee's card.

Khan admitted: "I could have fought better and there was a lot more pressure out there. But I felt good and I'm glad I got the win. Now I'm looking to get going in my next few fights."

I was never impressed by Haroon and yesterday confirmed why. He is just not as talented as his big brother. Add that with him being stubborn. He is average.
