Amir Khan vs. Samuel Vargas - Undercard Update

By Elliot Foster

Amir Khan has had a few names added to his next undercard.

Khan takes on Samuel Vargas on September 8 at the Arena Birmingham, exclusively live on Sky Sports, as he builds towards a welterweight showdown with former IBF world champion Kell Brook towards the end of the year.

Tommy Langford aims to claim back the British middleweight title when he takes on fellow Midlander Jason Welborn in a rematch on the card, while Gamal Yafai and Sam Eggington will feature.

It was already announced, too, that Ryan Kelly will defend his Midlands Area super-welterweight title against Kelcie Ball.

But it has now been confirmed that Lewis Ritson, the outright British lightweight champion, will box on the bill before making his comeback in his hometown of Newcastle on October 13 at the Metro Radio Arena.

Osman Aslam, the man who boxed on Khan’s April obliteration of Phil Lo Greco, gets another outing, while there will be action for Kieron Conway and Shakan Pitters.

And MTK Global have been forced to alter the main event for their next show after Willie Limond withdrew through injury.

Limond had been set to face Darragh Foley over 10 rounds on August 24 at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow, Scotland, but they have moved quickly to ensure that Foley isn’t left in the dark.

‘Super’ will now take on Chris Jenkins.
