Haroon Khan Back in Action in Bolton on June 7th

Rising star Haroon Khan will be back in action against Kyle King at the Reebok Stadium in Bolton on June 7.

The super-flyweight will fight for the first time in his hometown since turning professional in April last year, when he features in a six-round contest.

Looking to go from strength-to-strength following his decisive points win over Francis Croes in February, the 2010 Commonwealth Games bronze medalist 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," said Haroon Khan.

"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 June 7 I aim to show all the hardwork 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."

Amir Khan, who is coming off an excellent victory over Luis Collazo earlier this month, is also set to be in attendance as he overlooks the career of his younger sibling.

"I've been spending some time with Haroon and watching him train, giving him tips and helping out where I can," said Amir Khan.

"It's noticeable to me the progress he has made since I last saw him fight. He's been putting in the hours in the gym and he's developing a really exciting, fan-friendly style that I'm sure he will once again show on June 7 at the Reebok Stadium.

"I remember when I fought at the Reebok Stadium against Mario Kindelan and it was really special for me, I'm sure it will be much the same for Haroon fighting on home turf.

"We're expecting some big things from Haroon and I know he has all the tools to deliver."
