Khan Looks Forward To Slachev Test in Blackpool

Unbeaten prospect Haroon Khan looks forward to his clash with Bulgarian Stefan Slavchev in Blackpool on November 15.

The 2010 Commonwealth Games bronze medalist (2-0, 1KO) has made a blazing start to his professional career after making the leap into the paid ranks earlier this year, scoring a win over the tricky Brett Fidoe on debut before knocking out Vincente Medellin in a sensational performance in Atlantic City.

As the younger brother of former unified world champion, Amir Khan, the talented super-flyweight possesses much of the same skill set, including his quick hands and thrilling combinations.

He now goes into battle in his third fight against a well schooled opponent in 20-year-old Slavchev (3-8, 1 KO), leading the lineup at the town's Winter gardens in a stacked card that features no less than 14 bouts.

"I'm very pleased that my opponent has now be confirmed," said Haroon. "Now I can start working on some specific things with my trainer Oliver Harrison in order to prepare for him.

"I know Stefan will be coming to get the win so I'll need to be at my sharpest and make sure I'm ready. Training has gone great and I can see the improvements I'm making all the time in the gym.

"I can't wait for November 15 because I'm ready to put on a great performance."
