Speaking from his Los Angeles training camp, the former unified Super-Lightweight ruler insisted he will need to beat Canadian based Columbian Vargas in style if he is to secure a shot at Welterweight World honours later this year.

Khan is approaching his second fight under vastly experienced trainer Joe Goossen and is confident that the extra time he has spent in the gym with Goossen will benefit him greatly come fight night on September 8.
