Photos: Amir Khan, Samuel Vargas - Ready For Battle

Samuel Vargas says he has the power to knockout Amir Khan when the pair clash at Arena Birmingham on September 8, live on Sky Sports. Vargas is ranked number 9 in the WBA and knows that a win over the former unified World Champion will rocket his name into World title contention in the Welterweight division.
