Vargas: I Have To Stay in Amir Khan's Face, Not Let Him Think

Former light welterweight world champion Amir Khan plans to put on a show when he faces Colombian Samuel Vargas on September 8, as the Bolton star continues his quest to earn a tilt at winning the welterweight world title.

The 31-year-old will meet Vargas in Birmingham hoping a convincing display will get him a world title fight before the end of the year.

Vargas, who is based in Toronto, Canada, is ranked 10 in the WBA division.

Khan fought for first time in almost two years, and won for the first time since 2015, when he demolished another fighter from Toronto, Canadian Phil Lo Greco in 39 seconds in April.

Vargas ended up with him on the wrong end of a knockout against both Gracia and Spence.

Vargas, whose last fight ended in a draw with Mauro Godoy in February, said he would put up a much better performance against the 2004 Olympic silver medallist than Lo Greco had done.

“I feel like I have to adjust, the first couple of rounds, to his speed. I have to adjust to his speed and land my shots. Get in his face, be on his chest, be a rough guy. I have to make him feel like I’m the man in the ring. I cannot give him time to think too much. That’s my game plan for now,” Vargas said to Boxing News.

“What’s there to be impressed about? I can’t blame him for it. Who was he fighting? 35 seconds of what? He could have broke more of a sweat hitting the bag really. He [Lo Greco] made all of us from Canada look bad. I don’t count his last fight as getting the ring rust [off], I don’t think he got hit at all.

“I feel like this is my time. It depends which Amir Khan shows up. That’s how I have it in my mind. But either way I’m going to show up. I’m going to be there and I’m going to do my job.”

[QUOTE=thack;18914241]Lol....What for hitting the deck.The kid's useless .Why do you think he's picking these fights ? It's not because of anything other than protecting a very weak jaw.That would be exposed again by any decent fighter should he ever find…

Amir Khan can hit a small guy and run just like Daniel Kickert. Bully a midget and run fast down under!
