Where is the Amir Khan fight?

The fight takes place in Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena, which will also be the venue for UFC 200 this summer.

Who is going to win?

As the younger, but more experienced fighter in Las Vegas rings, Alvarez is going in as the favourite.

Pundits seem to be in agreement that if Khan doesn’t win this one, it’s pretty much the end of the road for him.

He’s feeling confident though:

“I feel very strong. I think it’s the strongest I’ve ever been for any fight,” Khan said to the press.

“I’ve got that extra bit of weight and it has given me an edge in power. The speed is still there as well.

“It’s improved my stability. We’ve had some great sparring partners and training camp has been good. It has been very disciplined. I am sparring 12 rounds with a lot of heavier guys.”
