When is the Amir Khan vs Vargas fight?
Amir Khan and Samuel Vargas will go head-to-head at the Birmingham Arena on Saturday, September 8. The fight is expected to begin at around 10pm BST in the UK, 5pm ET and 2pm PT.
Amir Khan is the back in the ring. The fleet-footed British boxer continues his comeback against Samuel Vargas on Saturday night, and we're here to help you stream the whole fight live no matter where you are in the world - it's even being broadcast for FREE in some regions.
After his damaging defeat to Canelo Alvarez in 2016, Khan has been rebuilding. A two year absence was brought to an end in April when Khan emphatically saw off Phil Lo Greco in just 39 seconds. Now he faces stiffer opposition with Colombian Samuel Vargas flying in for the bout on a career record of 29 wins – 14 by knock-out - three losses and two draws.
Adding considerable spice to the occasion is the probability that the winner will get to take on Manny Pacquiao, with the fight likely to become a WBA World Title eliminator. Khan will enter as favorite but Vargas has age and potentially energy on his side, being three years younger than 31-year-old Amir Khan.
Will Samuel Vargas find the hammer blow on Khan's suspect chin or go the same way as Lo Greco? You can find out by following the instructions below and tuning into a live stream of the hotly-anticipated Amir Khan vs Vargas fight, whether you're UK, Canada or somewhere else altogether - and those lucky, lucky folk in the US can watch it for FREE on Facebook or Twitter.
