Amir Khan vs Paul McCloskey: WBA Light-Welterweight Title Bout
British fighter Amir Khan (24-1, 17 KO’s) defends his WBA light-welterweight title against unbeaten Irish challenger Paul McCloskey (22-0, 12 KO’s) in Manchester on Saturday, April 16.
After a successful defense of his world junior-welterweight title with a close but unanimous decision over Marcos Maidana of Argentina on December, Khan, will once again defend it for the fourth time. If Amir Khan wins tonight, he could face WBC and WBO champion Timothy Bradley on July in Las Vegas.
But McCloskey should not be treated as a preparation bout for Bradley because the guy has something up his sleeves. He is the reigning European champion and has a flawless career of 22 fights with 12 knockouts. His most recent win was a TKO over Scottish Barry Morrison.
