Billy Dib savaged by Amir Khan in 'bizarre' Saudi Arabian bout

Khan all set for fight in Saudi Arabia

Olympic silver medallist Amir Khan clinched the WBC worldwide welterweight title after knocking out Australian Billy Dib in the fourth round of his bout in the inaugural Super Boxing League here.

The 33-year-old had originally been slated to fight on Khan's undercard, but after the British star's original opponent suffered a auto accident, Dib stood in as a replacement.

Dib hit the deck once again before his corner decided it woild be best to throw in the towel.

In a battle of former two-time champions, Amir Khan (34-5, 21 KOs) dropped Billy Dib (45-6, 26 KOs) twice to stop him in the fourth round.

"I had a great time, the event was very well-organized", said Abdulelah al-Gain, a 25-year-old Jeddah resident who attended the fight.

Fortbytes can offer challenging objectives from time to time, but we'll always be down for simple location based challenges too. It's southeast of Pleasant Park, sort of halfway between there and Neo Tilted (west and little south of Loot Lake).

Khan had returned to the ring just 12 weeks after urinating blood from body shots and being stopped by a punch to the groin in the sixth round at the hands of undefeated three weight world champion and top-ranked pound-for-pound boxer Terence Crawford at Madison Square Garden, New York, in a bid for the World Boxing Organisation crown. I think whenever I fight I always make it very exciting - the people here love a fight.

"Hopefully, we come back again at the end of the year and bring Pacquiao here". I slowed down a little bit instead of rushing all the time, I was seeing everything.

Next up for Pacquiao is a WBA super welterweight title fight with Keith Thurman and Khan thinks his former sparring partner will have too much for the American.

After the fight, Amir Khan said he hoped to come to the Kingdom more often, praising the "great show in Jeddah", and said there were "many more to come in Saudi Arabia" in a tweet.
