Boxer Amir Khan back on Sky Sports


Champ signs three-fight deal with broadcaster

AMIR Khan is back on Sky Sports and promising his legion of British fans a title defence to remember.

Khan’s forthcoming defence of his WBA and IBF Super Lightweight world titles against American Lamont Peterson will be screened on Sky next month.

Live coverage of the December 10 bout from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center will be the first of three fights featuring Khan to be shown on Sky Sports.

And Khan is promising his British fans they won’t be disappointed.

“I’m delighted to be on Sky Sports,” he said.

“They are dedicated to broadcasting the biggest fights, so I’m excited about working together again.  Fighting in America can make it difficult for my British fans to see me live in action, but being on Sky Sports means they can cheer me on and enjoy the fight as it happens from home. 

“I’m training harder than ever for this fight and I guarantee the fans won’t want to miss it!”

Barney Francis Managing Director of Sky Sports said the broadcaster was pleased to see the Brit champ back on its screens.

“This is great news for Sky subscribers,” he said.

“We’re pleased to welcome Amir back, and delighted to be showing his next three fights on Sky Sports.  Khan vs. Peterson follows a great autumn of boxing on Sky Sports, and this fight will be part of a great month of boxing on Sky Sports that includes four world title fights and some of the biggest names in British and world boxing.”
