AMIR KHAN DEFEATS BILLY DIB & CALLS OUT MANNY PACQUIAO
Dib came in as a very late replacement. Dib, who never fought beyond the lightweight limit of 135-pounds, was moving up by two weight divisions to take the fight.
Khan was coming back from an April stoppage loss to WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford.
Khan was stalking Dib in the first round. During the second, Khan began to find his range and landed a left hand that sent Dib down to the mat. The and speed of Khan, and his overall size, was too much for Dib to deal with.
Dib was game, taking a lot of punishment in the third and doing his best to fight back – but not being able to do much of anything.
During the fourth, Khan battered Dib with a variety of punches to send him down for a second time and this time Dib’s corner threw in the towel.
Khan said: “I felt very comfortable in there.
“Obviously having a new trainer, Bones Adams we had to work on a strategy, I slowed myself down a little bit instead of rushing all the time.
“I was seeing everything, making sure I was putting in the right shots, I felt very comfortable in there.
“Look, we want the Pacquiao fight, let’s hope he comes to Saudi Arabia.
“Hopefully we come back again at the end of the year and bring Manny Pacquiao here.”
