Amir beats Australian Dib to claim WBC welterweight title

Amir's dream of a bout in Saudi Arabia to come true on Friday

Amir Khan needed just four rounds to claim the WBC worldwide welterweight title in Saudi Arabia last night.

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

Khan showed great confidence and his blistering hand speed to claim the thirty-fourth victory of his career, against a late notice opponent in Australian Dib who had campaigned two weight divisions below the two-time world champion when he was at his best. A few more back-to-back punches in the third and a double left hook from the British-Pakistani boxer in the fourth forced Dib back down to the canvas, prompting a fourth-round stoppage.

"I felt very comfortable in there, I could see I had the strength, power and movement right early in the bout".

Germany-based defender Collins said he expects a hard game against Algeria , who are unbeaten at this year's AFCON . We have a lot of strikers (7), we cannot play all the strikers.

He told talkSPORT: "We want the Manny Pacquiao fight, let's hope he comes to Saudi Arabia". Whenever I fight I always make it exciting, I always make it very interesting.

Khan arrived in Saudi Arabia on a mission to make a massive statement in his Middle East debut which would lure the eight-time world champion Pacquiao into a fight with him in the desert.

It was his first fight back since defeat to Terence Crawford in April, and sets him up for another big clash later this year with names such as Manny Pacquiao and Kell Brook touted. I slowed down a little bit instead of rushing all the time, I was seeing everything.

Khan will now watch Pacquiao take on Keith Thurman next weekend in Las Vegas, knowing he has kept up his side of the bargain in their potential deal.
