Boxing : Consecutive defeat for Amir Khan

Second consecutive defeat for British boxer Amir Khan he was stopped in round 4 by unbeaten American Danny Garcia in Las Vegas. Khan was knocked down three times as Garcia claims the WBA light-welterweight belt and held on to his WBC title. After a tough start, Khan was floored in the third by a counter and could not recover from shots in round 4.

“We got a little satisfied and he took advantage,” Khan said. “It wasn’t my night. After watching the replays a little bit I thought I was coming in with my hands down. “I respect Danny, he was countering very well against me.” It is the third defeat of Khan’s career and comes after his doubtful loss to Lamont Peterson where he was he was beaten in contentious circumstances last December with a rematch scrapped after the American tested optimistic for synthetic testosterone.

Following this severe loss the Bolton boxer was taken to hospital for a precautionary scan. And the defeat casts important doubt on his plans of moving up to the welterweight division to face the likes of Floyd Mayweather. “I was a little surprised the referee stopped,” Khan added. “I thought he was going to let us carry on.
