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.
â€œWe got a little satisfied and he took advantage,â€ Khan said. â€œIt wasnâ€™t my night. After watching the replays a little bit I thought I was coming in with my hands down. â€œI respect Danny, he was countering very well against me.â€ It is the third defeat of Khanâ€™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. â€œI was a little surprised the referee stopped,â€ Khan added. â€œI thought he was going to let us carry on.
