Amir Khan & Billy Dib talk to us about the BIG FIGHT!

British Amir Khan goes head to head against Australian Billy Dib for the WBC International welterweight title. Both are two-time world champions. Khan had been expected to fight India’s Neeraj Goyat, but the Asian welterweight champion had to withdraw last week after he sustained serious head injuries in a car accident in June. 

Amir said, "This fight is a landmark moment for boxing in Saudi Arabia and myself, Bill, the Saudi GSA and the government have worked tirelessly to put this event together. We wanted to keep the event on during the important Saudi Season [Jeddah Season Festival] and ensure the fans in Saudi get to watch this great event." 

The fight will be broadcast live on KSA Sports and MBC Action.
