Classy Canelo Destroys Khan!

The fight replicated the first time that Khan started as a rank underdog with the bookmakers’, with odds of up to 4/1 available on a Khan victory. Unfortunately for the two-time world champion, the bookies were right.

As the sixth started, Khan’s strong start had been eradicated, and a faint with the left opened Khan’s defence up to allow Canelo to deliver a huge overhand right onto the jaw of the Briton, dropping the challenger straight to the canvas and leading to referee Kenny Bayliss waving the fight off immediately.

Canelo refused to celebrate, instead rushing to Khan’s side as medics flooded the ring. Khan didn’t move an inch for a number of seconds, and nearly a full minute had passed before Khan was sat up and, thankfully, got to his feet to allow Canelo to enjoy the celebrations of his deserving victory.
