JEDDAH: With a lightening barrage of punches and a left hook as finale Brand Ambassador Amir Khan had floored Australian Billy Dip here at King Abdullah Sports City last night to claim WBC international welterweight title and seven million British Pound Sterling. 

Amir Khan was furious because he wanted to bounce back from his defeat by WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford in April. 

It is pertinent to mention here that Khan was scheduled to fight Neeraj Goyat but he withdrew being injured in a car crash.

Then Dib took the fight in June. Commenting on the fight he said it was his real-life Rocky moment but he was unable to cope with Khan’s speed and power.

After the fight, Khan said he wanted to face former four-weight world champion Manny Pacquiao next.
