Amir Khan returns to the ring to take on Billy Dib in Saudi Arabia tonight.
Khan was originally scheduled to meet Neeraj Goyat in Jeddah in a bout billed as ‘Pakistan versus India’, with the WBC even introducing it’s one-off Pearl Welterweight Championship for the contest.
Goyat was forced to pull out however after suffering serious injuries in a car accident in June.
32-year-old Dib was subsequently drafted in as a late replacement – moving up in weight to take on Khan who is looking for an emphatic victory after his defeat to Terence Crawford in April.
Date, UK start time and venue
Khan vs Dib takes place on Friday July 12 at King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Ringwalks for the main event are expected around 10pm BST with undercard coverage beginning at 9pm.
