Amir Khan landed back in Manchester after his weekends fight with Marcos Maidana in Las Vegas to a heros welcome from family, friends and fans, after successfully defended his WBA light-welterweight title against the fearsome puncher in the second defense of his belt, winning by a unanamos points decision.
In possibly the best fight of 2010, Khan dropped Maidana in the first round with a sweet left hook to the body, which dropped the Argentinian challenger to the canvas. But the tough Maidana was to rise gallently and go on to last the distance, taking Khan into waters, deeper than he had been in before, but the Bolton lad swam the full lenght
Khan wearing sun glasses to cover up his eye damage received in the fight, stopped to have pictures taken in Manchester Airport arrival loungue with fans, and was interviewed regarding his view on the talk of him possibly fighting pound for pound king of the ring Floyd Mayweather jnr.
I think that fight could be made, end of the day if I keep on training hard and keep on winning, I think it’s a fight in the future, I want to fight the best out there. said Khan.
