ADIL ANWAR says he will be inspired to British light-welterweight title glory by Amir Khan.

 

The classy Leeds fighter (16-1) meets Lenny Daws (23-2-2) in a vacant English title and eliminator for Ashley Theophane’s British crown at Aintree Racecourse on Saturday May 19.

 

On the same bill being staged by Anwar’s new promoter Frank Maloney, Theophane (31-4-1) risks his British crown against local Steve Williams (12-1).

 

Maloney is determined to get Anwar to the top even if it involves fighting close pal, Amir,

Adil said: “Amir Khan is an inspiration to me and I also consider Amir a friend. I speak to Amir and on the night of the Prizefighter he telephoned to show his support.

 

“Never say never, but my targets for the near future don’t involve fighting Amir.  He is one of my heroes with alongside Muhammad Ali and Naseem Hamed.

 

“He is fighting at world class level and it would be arrogant to put myself up there and say I am worthy to fight someone who has worked so hard and spent so much time developing his career to get to that position.

 

“But ones thing for sure, in time I intend on fighting at the same level. For the meantime I’m quite happy with his support.”

 

The bill is topped by the world’s leading heavyweight prospect David Price (12-0) who faces Sam Sexton (15-2) for the vacant British and Commonwealth crowns.

 

Other fights include: John Donnelly (13-2) v Mike Robinson (5-4-3), English super-flyweight title), Paul Edwards (9-1) v Kevin Satchel (7-0)  vacant English flyweight title, Bob Ajisafe (9-2) v Travis Dickinson (12-0) English light-heavyweight crown.
