December 1, 2014

Broadcasting rights have been snapped up in the UK and Germany for the welterweight boxing match in Las Vegas between Briton Amir Khan and America’s Devon Alexander of the US on December 13.

The bout will be shown on Sky Sports in the UK and on the DMAX channel in Germany.

Khan said: “It’s great to be back on Sky Sports once again for what is one of the biggest fights of my career so far against Alexander. I have had a great training camp and have no doubts it’s going to be a very special night for me on December 13th, therapy headlining at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

“I look forward to putting on a spectacular performance for everyone tuning in on the night, against a very tricky and respected opponent in Alexander. I can’t wait to step in the ring again and am raring to go.” 

Adam Smith, executive producer of Sky Sports boxing, said: “This is a great fight, and fabulous night of action from Las Vegas. Boxing fans are in for a momentous week with all the build up and live action on Sky Sports.

”It’s a vital fight for Amir and for British boxing, with both fighters desperate for the chance that could come their way in 2015. It really is winner takes all in Las Vegas.”

The winner of the fight could potentially land a fight with the undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. or Manny Pacquiao.
