Khan though, responded in the best of ways after a minute interlude, dropping Vargas once more with a right.This time, he followed up with more caution as the Colombian went into recovery mode.

But after picking himself up off the canvas to beat Samuel Vargas on Saturday night in Birmingham, 31-year-old welterweight Khan said: "My message to Manny is not to price himself out". Thrilling, exciting, but always vulnerable.

After the bout, Khan called out Manny Pacquiao and Kell Brook.

Khan has expressed to have a fight with Manny Pacquiao.

And little tangible progress, it seems, has been made towards the domestic super-fight that is Brook v Khan.

The tough South American was then suddenly on the floor in the second, a vicious right flattening him as Khan's whirlwind comeback looked set to continue in devastating fashion.

The Bolton welterweight, in his second fight since returning to the ring after a two-year absence, was knocked to the floor in the final seconds of the second round. Although Vargas tried to capitalize on Khan's momentary defensive lapses, Khan still proved too much for him.

Things Chelsea Coach , Maurizio Sarri, Had To Say
Chelsea legend Terry was heavily linked with a move to Spartak Moscow , even undergoing a medical with the club. Terry left Stamford Bridge after 22 years' service in June 2017.

Talking about his future plans, he said: "The only fight that works for me over Kell Brook is Manny Pacquiao".

In the fifth, the Briton came close to stopping Vargas after landing a sustained attack of clubbing hooks which left Vargas' face streaked in blood.

Hearn has got Cardiff's Principality Stadium provisionally booked for December 1 and 8 but now wants to stage Khan's next fight on December 15 or 22.

Khan far from dominated the seventh, and he was not so energized in the eighth round, carefully pacing himself and launching fewer attacks than he did in the earlier rounds.

But incredibly, with the fight seemingly under control, Vargas delivered on his pre-bout promise that he would find the former world champion's fragile chin, landing a right hand to send Khan crashing down.

From there, Khan used his jab and quick combinations on the inside to outbox Vargas, who was bleeding heavily from the nose. "Winning one more will be wonderful for my career", he added.
