Haroon Khan emphatically wins third pro bout
British/Pakistani super-flyweight Haroon Khan has moved his record on to 3-0 in the early stages of his professional career with a dominant four round win over Bulgarian also-ran Stefan Slavchev in Blackpool on Friday night.
The 22 year-old, who won the bronze medal for Pakistan as an amateur at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, had no problems taking every round of the Winter Gardens bout, putting to an end a six-month absence from the ring.
Khan is much-lauded as a future star in the lower weight divisions domestically, and could soon be in the mix for higher-profile UK clashes with the likes of Paul ‘Baby-faced Assasin’ Butler and Kal Yafai barring agreements from their respective promoters.
Living in the shadow of elder brother and former light-welterweight world champion Amir Khan is seemingly water of a ducks back for Haroon, who has breezed through the early stages of his career like a seasoned campaigner.
This latest fight will probably spell the end of Khan’s first twelve months in the paid ranks with it being November, although 2014 is expected to be a big year for ‘Harry’ as the Bolton fighter steps up his opposition accordingly.
