Amir Khan takes out eight candles with one swift punch (video)

In his recent photo shoot with new partners RDX Sports, former world champion Amir Khan showed just how fast his hands can be in taking on a candle challenge.

After initially taking out three lined-up candles bare-handed, Khan then whipped on his gloves to imrpressively gain enough momentum from his blow to take out a full eight.

The 27 year-old is recognised as one of the fastest combination punchers in the business and recently proved too much for New Yorker Luis Collazo when defeating him on May 3.

Khan is currently on the lookout for his next opponent, although targets Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are  off the table having agreed to fight Marcos Maidana and Chris Algieri respectively.
