Khan-Maidana fight confirmed for Vegas

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (AFP) – Britain's Amir Khan will defend his World Boxing Association 140-pound world title on December 11 in Las Vegas, taking on Argentina's Marcos Maidana, Golden Boy Promotions confirmed Thursday.

Khan, who fashioned a stunning American debut when he stopped Paulie Malignaggi in the 11th round of a lopsided bout in New York in May, will fight in Vegas for the first time.

He agreed earlier this month to what could prove a tough encounter with Maidana, who has won four straight fights since dropping a split decision to Andreas Kotelnik last year.

Khan, who won Olympic silver in Athens, beat Kotelnik last year to claim the WBA light welterweight crown.
