AMIR KHAN marked his first Arabian night with the expected victory and immediately looked ahead to an encounter with another boxing icon from this corner of the world.

The Bolton welterweight made easy work of little Billy Dib, a former world champion at 126lb, who had answered the call following a car crash involving India’s Neeraj Goyat.

Dib was only supposed to be boxing on the undercard at the King Abdullah Sports City but when Goyat was forced to withdraw from his scheduled clash with Khan as a result of injuries sustained in the accident, a new dance partner was required in the main event.
