Khan knocked out in fourth round by Garcia
LAS VEGAS: American Danny Garcia knocked out Britain’s Amir Khan in the fourth round to add the WBA light-welterweight crown to his WBC super-lightweight title in Las Vegas on Saturday.
Khan, 26-3 (18 KOs), looked the superior fighter early on, showing vastly superior hand speed as he landed right hands behind a long jab and opened up a cut on Garcia’s eye with a left hook.
The Briton struggled to his feet, but was on shaky legs as the bell rang. — Reuters
