Amir Khan will fight undefeated American Super Lightweight Danny Garcia on July 14 for the WBC title. The Briton's rematch against Lamont Peterson, scheduled for May 19, was called off.
"It's a good fight for me, Danny Garcia is unbeaten in 23 fights and has 14 knockouts so it will be a tough test for me," said the 25-year-old Khan, "it's a great match-up, the WBC title will be on the line which I'd love to win". Danny Garcia, 24, took the WBC title when he beat Erik Morales on points in his last fight in March.
