Colombian boxer Samuel Vargas has threatened to end former World Champion Amir Khan’s carrier on Saturday.
The Bolton fighter takes on Colombian-born Samuel Vargas in Birmingham as he eyes up a December dust-up against Manny Pacquiao or Kell Brook.
“When I was told about this fight and asked if I wanted it, I said ‘hell yeah, send me the contract,” said rank outsider Vargas.
“Why did I take it? It’s simply because I know I can beat him.
“He has been a great champion, he has been in some great fights but his time has passed.
“This is my time now. It is time for me to put an end to his career and make a name for myself.
“This guy has been knocked out three times, it shows he can go down and it is something I can do.
“I know on Saturday night I will be the villain, the crowd will be booing me but it is just another day for me. They might boo me but in the end I will win so I don’t care if they hate me.”
Khan is expected to easily beat Vargas, who has lost three and drawn two of his 34 fights, to secure a huge money-spinning fight in December.
