An excellent night for the golden boy of British boxing. Amir Khan wins the World Boxing Association light-welterweight title in his much-anticipated and highly-promoted bout with Germany-based Ukrainian Andreas Kotelnik. The 22-year-old Khan's dramatic victory at Manchester's M.E.N. Arena comes five years after an Olympic silver medal ... and 10 months after he was knocked out by Colombian Breidis Prescott in the same ring in only 54 seconds. That was Khan's only loss to date.
For many fans, especially of the homosex variety, the real action was at the weigh-in. Amir Khan comfortably made weight and stripped down to a snug and slightly bulging pair of boxer briefs. (Not quite as "fit" as other greay boxer briefs.) That's much more than Khan wore when he was forced to strip nude to make weight in his December 2008 bout with Oisin Fagan.
