Pakistan-origin British boxer Amir Khan knocked out Australia’s Billy Dib in the fourth round of the match at King Abdullah Sports City, Saudi Arabia on July 12.
Dib was a replacement of Neeraj Goyat, who had to compete against Khan for the WBC Pearl Title Championship, but the Indian fighter withdrew due to his car accident’s injuries.
The Australian boxer was unable to fight with Khan’s superior hand speed and strength. Dib could only manage to fight until 3 rounds. He was knocked out in the fourth round after volatile shots from Khan, and the towel was immediately thrown in, signalling that the Australian athlete could no further compete.
Soon after Khan’s victory, the boxer thanked everyone on his social media account.
“Fight 39. Thank you for all the support. Big thanks to my team @bones.adams.boxing @ArizaFitness1 and hector. @Superboxingleague for putting on a great show in Jeddah. Many more to come in Saudi Arabia. All the best @BillyDib hope u come back stronger. Who should I fight next?”
