Haroon Khan returns to the ring

Haroon Khan makes his third appearance as a professional this month.


The brother of former world champion Amir, who only turned professional earlier this year, will fight at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens on November 15.

Super-flyweight Haroon will be looking to continue where he left off in his initial two pro outings when he beat Brett Fidoe and Vicente Medellin in impressive fashion, the latter with a stunning knockout in Atlantic City in May.

He said: “I just can’t wait to get back in the ring. It’s seemed like a while since I was last out, so I’m raring to go.

“Over the past few months I’ve been training hard with Oliver Harrison and I’ve done some great work and had excellent sparring.
“This will only be my third fight as a professional but I feel myself growing and getting stronger.

There are no shortcuts in this sport so I will be getting in tip top shape in order to put on a great performance. I would like to thank Steve Woods for putting me on this great show.”

Woods of VIP Boxing Promotions, said: “We’ve put together a great show for November 15 in Blackpool which I’m very proud of. There’s a real mix of fighters amongst the card and everyone who attends or watches will no doubt see some truly excellent match-ups.

“It’s great to have Haroon fighting on the card and we expect there will be a large contingent from Bolton making their way across to Blackpool next month. This card will have it all from top to bottom and it will be a great night of boxing.”

Tickets are priced at £30 and £60 ringside and are available by contacting Saj Mohamed on 01204535332. The scheduled start time of the show is 7pm.
