Haroon Khan vs Stefan Slavchev on Nov 15

BOLTON (Oct 31) – Hot prospect Haroon Khan (2-0, 1 KO) will step back into the ring in Blackpool on Friday November 15th against 20-year-old Bulgarian, Stefan Slavchev (3-8, 1 KO), as he continues his march towards the top.

The 2010 Commonwealth Games bronze medalist has made a blazing start to his professional career after making the leap into the paid ranks earlier this year, scoring a win over the tricky Brett Fidoe before knocking out Vincente Medellin in a sensational performance in Atlantic City.

As the younger brother of former unified world champion, Amir Khan, the talented super-flyweight possesses much of the same skill set, including his quick hands and thrilling combinations.

He now goes into battle in his third fight against a well schooled opponent in Slavchev, at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens, leading the lineup in a stacked card that features no less than fourteen exciting bouts.

”I’m very pleased that my opponent has now be confirmed,” said Haroon. “Now I can start working on some specific things with my trainer Oliver Harrison in order to prepare for him. I know Stefan will be coming to get the win so I’ll need to be at my sharpest and make sure I’m ready. Training has gone great and I can see the improvements I’m making all the time in the gym. I can’t wait for November 15th because I’m ready to put on a great performance.”
