Will Amir Khan get past Vargas and look at biggest challenges? Could he build on his 39-second knockout of Phil Lo Greco in April? The excitement is rising up, as online sportsbook sites in UK suggest this fight will be among the biggest ones in welterweight division of 2018. Shortly after the official announcement of the fight to take place at Arena Birmingham on Sept 08, Amir Khan vs Samuel Vargas betting odds are available at Bet365 Sportsbook, with Khan expected to dominate at his home ground.
Amir Khan Returns Big
The 31-year-old former unified world champion needed just 39 seconds to stop Phil Lo Greco in April after nearly two years out of action. It took him a long time to recover from his sixth-round KO loss to Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in Las Vegas in May 2016. Thus in his first action after return he proved to be solid and determined to knock down big names. Would he enter the fight against Vargas with complete destruction as he did with Canada’s Phil Lo Greco?
Amir Khan vs Samuel Vargas Betting Odds
Online sportsbooks in UK expect the 29-year-old Colombian welterweight to be a tougher test to Amir Khan than Phil Lo Greco. Samuel Vargas is already ranked as number 10 by the WBA. He is a strong and well-schooled fighter, who has shared the ring with some top welterweights including Danny Garcia and Errol Spence Jr. Vargas has a record of 29 wins, three losses and two draws, having most recently been seen in a majority draw with Mauro Maximiliano Godoy in June.
However, Vargas never fought in UK in his pro career, and this will be his first fight in Birmingham against a very popular fighter who only lost once in UK and it was in Manchester. Amir Khan will be backed by his own people, so we expect him to enter the ring with full confidence. If you wish to place a good wager, Amir Khan vs Samuel Vargas betting odds are (1.050) for Khan and (9.00) for Vargas at Bet365 Sportsbook. Pick your winner who could later on be in frame for a fight against Kell Brook, Terence Crawford, Errol Spence, Danny Garcia, Shawn Porter and Keith Thurman.
