His last bout was a 39-second demolition of the Canadian Phil Lo Greco in April.

Although it seemed pretty decisive towards the end of the fight, Vargas managed to sneak a hard right hand that stunned Khan right before the conclusion of the 11th round.

"He (Vargas) caught me with an overhand right hand, right on the button, I got back up and I was fine".

Khan locks horns with Samuel Vargas in Birmingham tonight.

Hearn will meet Khan, Brook and Pacquiao's handlers in the next fortnight, disclosing that he may even attempt to purvey a two-fight deal with Pacquiao, the eight-weight world champion and serving senator in the Philippines.

"I never want to be in the position when I do call it a day that I regret what I could have done or what I could have achieved". We will listen to the public, we know Amir wants Pacquiao and he will fight Brook. In a wild round two, Khan dropped Vargas and had it all going his way when suddenly Vargas floored Khan with a big right hand just before the bell.

The company also announced a bunch of other things, including a new Bixby-powered smart speaker . That'll be the same way Samsung announced the Galaxy Tab S4 tablet last month.

Hearn has got Cardiff's Principality Stadium provisionally booked for December 1 and 8 but now wants to stage Khan's next fight on December 15 or 22.

From there, with new trainer Joe Goossen looking to refine the early mistakes, Khan began to show his world class boxing skills as he beautifully circled his man and sprung into life with electrifying pace in the succeeding rounds.

From there, Khan used his jab and quick combinations on the inside to outbox Vargas, who was bleeding heavily from the nose. He also wants one more fight before the end of the year, preferably against Pacquiao.

"There were times in the fight when I wanted to put him away, there were times when I could have pushed it and knocked him out", he added.

But Khan's work rate dipped in the tenth, allowing Vargas to land more punches and finished the round by landing a solid right hook on Khan's chin which turned his legs to jelly.

Asked if he could have beaten Brook on the night, Khan said: "One hundred per cent".
