Khan he do it?
Amir Khan is desperate to prove he is future world champion material, despite being knocked out in the first round against the unknown Breidis Prescott.
Khan's professional career was derailed in the most emphatic fashion in September as Prescott floored the Bolton native after just 54 seconds, throwing doubt on to whether his chin can stand up against big hitters.
Now, Khan makes his return to the ring against Dublin journeyman Oisin Fagan with the benefit of spending the past few months with Manny Pacquiao's trainer Freddie Roach in Hollywood.
Fagan looks sure to test Khan to the full, having taken IBF lightweight champion Paul Spadafora all the way last year and more than half of his victories have been by KO.
The 1/12 about Khan to win looks extremely short given his last performance, so the value bet is on Oisin Fagan at 6/1, all will depend on Khan's chin.
If Khan does win as expected there could be great value through the round betting, in particular the 5/1 about a points victory. Fagan has only been stopped once in his career while Khan is not the biggest hitter in the weight division.
The price on Fagan to repeat Breidis Prescott's first round KO is 40/1 - surely lightning can't strike twice though.
It really is make or break time for Amir Khan, so how does he match-up against his next opponent?
