Amir Khan accuses broadcasters of lacking support
April 13th, 2011 by Warren Moore
Amir Khan has hit back in the row over the broadcasting of Saturdays WBA light-welterweight bout against Paul McCloskey, accusing British broadcasters of lacking support.
The fight, which was originally billed to be shown on Sky Box Office, will now be broadcast by small time pay-per-view channel Primetime.
Kahn said: “Sky were at first showing their support and then all of a sudden things went downhill and they pulled out of the fight.
“I really thought this would have been a massive fight, especially after I had a great fight last year and won the best fight of the year, but it’s one of those things.”
Amir Khan v Paul McCloskey tickets are available now.
