How to watch Billy Dib vs Amir Khan boxing welterweight title fight online
Billy Dib comes out of retirement on July 13, 2019, to take on English champion Amir Khan for the WBC International Title. Here's how to watch Dib vs Khan fight live.
Boxing fans have plenty to look forward to this weekend, with Billy Dib (45-5, 26 KOs) coming out of retirement after only a few months to take on British superstar Amir Khan (33-5, 20 KOs) for the WBC International Welterweight Title in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Dib accepted the fight with very little notice, after India's Neeraj Goyat had to withdraw from the event. He sustained serious injuries in a car accident last month. As a result, Dib calls this his "Rocky moment," so there's going to be plenty of excitement to go around during the highly anticipated event. Both fighters are two-time world champions, and Dib had to go move up two weight classes to fight the elite welterweight.
"In life you get a limited number of opportunities to do something monumental, and like the greatest in any industry will tell you, when an opportunity comes knocking, you answer. This is my real life Rocky moment," Dib tweeted.
