Barrera to face Khan!

Lightweight contender Amir Khan (19-1, 15 KOs) will fight Mexican legend and former multi-weight world champion Marco Antonio Barrera (64-6, 43 KOs) on March 14 it was confirmed by promoter Frank Warren today. No venue has been confirmed for the mouth-watering showdown, although Warren did say that it would take place in the UK with a normal UK start time. Khan will benefit from having the input of Freddie Roach, who helped guide Manny Pacquiao to two wins over Barrera. No television deal for the fight was announced.
