New date for Kotelnik-Khan!

WBA super lightweight Andreas Kotelnik’s world title defense against Amir Khan’s will now take place at the Manchester Evening News (MEN) Arena on July 18.The bout was originally scheduled to take place in London on June 27, but because Kotelnik suffered a minor injury and tooth infection the bout had to be postponed. The postponement means the London’s O2 Arena cannot stage the big fight. Michael Jackson has the O2 Arena that night and is performing. However, the M.E.N Arena, host to so many big UK fights nights in the past, have come to Khan’s rescue and have rearranged things to host Khan’s first world title challenge at the scene of his fifth round victory over Mexican legend, Marco Antonio Barrera in March. Fans who have purchased tickets for the fight at the O2 Arena are asked to return them to their point of purchase only in order to exchange them for identical tickets for the new date at the MEN Arena or receive a full refund.
