Posted By: Staff

New York, Dec.6 (ANI): Brit Asian boxer Amir Khan conquest of America began with a sensational 76-second knockout victory over New York-based Jewish Dmitriy Salita.

Khan outclassed Salita thrice to retain his WBA light-welterweight title before referee Luis Pabon stopped the opening round slaughter, reports News of The World.

With the first punch of the fight, this contest was as good as over when a right cross exploded on Salita's chin that dumped him on the seat of his pants.

Within seconds Salita tasted the canvas for the second time when a relentless barrage of dynamite punches dropped him again.

Although Salita rose groggily, Pabon let him continue but Khan was in no mood to hang around and went for the jugular.

He finished the job with another classic left after his blinding hand speed drove Salita across the ring and to the floor forcing Pabon to step in. (ANI)
