The Bolton youngster looked calm and assured in the ring last Friday night at Blackpool's Winter Gardens as he patiently broke down his 20-year-old compatriot who had no answers to the succession of quick flurries and powerful right hands that kept landing throughout.

The 2010 Commonwealth Games bronze medalist will return to the ring on December 14 after moving to a record of 3-0 following his latest victory.

The 22-year-old, younger brother of former unified light-welterweight world champion Amir Khan, continues to show that he has inherited the same exciting boxing genes as his older sibling.

"I'm pleased with how I did against Stefan Slavchev but now I'm looking to the future and December 14," said Khan.

"It was great to get another win under my belt and I'm aiming for a similar performance in Wigan next month. My team are looking to move me at a good pace and the level of competition is going to keep getting better as I progress but I'm ready for that challenge.

"It was good to have Amir ringside for my last fight - that gave me a big boost. His insight, along with Oliver Harrison and his team gives me a solid foundation to really push on over the coming months."
