Amir Khan is back to winning ways

Amir Khan in action against Oisin Fagan

Amir Khan bounced back from defeat in his last fight with a two-round victory against Oisin Fagan.

Khan looked in top form, and earned the WBA international lightweight championship belt with his win.

It was Khan's 19th win in 20 fights, and a huge improvement on his last bout, when he was beaten by Breidis Prescott after just 54 seconds.

Khan has changed his trainer since that loss to Prescott, and the swap seems to have improved his boxing.

After the fight Khan said: "I knew where I went wrong against Breidis Prescott.

"My team told me to pace myself, not to go for the knockout, that it would come itself. That's what I did.

"I was a bit more nervous than normal but I was relaxed and chilled out. I know how good I am and I'm not going to make the same mistakes again."
