Amir beats Samuel on unanimous points

Amir Khan left was taken the distance by Samuel Vargas
Amir Khan was given a scare by Samuel Vargas before a unanimous points win in Birmingham on Saturday as his world title bid credentials were questioned.
Khan can't see the end coming any time soon and returned from a two-year absence in April to beat Phil Lo Greco in 39 seconds as he doesn't want to turn the last page with regrets about what he could have achieved.
Colombian-born Vargas, 29, had already been put down himself when he stunned Khan and the capacity crowd.
The pace finally settled down as the fight entered the championship rounds with Khan continuing to be in control for the most part but still looking vulnerable to the overhand right which gave a bloodied Vargas some hope.
The Bolton fighter told Starsport last week that he favours a fight with ring legend Pacquiao over British rival Brook. I wanted to get the experience.
"There was a couple of times I could've finished it but stepped off [Vargas]", he said. Khan staggered backward but was saved by the bell once again. Vargas somehow kept his feet under a series of blows, but Khan appeared to tire and the fight became a slog, with neither man willing to go for broke.
Amir Khan hit the deck in Birmingham
Vargas promised to test Khan's chin, and that he did in the second round when he sent his opponent crashing to the canvas.
Luckily for Khan, he was able to get his legs back underneath him again and listened to the advice of new head trainer Joe Goossen, who urged him to "calm down". Although Khan showed heart, there was little on show to concern Brook.
Khan, however, seems to prefer a more internationally-appealing scrap with Pacquiao, who he trained with under Freddie Roach.
"If the fight happens between us I know it will be big". I needed this kind of fight badly and I needed those 12 rounds. He also wants one more fight before the end of the year, preferably against Pacquiao. Beating someone like Pacquiao, beating someone like Brook, people will forget about those defeats.
"It's now or never for the Kell Brook fight", Hearn said.

Storm Helene to bring wet and windy weather to Ireland
With Florence expected to be farther north at landfall, we will have no impacts from this storm locally other than large waves. Many areas in the low-lying city flood with routine rain storms, causing street closures and detours.
