Amir Khan’s fight in Saudi Arabia will be broadcast by Channel 5 in the UK. 

The Bolton star takes on India’s Neeraj Goyat in Jeddah on Friday, July 12, as he looks to come back from defeat to WBO World champion Terrence Crawford in April. 

The TV deal struck for the fight means Khan will be back on terrestrial television for the first time in nine years, having appeared on several satellite and pay-per-view outlets. 

The 32-year-old lost in bizarre fashion to Crawford in New York, pulled out by his corner after being hit with a low blow, and hopes victory over the unheralded Goyat can set up a another big fight – potentially against Manny Pacquiao in the Middle East state. 

Khan, who has won 33 of 38 fights, is of Pakistani heritage and takes on India’s Goyat in a fight billed as ‘Nations Connect’ with the WBC’s Pearl welterweight championship on the line.

Goyat, a former mixed martial arts fighter, has won 11 of 16 as a professional and will be taking a major step up in class when he faces Khan.  

The card will also feature Hughie Fury, who has trained at the Team Fury gym on Halliwell Road in Bolton, taking on former world champion Samuel Peter. 

The 24-year-old has 22 victories and two defeats on his record, one of those to Joseph Parker in a challenge for the WBO World heavyweight championship.
