Amir Khan is ready for Canelo

Amir Khan talks bulking up, speed vs. power and the blueprint for beating Canelo

It's the biggest fight of Amir Khan's life as he goes up against the WBC middleweight champion Saúl 'Canelo' Álvarez. Canelo is a big, strong brute of a fighter who brings power and pressure, and will likely weigh substantially more than Khan on fight night.

What's more, Khan is stepping up a couple of weight categories to take on Canelo, who has only been defeated once at the hands of Mayweather. He comes into this fight as an underdog, so how has Khan prepared for the seemingly impossible task?
