  1. Post update

    Ben Dirs' report from Las Vegas is up and rolling elsewhere on BBC Sport.

    One thing you can guarantee with Amir Khan is that it is never dull.

    The Briton mixes it with the best who will have him and taking this fight showed once again that he backs up his ambitious talk with risky match-making.

    See you next time.

  2. Post update

    Time to turn words into dates gentlemen.

    Golovkin v Alvarez is the fight the middleweight division needs and it seems likely to happen in November.

    Nigel Lucas: Respect to Khan for stepping up for this fight ... Amir, you are a legend ... Great fighters always take the big fights. Welterweight should bring him the glory he deserves.

  4. 'Khan loses no status'

    Paulie Malignaggi

    Former welterweight world champion, speaking on BBC Radio 5 live

    “He loses no status or credibility. He took all the risk and he did better than many thought he would. Certainly better than I thought.

    "He did better than many fully-fledged middleweights have done against Canelo.”

  5. Post update

    I think Kell Brook might be kept waiting a little longer for his long-awaited meeting with Khan.

  6. Canelo wins by KO

    That's the thing though isn't it?

    It only takes one punch to decide a fight and undo whatever work came before it.

    Shohidur Rahman: No embarrassment for Khan. Fighting a bigger and stronger guy like Canelo was too much.

    Chris Gillett: top boxing Amir. But moving up 2 weights to fight a solid middleweight I think boxing needs to look at the safety factor.  

  8. 'Amir was boxing beautiful'

    Paulie Malignaggi

    Former welterweight world champion, speaking on BBC Radio 5 live

    “Amir was boxing beautiful. A very cerebral fight from him. 

    "Canelo knew he was getting scored on and it was a beautiful performance from him up until that point. It was a shame that punch came.”

  9. Post update

    Amir Khan: "This is boxing. I wanted to go out there as a champion. I unfortunately didn't make it to the end but I tried my best.

    "This challenge came and it was hard to turn down. I want to be the best."

  10. Canelo wins by KO

    Alvarez v Khan

    Saul Alvarez tells the in-ring interviewer that he wants undefeated Gennady Golovkin next, adding that he is ready to pull on the gloves on right now. 

    Over to Amir Khan...

    Jordan Winter: Did not see that coming! Devastating power!   

  12. 'Sensational one punch KO'

    Paulie Malignaggi

    Former welterweight world champion, speaking on BBC Radio 5 live

    “One of the knockouts of the year. A sensational one punch knockout. 

    "You almost feel bad for Amir though as he was making you wonder how Canelo was going to break him down.” 

  13. Canelo wins by KO

    Alvarez v Khan

    Massive respect for Saul Alvarez who after landing that huge knockout punch immediately went over to check that a prostrate Amir Khan was OK.

    Khan tells trainer Virgil Hunter that he is alright.

    He looks emotional though as his father and family console him.

  14. 'Out before he hit the canvas'

    Paulie Malignaggi

    Former welterweight world champion, speaking on BBC Radio 5 live

    “Canelo got underneath Amir Khan’s jab and then he extended his overhand right. Khan was out before he hit the canvas.”

  15. Canelo wins by KO

    Alvarez v Khan

    A huge overhead right hand ends the contest in an instant.

    Khan is laid flat on the canvas and the referee waves off the fight.

    It was a savage punch that Khan never saw coming.

    Khan is up on his feet.

    Canelo and Amir Khan
  16. Round Six

    A heavy left hand from Canelo catches Amir Khan. Khan looks stunned for a milisecond before regaining his composure.

    But there is more of that from the Mexican. A pummeling jab snaps back Khan's head.

    Khan knocked down!

    Amir Khan and Canelo
  17. 'A close round'

    Paulie Malignaggi

    Former welterweight world champion, speaking on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Another close round, I give this one 10-10. Canelo landed some good shots, as did Khan.

    "Not a lot of boxing in that round and it may have been a breather round for Khan, as he seeks to continue to frustrate Canelo."

  18. Round Five

    Alvarez v Khan

    Is this Canelo reeling Amir Khan in?

    The Mexican ships another couple of shots in the early part of the round, but he looks a little more cautious in his approach and has more success getting close.

    A reaching right hook glances Khan and opens up a cut over the top of Khan's right eye. That was the Mexican's best round so far and there is some serious patch-up work for Khan's corner to do.

  19. 'Khan needs to keep it up'

    Paulie Malignaggi

    Former welterweight world champion, speaking on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Canelo is still losing his position to Khan’s jab which means he has to start all over again when it comes to finding a position to apply pressure. 

    "Khan needs to keep up his good work with the jab.”

    FPL coach: Like a game of chess, Khan's speed vs Canelo's power. Can Khan keep up the pace and energy?
