Amir Khan collected a lucrative £7m pay package for his performance against Billy Dib in Saudi Arabia.

Khan floored Dib in the second round with a ferocious left hook at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah.

Khan reportedly earned $12 million for making light work of Dib in the Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah, and paid credit to the fearless Aussie.

A victory over Dib may lead to a potential mega showdown with superstar Manny Pacquiao, who takes on rival Keith Thurman next week in Las Vegas, that could take place later this year back in Saudi Arabia. The fight was pretty much one sided in Khan's favor and in the fourth round, Khan unleashed a flurry of fast punches that sent Dib down to the canvas.

But Khan's fight lasted approximately 9:51 seconds, which earned him around £11,844 per second.

"I want to thank Billy and his team for taking this fight on such short notice", Khan said after the win.

Khan reunited with strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza for this fight and hired new trainer former world champion Bones Adams.

It was an explosive display by Khan, who was looking to bounce back from his controversial defeat by WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford in April, which saw him accused of "quitting" after his corner pulled him out following a low blow from the American in the sixth round.

Khan came out strong and fast, utilising the hand speed we're so accustomed to seeing throughout the years. "I'm sure once they see it and feel the excitement, it will give them a big appetite for it so they can't wait to see the next show", he added.

"We had to work on a strategy, I slowed myself down a little bit instead of rushing all the time".
