Make or break for Khan

Amir Khan faces one of the most important nights of his career as he prepares to fight Carlos Molina in Los Angeles tonight.

After two straight defeats, Khan needs a convincing win to give himself chance of a shot at regaining his two world titles.

Both fighters weighed in at 9 stone 13 and three quarter pounds for the fight at the LA Memorial Sports Arena.

"This year has probably been the worst of my life, losing my WBA world title, having those two defeats and things that happened," said Khan.

"It's just about regrouping and redeeming myself."
