19. Khan vs. Dib on the dunes

Amir Khan sharing a ring with Billy Dib in July, in Saudi Arabia of all places, was as ridiculous as any fight made this year, yet was nearly topped for bizarreness by a chief support contest that night between Hughie Fury and Samuel Peter, which should have been aborted the moment the idea was conceived.

Khan defeated Dib, of course, and seems to have a new audience to exploit at a late stage in his career, but the Middle East experiment left all who had to sit through it feeling cold and confused.
