Lee Meager: I Khan do it quicker

Former British Lightweight Champion Lee Meager is out to do a better job on Laszlo Komjathi on September 7 than Amir Khan managed to do last year. Meager returns to action next week for the first time since he was out-pointed by fellow Hennessy Sports boxer Jon Thaxton for the domestic title in December..

The London-based Salford slugger boxes the Hungarian over ten rounds in an international contest that is part of a supporting bill to the main event of Junior Witter versus Vivian Harris for the WBC Light-Welterweight Title at the The Dome at Doncaster Lakeside.

Sky Sports televise the Hennessy Sports show which also features the inaugural English Super-Flyweight Title fight between Robert Nelson and Andy Bell in an all-Yorkshire encounter.

Meager is aiming to earn a crack at European Lightweight Champion Yuri Romanov, the Belarusian who has been victorious on three occasions against British boxers, and sees Komjathi as ideal preparation.

"He took Khan six rounds and is a tough customer, so this is a good fight for me to return after being out for a few months," said Lee.

"He's a typical east European fighter and I'm hoping to go one better than what Khan managed by stopping him inside the distance.

"This is good practise for me against an east European fighter because I want to fight Romanov at some point soon. I'm ready for this. I've been in the gym since May after it took a while to get over the loss."

Promoter Mick Hennessy is confident Meager will be crowned a champion again.

"I have high hopes for Lee, who could challenge for the European Title later this year or in 2008," said Mick.

"Komjathi took Amir Khan to points after six rounds last year and most people thought if the fight had gone on any longer, Komjathi was definitely going to get on top. He has been in with tough opponents and is a good test for Lee."
