Khan/Kristjansen: The Vikings Are Coming

Martin Kristjansen has promised a performance worthy of a Viking warrior when he tackles Amir Khan in Bolton on Saturday night. The fight will be screened live on ITV1 at 9.15 - and Kristjansen says he will become a star by defeating his 21-year-old opponent in front of a prime time audience..

The fight is a WBO world title eliminator, with both Khan and Kristjansen ranked in the governing body's top five.

The WBO Intercontinental Lightweight Title will be on the line at the Bolton Arena.

" Believe me, the Vikings are coming," said the Dane during a media workout today, during which he looked sharp and focussed.

" My friend Mikkel Kessler lost to Joe Calzaghe in November, but I'll be making up for that when I defeat Khan.

" Amir Khan is the golden boy of British boxing but I'm going to put a dent in his world title hopes on Saturday night.
" I'm fighting for the whole of my country and I believe I'll expose Khan.
" I've never felt so confident ahead of a fight. Training has gone really well, and I'm in great shape.

" I'm desperate to become a world champion, and I'm going to take a massive step towards that on Saturday."
