Bolton favourite Khan's lengthy absence saw the former unified light-welterweight world champion become almost as well known as a 'Get Me Out of Here' celebrity than top-rated fighter.

But the 31-year-old is working his way towards another big-name bout and expects a much tougher test against the Canada-based Vargas, who is ranked No 10 by the WBA.

Vargas, 29, is saying all the right things in insisting that Khan should forget about another early victory.

He has warned the UK favourite he'll "give him hell" and to prepare for a punishing battle.
