Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Tonight at 11 p.m. EDT on HBO, Amir Khan defends his newly-returned WBA junior welterweight title against the WBC belt held by Danny Garcia. Sky Sports will start their live coverage in the UK at 9 p.m. EDT.

Khan (26-2, 18 KO) is coming off of a loss to Lamont Peterson in December, which was controversial then and even more so now, after Peterson failed a VADA drug test for what was scheduled to be a May 19 rematch. When Peterson fell out, Garcia (23-0, 14 KO) came into play, and presents a potentially tough challenge for the talented but vulnerable British star.

We'll have live, round-by-round coverage tonight. Tom Craze looked at the fight from the betting perspective on Friday, and I took a gander at the undercard of the main event bout earlier this week, which features Fernando Guerrero, J'Leon Love, Jamie Kavanagh, and Phil Lo Greco.

Fight time: 11:00 p.m. EDT

Location: Mandalay Bay - Las Vegas, NV

TV channel: HBO (US) / Sky Sports (UK) - 9 p.m. EDT
