Amir Khan (27-2, 19 KO) returned to his winning ways tonight in Los Angeles, totally outclassing and outboxing a game but overmatched Carlos Molina en route to a 10th round TKO victory.

From the opening seconds of the bout it was clear that Khan's blazing hand speed would be the difference in the fight. 

He utilized the ring better than in his previous fights, perhaps a contribution from new trainer Virgil Hunter, but left his chin exposed more than he'd have liked.

Molina did tag him with several good shots but Khan took them well and fought on. 

It's difficult to gauge how much improvement Khan made with his new trainer as Molina had little power and seemed completely out of his depth.

But a win is a win and it was a crucial one for Khan who could not have afforded a third straight defeat.
