Amir Khan and Keith Thurman will be featured in back-to-back episodes of Showtime’s All Access Epilogue on Friday and Saturday, detailing the behind-the-scenes views of their recent welterweight victories in Las Vegas, the network announced on Monday.
The episode on Khan (30-3, 19 knockouts) will air immediately following Friday’s live broadcast of RING/WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson’s title defense against Dmitry Sukhotsky, and the episode on Thurman (24-0, 21 KOs) follows Saturday’s Showtime Extreme telecast of a THE RING’s No. 9-rated Jesus Cuellar against Ruben Tamayo.
Khan is coming off a near shutout unanimous decision over Devon Alexander on Saturday at MGM Grand.
Khan, who won by scores of 118-110, 119-109, and, 120-108, had an advantage in total punches (243-to-91), power shots (120-to-69) and jabs (123-to-22) against Alexander. He pocketed $950,000 for his triumph compared to $600,000 for Alexander, and may have increased the potential for realizing a fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in his future.
In the co-feature to Khan-Alexander, Thurman scored a first-round knockdown on the way to his complete shutout of Leonard Bundu (31-1-2, 11 KOs), defeating the 40-year-old veteran by 120-107 on all three judges’ cards and taking home $500,000 compared to $85,000 for his opponent.
