Amir Khan posted the quickest victory of his pro career when he knocked out Vitali Martynov after 75 seconds to win his fifth lightweight contest. Rated the best boxing prospect in Britain since Lennox Lewis, Khan fired a straight right through the guard of the 22-year-old Belorussian, who had won 10 of his previous 11 fights, seven by knockout. Although Martynov got to his feet, referee Terry O'Connor waved an end to the scheduled six-rounder, as Athens Olympic silver medalist Khan took another step toward what he hopes will be a world title.
