Cameroon-native Sokoudjou (18-8-0, M-1: 0-1-0), fighting out of the United States, was nailed on the chin by a straight right thrown by Kharitonov (25-6-0, M-1: 4-0-0), who immediately jumped on top of his fallen foe, firing two more powerful hammer-punches to the head, until the referee halted the action.

WORLD BOXING CHAMPION AMIR KHAN ENTERS THE MMA BUSINESS AS NEW CO-OWNER OF SUPER FIGHT LEAGUE

LOS ANGELES, CALIF. (August 10, 2015) – Decorated world boxing champion Amir Khan has stepped into the Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) business as a new owner and promoter of world championship MMA sports franchise Super Fight League.

Khan, a former, two-time world champion, will join a new, blue-chip ownership and management team dedicated to expanding the former India-based Super Fight League’s footprint in The U.S., beginning with a television distribution agreement that the company expects to announce soon.

“I am extremely excited about this new venture and chapter in my career that will allow me to utilize my experience and relationships in the fight world to further the mission of, what I believe, is a company that has tremendous growth potential in the MMA and sports entertainment space,” said Khan, who will also continue his career in boxing where he has won his last five bouts, and holds an outstanding career record of 31-3, with 19 of his victories having come by way of (T)KO.

Joining Khan at the helm of the franchise is new Super Fight League CEO and business tycoon Bill Dosanjh; digital media executive George Chung, whose expertise lies in international (Europe, Asia, Latin America, India and The Middle East) content aggregation and monetization; and Brian Halquist a Seattle, Wash.-based veteran promoter of over 140 live combat sports events who, among other feats, was a partner in the “STRIKEFORCE at the Dome” fight card that set a new record for live gate receipts for a combat sports event in the state of Washington on Feb. 23, 2008.

Super Fight League was founded in 2012 and has since produced 41 live events, including 5 in the U.S, and generated dozens of millions of views of its video content through a strategic, digital partnership with YouTube.

The promotion has been a home to a number of MMA champions and other superstars, including Olympic Judo medalist Satoshi Ishii, Trevor Prangley, Todd Duffee, Jeff Monson and Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou.  The next Super Fight League live event in the U.S. will be announced soon.
