Title-chasing Adil Anwar says the success of close friend Amir Khan will act as a catalyst for his own pursuit of championships.

Anwar fights Lenny Daws on the undercard of the eagerly anticipated David Price v Sam Sexton heavyweight match-up at Aintree Racecourse on May 19.

The bout is for the vacant English light-welterweight crown and is a final eliminator for the British belt – which will be contested on the same show, between defending champion Ashley Theophane and challenger Steve Williams.

Anwar said: “Amir Khan is an inspiration to me and I also consider Amir a friend. I speak to Amir and on the night of the Prizefighter he telephoned to show his support.

“He is fighting at world-class level and it would be arrogant to put myself up there and say I am worthy to fight someone who has worked so hard and spent so much time developing his career to get into that position.

“But, in time, I intend on fighting at the same level.”
