Amir Khan has no qualms about the fact that his world light-welterweight title bout with Danny Garcia this weekend could be overshadowed by another fight.
Heavyweight David Haye is taking on Dereck Chisora at West Ham United's Upton Park ground on Saturday in what is being seen as a grudge fight.
Boxing fans know my fight is a lot bigger because there's two world titles on the line.Amir Khan
Haye and Chisora were involved in a brawl at the press conference following the latter's WBC title loss to Vitali Klitschko in February.
However, Khan is looking forward to fighting for the WBC and WBA titles in Las Vegas and believes boxing fans know which is the more important event. Khan is 1.14 to win his fight while Garcia can be backed at 6.00.

"People know the difference, especially boxing fans, they know my fight is a lot bigger because there's two world titles on the line," Khan said. "David (Haye) is a good friend of mine but the fight is not as big a fight. There are no world titles on the line and I don't think Chisora is a top-10 (fighter) in the world.
"The guy I'm fighting, Danny Garcia, is a top-10 in the world so it makes it more fun to watch for the fans.
"At the end of the day, the Chisora fight against David, I think it's better for them to settle the score in the boxing ring than outside the boxing ring."
