Han confident for must-win fight Saturday night

Abie Han vs. Anthony Dirrell

El Paso's Abie Han said he will someday fight for a world title. But it won’t happen unless he wins his next fight.

Han faces former super middleweight champion Anthony Dirrell Saturday night at the Don Haskins Center.

It’s a fight that will make or break his career, but he loves having the home field advantage.

"I'll have a chance to fight in my hometown, make that world championship become a reality and follow in my sister's footsteps," Han said during Friday’s weigh-in.

Han is 26-3-1 with 16 knockouts. Dirrell is 31-1-1 with 24 via the knockout.

The fight will be nationally televised on KFOX14. Coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. Saturday.
