Amir Khan retained his WBA light-welterweight title in stunning fashion Saturday, knocking down unbeaten American challenger Dmitriy Salita three times before the fight was stopped after only 76 seconds. Salita, who dropped to 30-1 with one draw, was on the canvas after barely 10 seconds at Metro Radio Arena. Khan then hurt him with a left, forcing another count, and followed up with a lightning-quick combination to send the New Yorker down on one knee. He got up but was unsteady on the ropes, and the referee stopped the bout to give Khan his first successful defense of a title he won by beating Andreas Kotelnik of Ukraine in July. Khan, who improved to 22-1, said: "We had too much power for this guy."
