On Friday, April 20, Amir Khan stated that believes he’s hitting his peak years ahead of his comeback clash against Phil Lo Greco at a sold-out Echo Arena in Liverpool.
On Saturday, Khan had the audacity to back up his claim–wiping out the tough-talking and under-performing Lo Greco in just 39 seconds.
Although it was against an overmatched, lower-level opponent, Khan handled business in impressive fashion showing his patented speed and power from the break.
After the victory, Khan wasted no time proclaiming his return to big time boxing.
“Khan is back,”t said Khan afterward in the ring (per ESPN). “I wanted to prove a point. I trained for a 12-round fight. My hand coordination is very sharp. I saw I hurt him with the left hook and it was over. I’m back with a bang. At the moment, I’m a 147-[pound] fighter. My target is to win another world title.”
So what’s next for Khan?
One fight that has peeked the boxing worlds interest for many years is against fellow Matchroom Boxing fighter, Kell Brook.
“The weight is an issue with Kell [Brook]. I’m a 147-pound fighter,” said Khan. “I will fight and beat Kell Brook and the world knows it. Kell Brook has been living off my name for a long time. I came and signed with Matchroom, I’m the one chasing Kell.”
