Amir Khan Calls Out Adrien Broner After Comeback Fight

Amir Khan knocks out Phil Lo Greco inside 40 seconds

Khan (32-4, 20 KOs) wanted to impress on his ring return, the English boxer's first performance in the United Kingdom for five years and the first live boxing event on the new ESPN+ subscription streaming service.

Khan faces Phil Lo Greco of Canada in Liverpool on Saturday 23 months after he was beaten by Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in Las Vegas, having stepped up two divisions to middleweight, and five years since he last fought on home soil against Julio Diaz in Sheffield.

His brash Canadian opponent had no answer to Khan's lightning start and a blazing right hand sent Lo Greco crumpling to the canvas.

The bout is being held in Liverpool, at the Echo Arena, and marks the first match for Khan for almost two years.

"A fight with Kell Brook could happen". I am a stronger fighter, a better fighter. "Kell Brook's been living off my name for a long, long time".

Following the fight, the victorious Khan told Sky Sports Main Event: "I've been out of the ring for two years I've never taken a day off the gym".


Opponents are already queuing up for Khan, with Hearn holding talks with American promoters Top Rank about a future clash against Terence Crawford, while WBO champion Jeff Horn also wants to force his way into the British fighter's plans.

'I was thinking he's not looking back and me and I wanted him to.

"I've been out the ring for two years", said the victor in reaction to his victory. I just want to say - we had that little bit of argument but I put that behind me.

"I came here to do a job, a clinical job. When he gets in there with me, I'll make him see stars!" This is where me and Eddie need to sit down with Kell's team.
