Khan knocks out Lo Greco

The Brit hadn't had a fight since his loss to Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in May 2016, but showed he still has the speed and power as he threw punches at Lo Greco from the opening bell.

The former unified light-welterweight world champion said it was a mistake to agree to that fight and acknowledged he would be finished if he lost his comeback bout with Canadian Lo Greco.

Amir Khan celebrates winning the Super-Welterweight Contest against Phil Lo Greco at the Echo Arena, Liverpool.

He followed that up with some fierce body shots and the referee stepped in to end the fight in a flash. "I wanted to prove a point coming back", he told the BBC.

The 2004 Olympic silver medallist also had a few choice words for Brook, saying: "I will fight and beat Kell Brook".

Khan also tweeted about the fight. I am happy to fight him.

'Fearless Girl' to Stare Down Stock Exchange, Not Bull, By Year-End
Besides, " Fearless Girl ", he said, wasn't a honest feminist call to action so much as it was an "advertising trick". Di Modica's bull is meant to signify American prosperity and strength, the artist said in comparison.

Brook looked impressive in his return fight earlier this year too, mind you.

"Brook's been living off my name for a long time".

Khan said: I am just going to enjoy this little break and [then] get back straight into the gym again. I saw I hurt him with the left hook and it was over. "He's going to be fighting tonight so it would be nice to see the victor of him and [Jesse] Vargas, I think that would be a good fight at 147lb".

Promoter for both fighters Eddie Hearn stated after that the British public seem desperate for the fight to happen, and is hoping to give them what they want this year, potentially in a sold out Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

After the fight, Khan challenged English rival Kell Brook.

Khan even mentioned as much straight away after last night's fight. "I came and signed with Matchroom, I'm the one chasing Kell".
