Khan beats Lo Greco in 39 seconds on British return

Amir Khan Beats Phil Lo Greco via 1st-Round Knockout in Under 40 Seconds

(Web Desk) - British Pakistani boxer Amir Khan, a former world champion and an Olympic silver medallist at the 2004 Games, will be back in the ring for the first time since being beaten by Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in May 2016 when he meets Canadian Phil Lo Greco in Liverpool on Saturday.

The Brit, fighting in his homeland for the first time since 2013, put the 33-year-old down after catching him with a sharp right-left combination only 13 seconds in.

Joe Goosen stepped in and Khan revealed his coach insisted he had to stare at Lo Greco the second he stepped through the ropes. "I know I've got a style where the crowd will come and watch me and want to see me".

"I wanna become a world champion either this year or next year".

It's all at stake for comeback kid Amir Khan when he takes on Phil Lo Greco this evening, with the Bolton fighter admitting his career is as good as dead if he fails to secure a victory and promising "fireworks" in the ring as a result.

But my defense, this team needs my defense more than anything. -Homecourt is shifting to IN with the series tied 1-1. However, you can see from the graph that LeBron has had a slew of Game Scores in the 30s this season.

In Liverpool, at the Echo Arena.

"The weight is an issue with Kell, I'm a 147-pound fighter", Khan said after the win.

Amir Khan threw a glass of water over opponent Phil Lo Greco after Lo Greco made personal comments about his wife Faryal Makhdoom at an opening press conference earlier this year.

But Khan says he would not suffer the same fate as Brook if he shared the ring with Errol Spence Jr, who ripped his rival's IBF welterweight title away with an 11th-round stoppage last May. "I'm a better fighter and a stronger fighter".

But an unimpressed Brook said: "He doesn't want the fight, he just ran off. I'm chasing you, remember that".
