Khan returns from two year layoff with Knockout over Lo Greco
Amir Khan made a blistering return to the ring today by beating Phil Lo Greco by knockout inside 39 seconds at Liverpool’s Echo Arena.
The 31-year-old had not fought for two years, since being beaten by Saul “Canelo” Álvarez in Las Vegas in May 2016, and he made up for lost time by knocking the Canadian Lo Greco down twice in the early stages.
Khan, in his first bout in the UK in five years, sent Lo Greco to the canvas with a swift one-two combination inside the opening 30 seconds and the contest was over moments later as the Briton’s devastating hand speed pinned his opponent up against the ropes to ensure it was over just moments after it had started.
It meant Khan delivered an emphatic statement to Kell Brook, who was watching on from ringside, before a possible all-British grudge match between the two Matchroom stablemates.
