Watch Amir Khan destroy Phil Lo Greco in just 40 seconds

"You look at these great fighters like Joshua cleaning up, doing really well, knocking guys out, selling out stadiums and I'm like, "Wow, this is where I want to be again", Khan told a press conference on Thursday.

He made a shockwave signing with Kell Brook's promoter Eddie Hearn a longtime rival promoter to Khan, both would go back and forth on social media take little jabs at each other for years over the Brook fight not happening, but nobody would expect Khan to sign to Hearn unless he was legitimately interested in the Brook bout.

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. "I wanted to prove a point coming back - I was trained to fight for 12 rounds, I had to make some changes and Phil lo Greco is a risky opponent", Khan told the BBC. "Kell Brook's been living off my name for a long, long time".

"I'm two years out of the ring but I'm back with a big bang". Crack open a beer, sit back, and enjoy tonight's action! My hand co-ordination is very sharp. I saw the opening and finished him off.

The former world champion was ending an absence of nearly two years and gave a reminder of his searing hand speed as he brushed aside Lo Greco at the Echo Arena.

But an unimpressed Brook said: "He doesn't want the fight, he just ran off".

"My future holds some big fights", Khan said. He was looking at me when I came out, but he stopped.

"I want to give the United Kingdom fans some big fights and sell out arenas and stadiums".

Hearn wants to make Khan-Brook for late 2018 at the Manchester Arena. I've changed my trainer, I had to make changes.

Canadian Lo Greco, 33, weighed in at 149.5-pounds before the fight at a sold-out Echo Arena in Liverpool.
