Amir Khan knocks out Phil Lo Greco inside 40 seconds

After five years a way from fighting in the United Kingdom, and almost two years since his last fight against Canelo Alvarez, it only took 36 seconds for Amir Khan to knock out Phil Lo Greco.

Inside of 40 seconds Khan dispatched of Lo Greco in emphatic fashion and put his full repertoire of combinations and hand speed on display.

Outside of heavyweight fights featuring Anthony Joshua, Khan-Brook is perhaps the biggest fight in British boxing. "I honestly believe your best years are done, I think your best years were in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and it´s going to show on Saturday night".

I will fight and beat Kell Brook and the world knows it. Kell Brook has been living off my name for a long time.

Khan reported himself "stronger, quicker and sharper than ever" - having been obliged to switch to the camp of veteran trainer Joe Goossen following Virgil Hunter's mystery illness - and has fundamentally ruled out any chances of not dazzling under the lights in his first fight in two years.

The Warriors now have a 3-0 lead over the Spurs and will look to close out their series on Saturday. The Warriors would have the same schedule for Games 6 and 7, if the Spurs avoid elimination.

Amir Khan is looking forward to riding the wave of interest in British boxing generated by the likes of world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua when he fights in the United Kingdom for the first time in five years. "It's great to be in a position now where I can make it back to the top again".

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". I'll make him see stars. "I came and signed with Matchroom, I'm the one chasing Kell". I want the fight.

Few fighters have endured the roller-coaster career that Khan has but it appears as if there is still plenty left in the tank at the age of 31.

The Bolton fighter has dropped five pounds in weight since that ill-fated middleweight bout against the now disgraced Mexican fighter in 2016 and looked in good condition on the scales.
