Amir Khan knocks out Phil Lo Greco inside 40 seconds

Lo Greco tipped the scales at 10st 9lbs 5oz ahead of Saturday night's clash at the Echo Arena

Amir Khan returned to the ring for the first time in almost two years tonight and produced one of the quickest wins in recent memory over the hapless Phil Lo Greco.

A welterweight fight between Amir Khan and Canadian Phil Lo Greco.

Khan stated that he is a 147lb fighter and is not a 154lb fighter, which immediately puts a potential clash with Kell Brook but in same breath states that he is chasing Kell Brook.

"I think it can happen maybe end of the year".

Khan's blurring hand speed was evident as he floored Lo Greco (28-4, 15 KOs), 33, with a left hook followed by an overhand right.

'I want to say a big thank you to Liverpool, they were great tonight, ' Khan said after the fight. "I will fight and beat Kell Brook and the world knows it. Brook's been living off my name for a long time".

This was Khan's first in a three-fight deal with promoter Eddie Hearn, who also works with Brook. The change of trainer.I had to make some changes. I've sparred with him.

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 think the fight between me and him would be massive, and that's what the Brits want to see".

"The weight is an issue with Kell [Brook]. I'm 31 now, the peak years of my career, and I've made my mistakes and they're in the past, I don't want to make them again, so we move forward now and make the right choices". The Bolton fighter, known for his lightning quick hand speed, set about Lo Greco from the bell and an early knockdown was a sign of things to come.

"All the fans want the fight, he can go in the jungle and chase stars but when he gets in with me he will be seeing stars", Brook said.

Lo Greco clambered to his feet, but stumbled into a flurry of punches from Khan, and referee Victor Loughlin waved the fight off as he wilted by the ropes.
