Amir Khan knocks out Phil Lo Greco inside 40 seconds

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

"I've been out of the ring for two years but I've still been busy in the gym", said Khan afterward. The bout was over seconds later as he pinned Lo Greco to the ropes and with some incredible hand speed, he landed some powerful punches that his rival reeling and forced the referee to intervene and call the win in favour of Khan via technical knockout.

The 31-year-old British boxer had not fought anywhere for two years since being beaten by Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in Las Vegas in May 2016.

Khan - last world champion at light welterweight six years ago - sees his future at welterweight, where the champions are Keith Thurman (WBC-WBA), Spence (IBF) and Jeff Horn (WBO), who fights Terence Crawford on June 9.

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.

He and Khan fought at a catch weight super welterweight.

Maybe if Eddie Hearn puts together a solid card to bolster the headliner, or even provide a double-header with a world title contest, Khan v Brook is certainly Pay-Per-View worthy and would have fans clamoring for tickets.

But Khan said: "We're close to making the fight happen because we have the same promoter now. I wanted to prove a point coming back", he told the BBC. I'm not a fighter to run away.

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

"I'll fight Kell Brook and I'll beat Kell Brook", he boldly declared. I'm a 147-pound fighter.

"The UK market is massive now and fighters from America want to come here. I came and signed with Matchroom, I'm the one chasing Kell", added Khan. "If it means going up a division, I will".

Broner fought out a majority draw during an entertaining bout against Vargas in NY last night, with one judge scoring the contest 115-113 for Broner and two scorecards of 114-114.
