    Fair play to Amir here. Phil Lo Greco the opponent.

    The man is a force of nature

    Well he has lost to the best Porter, Spence and Joseph Elegele.

    Despite "King" Amir telling us he's not a "Tune up kind of fighter" and deserves to only to be in the big fights, guess what?
    tbf we never expected anything else really , did we ? Lo Greco has been fighting heavier recently and nowadays Khan could lose any fight they put him in.
    Basically, who gives a fuck!

    His 48% KO ratio means it's a 50-50 fight 😁
    To be fair to Khan it's not too bad an opponent given the amount of time he's been out and the way he lost to Canelo.
    He went the distance with Porter a few fights ago.

    Just thought.....
    Didn't Greco play Beppe in Eastenders years ago?
    Warren must be Happy, I'll be watching Frampton.

    No it’s not too bad I suppose given his two year absence.

    Do you think they’ll have the nerve to go ppv......

    No chance especially as there is a better fight on.

    Amir Khan to fight Phil lo Greco in Liverpool - first bout since 2016

    Britain's Amir Khan will fight Canadian Phil lo Greco at the Liverpool Echo Arena on 21 April in his first bout for almost two years.

    Khan, 31, was beaten by Saul Alvarez in a WBC middleweight title bout in May 2016, his most recent fight.

    "He will be coming with everything to win this fight and I'm not going to give him an inch," said former light-welterweight world champion Khan.

    "He's an aggressive fighter who is always looking to come forward."

    Khan has won 31 and lost four of his 35 professional bouts, while Lo Greco, 33, has 28 wins and three defeats from 31 fights.

    "Being my first fight in the UK, I'm excited about the crowd," said Lo Greco.

    "I can't wait to feel that energy. As much as UK fans love their fighters, they love great fights and I promise just that. This night will go down as one of the best fights ever in the UK.

    "I've got a full training camp this time around - there will be no room for error. Amir Khan will be knocked out."

    During his time away from the ring, Khan appeared on ITV show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.

    Shed some rust and let's hope he gets back on the mix after this tune up.

    Watched him a few times. It's *Monstor . Bit of a rough and tumble guy who can billy goat. Spence brutalized him with body work.

    Amir Khan: Boxer throws water at Phil lo Greco in heated exchange about personal life

    British welterweight Amir Khan threw water over opponent Phil lo Greco at a hostile news conference on Tuesday - reacting angrily to talk about his personal life.

    Khan, 31, is preparing for his first fight in almost two years and the pair meet on 21 April in Liverpool.

    At a heated pre-fight promotional event, Lo Greco pointed to Khan's family issues and marital difficulties since his defeat by Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez in May 2016.

    The former world welterweight champion responded by throwing water at the Canadian, prompting an on-stage melee.

    Lo Greco said: "After the Canelo loss you went on a losing streak - family, wife and then you go out and tweet to the heavyweight champion of the world. What is wrong with you, mate?"

    Lo Greco's reference was to a tweet Khan sent to Anthony Joshua in August 2017. It concerned his own marriage and the 31-year-old later apologised to the British heavyweight for sending it.

    After security had calmed the clash on stage, promoter Eddie Hearn asked Canadian fighter Lo Greco to apologise, while Khan later said his rival's behaviour would serve as motivation to "give this guy a beating".

    The Bolton boxer, who has won 31 of his 35 professional bouts, has signed a three-fight deal with Matchroom after ending a long-running feud with promoter Hearn.

    Just watched the water throwing incident.
    Blatantly "staged" as Hearn usually shits himself instead of pushing one fighter away 😁
    All designed to take the attention away from the Frampton fight which also had it's press conference today 😉

    It all looked abit contrived to me but these are my observations.

    1. Frampton fight donaire the same night as amir is fighting a bum. How do we secure more views? Pretend there's bad blood.....
    2. Throwing water whilst being cheered on by batman and superman detracts from the seriousness they were trying to portray
    3. Eddie Hearn demanding an apology from the visiting fighter after he brushed Joshua's racist comments under the carpet seems abit rich
    4. Greco is nowhere near fighting weight. If he makes 147 he will be more drain d than Oscar vs PAC.
