Amir Khan To Kell Brook: I'm Chasing You, Remember That!

Amir Khan turned his attention to a fight with fellow Briton Kell Brook after beating Phil Lo Greco in 39 seconds on a devastating return to the ring at Liverpool’s Echo Arena.

It had been two years since Khan last fought, when he was brutally knocked out by Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, but he made up for lost time by swiftly seeing off Canadian Lo Greco with a first-round knockout.

Lo Greco first hit the canvas when Khan caught him flush with a right and, though he got back up, it was soon over as the 31-year-old’s flurry of left hands forced the end.

Khan displayed no ring rust following his hiatus and showed the hand speed which once won him a world title had also not slowed.

It was also an emphatic message to one of his bitter rivals watching from ringside.

Brook was booed by the crowd when shown on the big screens and when he came inside the ropes after the contest, he was assured Khan was coming for him next.

“I want to become a world champion again so I want to fight the top guys in the welterweight division,” Khan told Sky Sports Main Event.

“I’m a 147lb fighter. I moved up to 150lb for this fight because I’ve not been in the ring for two years. That (Brook) fight I’m not rushing and I’m not running away from.

“I will fight Kell Brook and I will beat Kell Brook. I’m a better fighter and a stronger fighter.

“I’m not a fighter to run away. I came to Eddie (Hearn) and signed a deal with your promotional company, Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom company. I’m chasing you, remember that.”

Khan was clearly not in the mood for lengthy exchanges in the ring as he left after addressing Brook before his foe could respond to him.

[QUOTE=micky1971;19030268]And the reason for that is?[/QUOTE] My belief is that Khan wants a payday fight, but his fragile ego would never handle losing to Brook. He'd happily sell out and lose to Canelo, Floyd or Manny...but getting KTFO by Brook…
