Amir Khan Warns: My Best Performances Come After a Loss!

Former world champion Amir Khan (31-4, 19 KOs) is gearing up for his long awaiting return to the ring.

In his first fight time in nearly two years, Khan will return to the ring against Canadian Phil Lo Greco on April 21 at Echo Arena in Liverpool.

The last time Khan was in action was back in May of 2016, when he moved up to a catch-weight of 155-pounds and was knocked out with a huge bomb in the sixth round by then WBC middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

Khan explains that he came back stronger and better after suffering knockout defeats at the hands of Breidis Prescott and Danny Garcia, and he plans to do the same again.

The Bolton boxer says he's really getting back into form while training with new coach Joe Goossen.

"I jumped back from being knocked out by Prescott to win the light-welterweight world title. I jumped back with good performances against Collazo and Alexander after being beaten by Garcia. I have had my best performances after being beaten. I go back to the drawing board, work on my skills and become better," Khan told Talksport.

"I'd rather get knocked out by one punch than take numerous punches. The shots I've taken when I've been knocked out, there haven't been many. Everything is good, in training I feel better than ever."

A victory over Lo Greco can set up a potential catch-weight clash with domestic rival Kell Brook in the later part of the year. Brook, who recently moved up to 154-pounds, is willing to entertain a catch-weight.

Khan is planning several strategies to come away with his hand raised over Lo Greco.

"I have a good boxing brain, a lot of skills and I like to mix it up," Khan said. "It just depends but whatever Phil Lo Greco brings I'm going to have answers for in the fight."

Khan's career pattern. Bum, journeyman, feather fist contender, over the hill veteran - wins. Legit title holder or top tier fighter - loses. Rinse / repeat.

Khan is overrated and has only beaten fighters who wee over the hill. He needs to fight a prime fight for a change. He fought an Over the hill Alexander, an or the hill Collazo and now he is fighting…
