Lo Greco: Unlike 'Salesman' Amir Khan, I'll Fight Kell Brook Next!

Phil Lo Greco is planning to do a real number on former world champion Amir Khan in their upcoming fight on Saturday night at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.

Khan is taking part in his first fight in two years, after being inactive following a sixth round knockout at the hands of then middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez in May 2016.

In that contest, Khan moved up to a catch-weight of 155-pounds to fight for the WBC title at 160.

If Khan wins, it would place him in line for a huge domestic showdown with fellow former champion Kell Brook, who recently moved up to 154-pounds.

Lo Greco is planning to take away that opportunity.

"I'm here to spoil the party. I want to beat Khan, come back here, and fight Kell Brook," Lo Greco told Sky Sports.

"Mr. Eddie Hearn, can't wait to meet you. We'll talk after I beat Khan. You have to be gracious and give me a fair deal to come back and fight Brook at 154lbs. Eddie is a smart guy - he's lining up Khan to fight Brook but, once I beat Khan, he'll think 'let me get him to fight Brook'."

While Khan has been stating in numerous interviews that he wants to fight Brook, Lo Greco believes the Bolton boxer is just putting on an act. He does not believe Khan has any intention of facing Brook.

"Khan is a salesman," Lo Greco said. "He looked for every way out of fighting Brook. Then he fought [Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez] and said: 'at least I fought the middleweight champion'.

"Brook had a belt, back in the day. Eddie Hearn offered you all kinds of money and you declined. He doesn't want to fight Kell Brook. He's looking for a way out. If he really wanted to fight Brook, why would he want to get down to 147lbs [to fight me] when Brook is at 154lbs?"

Lo Greco makes a valid point. Khan has done absolutely anything to avoid fighting Brook. I feel as I did with Mayweather-Pacquiao now for Brook-Khan, it's several years and too many losses too late (if it even happens at all).…

Khan’t is a B list celeb now. He should change his name to Khandashian. All genuine UK boxing fans consider him an irrelevance. He’s run scared from the Brook fight until everyone has all but lost interest in it. The…
