After a two-year sabbatical, Amir Khan needed only 40 seconds to drop Phil Lo Greco twice for a first-round TKO and begin the hype for an eventual showdown with rival Kell Brook.

Lo Greco, who’s been active with his trash talk throughout the prefight buildup, was completely overmatched by Khan’s speed. A right uppercut preceded a 1-2 that put Lo Greco down 15 seconds in. A flurry¬†of hooks, punctuated by a left, put Lo Greco down again for good.

With less than a minute’s work, you can make any definitive decisions on how much Khan has left or what improvements new trainer Joe Goossen has brought. But it was good to see him aggressive and not wasting time with a lower tier opponent.

As for Khan vs. Brook, I still have to favor Special K. Khan’s speed and combination punching will trouble him, but I can’t see Brook not being able to land something big at some point over 12 rounds. Regardless, I see their styles and the hometown atmosphere making for an exciting fight however long it lasts.

  1. I dont think Khan wants the Brook fight, if he did he would agree to a catchweight fight that should easily be able to be made… I thought the whole point of Khan signing with Matchroom was get the fight with Brook made…
