Amir Khan will return to the ring after nearly two years out come April 21st at the Echo Arena in Liverpool and the Bolton boxer is already back in heavy training.
He’s going back to his roots for this one, is Khan. A Bolton man born and bred, he won’t have too far to travel from home to the venue on the night.
A fresh year is upon him and he appears to have genuine desire to get back to world title level in boxing.
Khan has always been renowned for his hand speed over the years.
His blazing combinations have dazzled fans in some fights, with some opponents been left overwhelmed by the sheer volume and velocity of shots coming at them all at once.
His promoter Eddie Hearn released this new training footage of Khan and he’s looking as sharp as ever:

Khan still has plenty of time to get ready for April 21st so if this scintillating speed is anything to go by, fans could be in for a treat.
