The boxing world reacts to Khan closing the show inside 39 seconds tonight against over matched Canadian Phil Lo Greco who took the fight on relatively short notice.
Lo Greco was never going to be a world beater in terms of credible opposition for Khan but that said, after two years out of the ring, he was never going to be thrown in at the deep end either.
31-year-old Khan did what he had to do, which cannot be taken away from him.
Nor the blistering, exciting hand speed he put on full display in Liverpool tonight.
Here is some of the reaction and response so far from the boxing community to the fight:
What a man Amir Khan is ?

What about when Brook stopped Rabchenko? ‘He’s back’ lmao still biased as fuck even with Khan on Sky ? I’m a huge fan of both so glad they’re both back with a bang collectively

Amir Khan really beat that mans ass. I’m down to watch him to fight Kell Brook. That would be fun. And hopefully last longer
