This past weekend welterweight Amir Khan won in dominating fashion in a catchweight bout against Canadian Phil Lo Greco.
All of 39 seconds was all it took for the English boxing star to announce his return to the sport after a near two-year vacation.
His blinding hand speed and willingness to go to Lo Greco paid off early doors, as the Canadian and his team looked bewildered at the hurricane that was in front of them.
What was nice to see afterwards was a more mature, humble 31-year-old Amir Khan at the post-fight press conference whom once again reiterated his willingness to fight the best.
Something he’s always done, to be fair.
Three main opponents seem to be in line for Khan next up this year:
- Kell Brook
- Adrien Broner
- Errol Spence Jr
The biggest one on the list by far is of course his old nemesis Brook.
A fight that has been boiling for a few years now.
One fans are desperate to see at this stage.
As for Broner a fight at welterweight between the two could potentially suit Khan’s style.
Moreover, Broner has not really shown one punch knockout power at the weight since moving up and Khan’s chin is always the worry for him going into any of his fights.
It could be a fight that would work well for Khan.
Spence however represents someone who likely would go through Khan in a ruthless manner with the power he possesses.
A man who has no trouble going to his opponents either.
I’d expect Khan to bag at least one of these fights before 2018 is out.
