Amir Khan Signs Matchroom Deal And Confirms Date For Ring Return

Amir Khan Signs Matchroom Deal And Confirms Date For Ring Return

Khan will be desperate to get his boxing career back on track, and joining up with Hearn may be the best way to do that. With Brook also under the same roof in Hearn's stable, the fight looks a great deal closer than at any time for the last four years.

Khan has labeled Hearn disrespectful in the past and has been continually enraged by the promoter's conduct during fight negotiations with Kell Brook.

The 31-year-old has signed a three-fight deal with Matchroom Boxing and will return to action on April 21 at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, live on Sky Sports.

Khan has not fought since his devastating sixth-round KO defeat to Canelo Alvarez back in May 2016 - and after a stint in the jungle the Bolton boxer is ready to return to the ring.

The former world champion will return to the ring for the first time in nearly two years on April 21 at The Echo Arena in Liverpool, with an opponent to be announced next week. "Eddie's good at that and you have to respect him". "This is a press conference I thought we would never see". I phoned him and messaged him last night to let him no before anyone else. It's been almost five years since he last boxed in this country.

'It's great to be here, no one ever though me and Eddie would be sitting on the same table, on the same team, but we made a decision to put everything behind us and move forward, ' Khan said at a press conference in London on Wednesday.

But the pair appeared to have buried the hatchet as "King Khan" sets out his path back to challenging for world titles with three bouts before the end of the year.

The former unified super-lightweight world champion had previously vowed not to work with Matchroom chief Hearn. "That's one of the reasons why I keep away from Eddie Hearn and his shows, I just don't want to be in that drama".

Watch Iain Lee talk about what really went down on I'm A Celebrity, the ups and downs of his career, and his challenges with mental health only on Unfiltered with James O'Brien. "I'm feeling fit and strong and I can't wait to get back in the ring".

Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn and Khan have been at each other's throats for the past few years in one of Britain's most bitter boxing feuds.

Amir Khan says a British superfight against bitter rival Kell Brook is an option for later this year.
