Khan makes up for lost time with 40-second Lo Greco knockout
Amir Khan took just 40 seconds to knock Phil Lo Greco out on his return to the ring after a two-year absence in a sensational homecoming in Liverpool on Saturday.
Khan was brutally knocked out by Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez in Las Vegas when he stepped up to middleweight in May 2016.
The former unified light-welterweight world champion said it was a mistake to agree to that fight and acknowledged he would be finished if he lost his comeback bout with Canadian Lo Greco.
Khan showed he is not done yet at a raucous Echo Arena, where he came out firing with the quick hands that made him such a force at the peak of his powers and Lo Greco suffered a humiliating defeat in less than a minute.
The Brit, fighting in his homeland for the first time since 2013, put the 33-year-old down after catching him with a sharp right-left combination only 13 seconds in.
He followed that up with some fierce body shots and the referee stepped in to end the fight in a flash.
Khan told Sky Sports: "I'm back with a bang. I want to become a world champion hopefully this year or next year."
