Khan eyeing Brook fight later in 2018

Every one in the room was there for the return of "King Khan", who has not fought since that brutal knockout defeat against Canelo Alvarez a full two years ago, but the cheers were hardly deafening. "Get Me Out Of Here", Khan ended a long-running feud with promoter Eddie Hearn before signing a three-fight deal with Hearn's Matchroom Boxing company.

"We've made it even more realistic to happen now, because I'm with Eddie Hearn and so is he", Khan said. I would like to be in a stadium to be honest with you.

"Phil Lo Greco, he's come to England to fight me, if he beats me it takes him on to bigger and better fights".

Brook marked his comeback with a second-round stoppage of Sergey Rabchenko in March and Khan insists he rates the Sheffield man highly, despite their ongoing war of words.

The Bolton fighter has dropped five pounds in weight since that ill-fated middleweight bout against the now disgraced Mexican fighter in 2016 and looked in good condition on the scales. I'm not going to say he's a bad fighter, he's a very good fighter, and he won a world title, so you have to respect that. "There are a lot of people who I could fight against in the United Kingdom after so long, and the last couple fights have been in America, I think, just to hype people to see me back here".

He immediately turned his attention to Khan, but the former WBA and IBF light-welterweight champion must get past Lo Greco in Liverpool first.

"Errol Spence is a very good fight for me". It's going to be a tough fight regardless.

"Maybe the whole welterweight division should wait and see the outcome of Horn against Crawford as a superstar from Down Under is about to emerge. With Manny Pacquiao and Randall Bailey already on his resume, Terence Crawford is going to be a nice scalp to add to it".
