22 April, 2018, 06:00
It's all at stake for comeback kid Amir Khan when he takes on Phil Lo Greco this evening, with the Bolton fighter admitting his career is as good as dead if he fails to secure a victory and promising "fireworks" in the ring as a result.
Khan, campaigning at welterweight, and arch nemesis Kell Brook - now up at light-middle - had a verbal exchange in the ring afterwards where each faced inevitable questions regarding a potential grudge match down the line.
Khan then pinned Lo Greco to the ropes before the super-welterweight contest ended moments after it had started.
Fighting for the first time since his loss to Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, Khan put away Lo Greco easily with a knockdown in the first 15 seconds, before finishing his man off inside 40.
He followed that up with some fierce body shots and the referee stepped in to end the fight in a flash.
I was a little nervous, but I am back with a big bang.
Whether, after almost two years out of competitive action, he still has the speed and technique to shield his fragile chin is the question fight fans will want answered.
"I'm a 147lb fighter".
Would AmirKhan beat Kell Brook? "Kell Brook's been living off my name for a long, long time".
AmirKhan threw a glass of water over opponent Phil Lo Greco after Lo Greco made personal comments about his wife Faryal Makhdoom at an opening press conference earlier this year. "I came and signed with Matchroom, I'm the one chasing Kell".
That means all eyes will be on Liverpool's Echo Arena, where the Khan vs Lo Greco fight is set to take place. "I'm a better fighter and a stronger fighter". I'm here, I want the fight.
Brook responded: "He doesn't want the fight".
