Khan and Lo Greco go head to head as Khan throws water at him
30 January 2018

AMIR Khan loses his temper towards Phil Lo Greco in their press conference when Lo Greco gets personal towards him.

Khan who faces Lo Greco on his return to the ring at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on April 21, gets up set when Lo Greco talks about Khan's public spat with his wife on Twitter last year.

Former unified Light-Welterweight ruler Khan is back in action for the first time since May 2016 where he stepped up to Middleweight to face Mexican star Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez where he was knocked out.

Things when from bad to worse for Khan, when his wife sparked rumours of an affair with heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

Both became very open on Twitter for a number of weeks and Lo Greco decided to address this in the press conference. He made reference to a tweet Khan sent to Anthony Joshua in August 2017 that concerned his own marriage and Khan later apologised to the British heavyweight for sending it.

Khan who refused to apologise said "I will train like it's a world-title fight,"

"Greco says maybe I'm past my best. I'm 31 and at the peak of my career. For me, boxing is the way forward. Boxing put me here and I am going to finish on a high.

"I have a great three-fight deal. To start in Liverpool, a great city, this will be another big one. He has just motivated me to go to the gym and work hard. I am going to give this guy a beating for 12 rounds."
