The British-Pakistani boxer Amir Khan is making his comeback to the ring after two years of hiatus by signing up for a three-fight deal with Matchroom Boxing.
Amir’s first opponent will be the Candian Boxer Phil Lo Greco at the Liverpool Echo Arena on April 21. The two boxers met today at a press conference and started a heated conversation each other.
Things got really out of control when Lo Greco made comments about Amir Khan’s wife Faryal Makhdoom’s fake affair with Anthony Joshua. In an instant, the former world champion got up from his seat and threw a glass full of water on Lo Greco.
The defeat by Canelo started a losing streak – then he lost his family, his wife and then he posted on Twitter telling the world heavyweight champion he could have his leftovers.’ – Lo Greco
The security immediately jumped in to separate the fighters from each other but the scenes continued for several minutes. The situation was controlled by promoter Hearn who stood between the fighters until both of them calmed down.
Lo Greco was commenting on the recent personal events of Amir Khan that were made public by him and his wife through social media. The two had announced they divorced each other but after a couple of months, things became back to normal.
Amir Khan is set to face Lo Greco on April 21 on his comeback fight.
