Eddie Hearn shares video of Amir Khan in training for comeback

Amir Khan Press Conference

Eddie Hearn has taken to social media to post what seems to be a promotional video of Amir Khan in training in a bid to get fans excited for his return. 

The 31-year-old boxer has been out of action for almost two years and will make his return against Phil Lo Greco at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on April 21. 

His last appearance in the ring was during his vicious knockout by WBC middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez back in 2016. 

Khan will also be stepping down in weight category since his previous fight to face Lo Greco, with the contest capped at 150lbs. 

Despite the long absence, Hearn has tried to get people talking again about the man from Manchester. 

The promoter posted on Twitter: "Next up the return of @amirkingkhan April 21 @EchoArena Live on @SkySportsBoxing."

The video starts with Khan himself speaking about his return and his journey back from injury with various clips shown in a cinematic manner, ending with a promotional message of "Khan vs Lo Greco." 

Despite some fans expressing joy on Khan's return, a majority of the supporters suggested disinterest. 

One tweet read: "Soz Eddie, won't be paying to watch Amir ever again!"

Another post read: "Who cares!!"

It seems like a lot of fans have lost interest and faith in the now veteran boxer since his last fight and don't count him as one of the top contenders in the country. 

But, despite the challenges, Khan has remained confident and is determined to mark his return with a win, although he knows that it won't be easy. 

“I can’t wait to get back into the ring", he told the Guardian.

"Phil Lo Greco will be coming with everything to win this fight and I’m not going to give him an inch. He’s an aggressive fighter who is always looking to press the fight and come forward. That makes for a very exciting and action-packed fight for the fans.

“He’s shared the ring with the likes of Spence Jr and Porter, so he’s operated at the highest level.

"I respect him as a fighter and know he will be coming with big ambitions but I’m going to put on a great performance and prove to the boxing world that the king is well and truly back.”
