Today at 5:15 pm ET streaming on the new ESPN+ app in the United States and airing on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom, Amir Khan returns from a two-year layoff with a 150-pound catchweight bout against Phil Lo Greco in the main event from Liverpool’s Echo Arena.
Khan (31-4, 19 KO) will look to impress and go after a bigger fight later this year, but Lo Greco (28-3, 15 KO) certainly has designs on playing spoiler and potentially landing a big fight for himself if he can score the upset.
It’s really anyone’s guess as to what Khan, 31, will look like after a long layoff, and whether or not he still has the hunger to compete at a top level. If he doesn’t, Lo Greco could well capitalize, though the Canadian is certainly the underdog.
We’ll have live round-by-round coverage for the main event, so join us this afternoon!
