Amir Khan announces return to boxing ring

Amir Khan signs fight deal with Matchroom to end Eddie Hearn feud Amir Khan takes step closer to boxing comeback with shock Eddie Hearn alliance

If he really wanted the fight between me and Kell Brook he should not be speaking to me, he should be speaking to (my adviser) Al Haymon.

Khan said: "Last year was a bit hard for me but the jungle definitely gave me a place to think about life and where I want to be and I decided boxing is where I belong".

Thereafter, though, the 31-year-old Khan (31-4, 19 KOs) will test himself against a higher level of opposition as he builds toward the "super fight" Hearn mentioned.

However, a shot at Spence could be easier to arrange and the American says he would have no objections to the bout, as he says Khan is a bigger name than the man he beat to become world champion. "British boxing is in such a good place and I genuinely can't wait to get back in that ring with the incredible home support behind me", he said.

Khan's decision to sign with Hearn comes as a surprise, with the former two-weight world champion previously making public his dislike of Hearn, as he attempted to force through an all-British grudge match against Kell Brook, also promoted by Matchroom. "It will probably bring the best out of him and we will give something back to the fans for helping us throughout our careers".

"Then I had the hand injury, and I was waiting for the hand to get better. I just don't like Eddie Hearn", the recently I'm a Celebrity contestant once said. "Now he fights for Matchroom, finally we will see me and him in the ring".

'He's very disrespectful and he's never come clear with me.

"Great business is great business and this is a great move for everybody", Hearn said.

"His name is bigger because he has fought more big names [than Brook]".

Hearn says: 'Behind all the nonsense Amir has always been a nice lad. I want to win the world championship.

It will also be five years since Khan last fought in the United Kingdom, and since then Hearn has repeatedly tempted to lure him into a fight with rival Kell Brook, contributing to the tension between them.

"Pacquiao, Garcia and Peterson are what we are looking at, but when Eddie and I spoke we talked about Kell Brook being the target", he added.

Khan will shortly head back to San Francisco to begin preparations for April 21 at Liverpool's Echo Arena with his American trainer Virgil Hunter.
