Khan and Hearn put egos aside and agree three-fight contract

Khan and Hearn put egos aside and agree three-fight contract

Khan hasn't fought in nearly two years, having been brutally knocked out by Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in May 2016, but he is eager to reignite his career at 147lbs and feels like Hearn is the man to mastermind his comeback. "This is a press conference I thought we would never see". I'm going to get the feel of boxing again and go to training camp in a few weeks. Three fights this year is something I want to do and I can't wait.

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.

Khan has several times in the past, blamed the standoff on Brook's promoter, Eddie Hearn.

"The plan is to box in April and then again in August or September in preparation for a super fight in Winter 2018", said Hearn.

The welterweight, who has been out of the ring for the last 18 months also teamed up with Matchroom and Eddie Hearn, putting an end to one of the biggest feuds in British boxing.

Khan, 31, hasn't fought since a huge knockout loss to Canelo Alvarez and will be aiming for a Top 15 opponent for a planned comeback on April 21 in Liverpool.

"I would just love to test myself against him".




'That's one of the reasons why I keep away from Eddie Hearn and his shows, I just don't want to be in that drama'.

"I'm determined to win another world championship and I'm confident I've got the right team behind me to help me do so". 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.

"I've been out of the ring for too long, and I'm desperate to make up for lost time, starting in April". Eddie, in my view, is the best promoter in the UK.

And he said his time in the jungle was crucial in allowing him to think about his boxing career.

Brook is moving up to light-middleweight for his next fight, after years of straining to scale down to welter, but Hearn says: 'Kell would go back to 147lbs if it would bring him the Khan fight'.

Fans will be hoping the partnership will eventually see Khan face off against Brook, but after the former IBF welterweight champion moved up to 154 pounds that showdown is slightly more complicated. And April 21 is going to be a lot of fun.
