Britain’s former world light-welterweight champion makes his long-awaited comeback as he returns to the ring for the first time in two years when he faces Canadian Phil Lo Greco in Liverpool.

His last bout in May 2016 saw Khan suffer a sixth-round knockout at the hands of Mexican Saul Alvarez. But he still believes the glory days can be recaptured, especially after losing weight during his stint in the jungle for ITV’s I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!

Khan, in fighting-talk mode, says: ‘Greco says maybe I’m past my best, but I’m 31 and at the peak of my career. Boxing put me here and I am going to finish on a high.’
