Amir Khan takes step closer to boxing comeback with shock Eddie Hearn alliance

Amir Khan signs fight deal with Matchroom to end Eddie Hearn feud

The former unified world champion was most recently in the public eye when he appeared on ITV programme "I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here" in the latter half of 2017. "It will probably bring the best out of him and we will give something back to the fans for helping us throughout our careers".

Khan (31) dismissed concerns about Hearn having a conflict of interest by also working with Brook.

Speaking at a press conference at London's Dorchester Hotel, Khan said: "I don't think anyone would have thought me and Eddie would be sat at the same table - maybe up against each other, but never on the same team. I know he has moved up a weight but maybe that fight could happen later on in the year", Khan stated. "I train and work hard and as long as I do that Allah is with me". I saw that I have two or three prime years left in what I want to do most of all, that I'm a 31-year-old man now not a kid'. "I have put behind all the family problems, personal problems and relationship problems", he said when asked about his problems with wife FarayL Makhdoom which made headlines for at least three months.

Founder of MyMMANews.com - After writing for Ultimate MMA magazine and serving as the editor for U.S. Combat Sports, both of which went on hiatus, I chose to venture out on my own and enlist a staff of writers and photographers that could help me achieve my goal of telling stories that would otherwise go untold.

Khan had been at loggerheads with Hearn for years.


'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'. "Last time he fought, British boxing was in a good place".

A fight between the pair has always been touted, however, never came to fruition as the two boxers camps could not agree terms.

With Brook already signed on to fight Sergey Rabchenko in March of this year, Hearn is keen for Khan to fight a significant opponent, knowing full well it could be a warm up to the much awaited Brook-Khan fight.

Brook warned that he is seriously considering hanging up the gloves at the end of 2018 and says a long-awaited fight between him and Khan has to happen this year. "Of course, he's a more known name than Kell Brook". And April 21 is going to be a lot of fun.
