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

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

Two years after moving up two divisions and a risky middleweight fight in Las Vegas in which he was decisively knocked out in the fifth round by Mexican star Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, Khan outlined his desire to return to the welterweight division and dominate. "Now he fights for Matchroom, finally we will see me and him in the ring".

"One of the biggest stars in world boxing is back at a time when British boxing is booming", Hearn said.

Khan has put Spence Jr on his three-fight wishlist as he looks to regain a world title under Matchroom Boxing and having boxed in America for the last five years, could get a shot at the Texan known as "The Truth".

That humbling experience also focused Khan on ending his feud with his previous promoter, Eddie Hearn, who he had accused of being the "unlikeable" barrier to a long-awaited domestic blockbuster of a fight with Kell Brook.

It was told that the former world champion will be in action on April 21 in Liverpool, and the name of his opponent will be revealed next week.

Khan has been on the hunt for new promoters after an injury layoff and stint on ITV's I'm A Celeb.

Father invites 14-year-old daughter's bullies to her funeral
A memorial service at Our Lady of Lourdes from 10am Saturday had originally been planned for family and close friends only. The opposition Labor Party's last prime minister, Kevin Rudd, tweeted, "Any form of bullying is an assault on our values".

"The plan is to box in April and then again in August or September in preparation for a super fight in winter 2018", Hearn said Wednesday, according to a story posted to the website of London's Daily Mail.

"It's time to put everything that's happened behind me and become a champion again", Hearn added.

Khan had been at loggerheads with Hearn for years. "I just don't like Eddie Hearn", the recently I'm a Celebrity contestant once said.

'He's very disrespectful and he's never come clear with me. "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. At this final stage of my career I need a team who can get me the big fights.

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

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. He is still one of the big names in boxing and there are some huge fights out there for him - Broner, Thurman, Spence, Pacquiao.
