Amir Khan will fight Phil Lo Greco in his long-awaited British comeback, live on Sky Sports.

Canadian Lo Greco has been named as the opponent for 'King Khan' in his first fight in two years, at the Echo Arena, Liverpool, on April 21.

Former world champion Khan will be taking the first step towards getting back to the top of the boxing world after signing a three-fight deal with Matchroom Boxing.

"I can't wait to get back into the ring on April 21 at the Echo Arena in Liverpool," said Khan.

"Phil Lo Greco will be coming with everything to win this fight and I'm not going to give him an inch. He's an aggressive fighter who is always looking to press the fight and come forward.

"That makes for a very exciting and action-packed fight for the fans.

"I respect him as a fighter and know he will be coming with big ambitions, but I'm going to put on a great performance and prove to the boxing world that the 'King' is well and truly back."

Lo Greco has shared the ring with current IBF world welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr and former holder, Shawn Porter.

Khan's return is part of a huge night of action on Merseyside as Birkenhead's Sean 'Masher' Dodd defends his Commonwealth Lightweight title against Tommy Coyle, and former Team GB Olympians Natasha Jonas and Anthony Fowler and unbeaten super-welterweight Scott Fitzgerald are all in action.
