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. "This is a press conference I thought we would never see".

'It reminded me that boxing is what I love and of my passion for becoming a champion again'. He said that next few years are going to be final years of his boxing career as he's now 31 and has few fights left.

Khan has labeled Hearn disrespectful in the past and has been continually enraged by the promoter's conduct during fight negotiations with Kell Brook.

"I'm thrilled to be teaming up with Matchroom", said Khan.

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

"That's why I picked Eddie".

Khan and Hearn haven't chosen an opponent for his April 21 fight at Echo Arena in Liverpool, England.

The Khan marriage had hit the hard place between mutual, lurid accusations with Khan alleging that his wife had an affair with world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, with whom he will now be a stablemate in Hearn's Matchroom promotions.

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

"He [Hearn] is the best in boxing, he's on top of his game at the moment and I know I can get to where I need to get to with him".

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. I have no more time to lose. Eddie will probably be my last promoter now'.

Errol Spence Jr would be happy to fight Amir Khan, who he says is a bigger name than Kell Brook.

With the two British brawlers now under the same stable it's now believed that the much-anticipated fight may finally happen this year.

Amir Khan's father Shah Khan added that his son was focused on training and getting ready for the next big fight and has the full support of all his family. And April 21 is going to be a lot of fun.
