Amir Khan returned to boxing after an absence of almost two years with a 40 second knockout of Phil Lo Greco in Liverpool Saturday night.

The Brit, fighting in his homeland for the first time since 2013, put the 33-year-old down after catching him with a sharp right-left combination only 13 seconds in.

When asked if he is targeting a fight against Brook, Khan said: "I want to become a world champion again so I want to fight the top guys in the welterweight division. My target is to win another world title".

"I will fight Kell Brook and I will beat Kell Brook".

After the fight Khan said: "I've been out of the ring for two years".

Khan added: "I want to give the United Kingdom fans some big fights and sell out arenas and stadiums".

I think this is a good fight and will still sell our in the UK.

Brook looked impressive in his return fight earlier this year too, mind you.

Both fighters have said they want the bout but it's not going to happen immediately next up.

The long-term foes were brought together in the post-fight interview following Khan's Sky Sports-televised stoppage of the Canadian visitor. I am a stronger fighter, a better fighter. At the moment, I'm a 147-(pound) fighter. Kell Brook has been living off my name for a long time. "He's going to be fighting tonight so it would be nice to see the victor of him and [Jesse] Vargas, I think that would be a good fight at 147lb".

Another bout to sharpen the ring rust will be needed as Khan spent less than a minute inside the ropes on Saturday night before a potential stadium blockbuster with Kell Brook in October or November. This is where me and Eddie need to sit down with Kell's team.
