Amir Khan’s press conference antics prompts dig from Carl Frampton

Boxing at SSE Arena Belfast

Amir Khan returns to the ring for the first time in under two years when he comes face-to-face with Phil Lo Greco on April 21 in Liverpool.

The former world champion has been out of action since losing to Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez back in May 2016.

If Khan’s return wasn’t enough to whet the appetite, the fight now promises to be even more of a tasty encounter following their press conference on Tuesday.

This is because the pair had to be separated after Lo Greco dished out comments about his opponent’s personal life following his last fight.

His antics later prompted Khan to throw water over the 33-year-old as the press conference boiled over.

Their bout on April 21 won’t be the only fight to take place that day, as Carl Frampton takes on Nonito Donaire in Belfast.

However, their press conference, which took place two weeks ago, had a very different vibe to it.

The pair weren’t involved in any altercation and Frampton was quick to point that out on Twitter following the scenes at the Khan-Lo Greco press conference.

The 30-year-old posted a picture of him and Donaire shaking hands with the caption: "Meanwhile...No hype required #FramptonDonaire."

Former WBA and IBF super-bantamweight champion Frampton last took to the ring on November 18 where he came out on top against Horacio Garcia.

The SSE Arena in Belfast hosted that bout and home advantage will be on Frampton’s side again come April 21.

Donaire, however, hasn’t fought since September 23, but will also go into the fight on the back of a victory, beating Ruben Garcia Hernandez in Texas.

April 21 will undoubtedly be a mouth-watering day for everyone associated with boxing, however, it is still unclear to predict which fight will provide the most drama.

If press conferences are anything to go by, though, it will certainly be Khan vs Lo Greco.
