But talking extensively with Eddie, it was clear that he and I were on the same line. I`m determined to win another World Championship and I’m sure I have what it takes to achieve it.
“I am delighted to welcome former world champion Amir Khan to Matchroom Boxing Sky Sports Boxing team,” said Hearn, stressing: “Amir is one of the most important names in the sport of boxing and his return on April 21 will be triumphant, as it will be his first fight in the United Kingdom in seven years.”
