Amir Khan squirts on Phil Lo Greco for Anthony Joshua wife comments
It all got very lively on Tuesday as Amir Khan and Phil Lo Greco were acquainted for the first time.
The pair are set to meet on April 21 at Liverpool’s Echo Arena. Their welterweight contest has already begun to get personal.
Lo Greco traveled over from Canada. He promised his fans ‘A Roasting of Amir Khan’ at the press conference. He delivered on his promise to get under the Briton’s skin.
As soon as Lo Greco mentioned Anthony Joshua and his opponent’s wife, though, amidst accusations by the former world champion last year, Khan threw water in the direction of ‘The Italian Sensation.

Things threatened to go south quickly as both sides waded in. However, Khan and Lo Greco completed the final head-to-head without too much further controversy.
Khan, 31, is attempting to get his career back on track after a big loss to Canelo Alvarez. Lo Greco aims for back-to-back wins for the first time in six fights.
