Amir Khan calls out Kell Brook after 39-second demolition of Phil Lo Greco.

LIVERPOOL -- Amir Khan turned his attention to a fight with fellow Briton Kell Brook after beating Phil Lo Greco in 39 seconds on a devastating return to the ring at Liverpool's Echo Arena.

It had been two years since Khan last fought, when he was brutally knocked out by Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, but he made up for lost time by swiftly seeing off Canadian Lo Greco with a first-round knockout.

Lo Greco first hit the canvas when Khan caught him flush with a right and, though he got back up, it was soon over as the 31-year-old's flurry of left hands forced the end.

Khan displayed no ring rust following his hiatus and showed the hand speed which once won him a world title had also not slowed.
