The press conference between Amir Khan and his Canadian opponent Phil Lo Greco suddenly erupted this morning following remarks made by the Canadian in relation to Khan’s wife.
A few months previously Khan had publicly accused heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua of having an affair with his wife, something that was denied by both parties and later resulted in Khan publicly apologising to Joshua.
However, Lo Greco wasted no time in using the situation to get under his opponent’s skin, resulting in Khan throwing a glass of water at Lo Greco, as seen courtesy of Matchroom sport below

With Frampton Vs Donaire due to air on Boxnation/BT Sport on the same night as Khan’s return at the Echo Arena, Liverpool on April 21st, you wonder whether this is all just a bit of pantomime to try and attract more viewers.
Following the incident, Khan has promised to dish out some punishment to Lo Greco as he looks to re-establish himself among the top fighters in the division on April 21st.
