AMIR KHAN decided to sign for Matchroom and Eddie Hearn while alone with his thoughts in the jungle of reality television series I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!

The welterweight has signed a three-fight contract with a promoter he has long spoken of his dislike for, and will return to the ring after a near two-year absence at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on April 21.

It will also be five years since Khan last fought in the UK, since when Hearn has repeatedly tempted to lure him into a fight with long-term rival Kell Brook, contributing to the tension between them.
