British boxing is in such a good place and I genuinely can't wait to get back in that ring with the incredible home support behind me.

Founder of MyMMANews.com - After writing for Ultimate MMA magazine and serving as the editor for U.S. Combat Sports, both of which went on hiatus, I chose to venture out on my own and enlist a staff of writers and photographers that could help me achieve my goal of telling stories that would otherwise go untold.

Eddie Hearn has grand plans for Amir Khan and that doesn't just include a Khan-Kell Brook bout.

With Brook also under the same roof in Hearn's stable, the fight looks a great deal closer than at any time for the last four years.

Khan was the talk of the boxing world on Wednesday after signing with Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing and has put Spence on his wishlist as he aims to re-establish himself in the United Kingdom, having spent most of his career fighting in America.

The 31-year-old signed a three-fight deal with Hearn's Matchroom with Khan's first fight slated for April 21 at Liverpool's Echo Arena and the opponent set to be announced sometime next week.

That he has a reputation there potentially increases his value to Matchroom, who recently began expanding to America, and Khan said: "I had a lot of options but wanted my career to be in England".

"It is a bit unusual but that's where it will end". I was all over the place and the social media can make you say childish things. However, it could expedite a highly-anticipated meeting with domestic rival Kell Brook, who is also a part of Matchroom.

"The fireworks could start".
