They don't agree on much, but British welterweight rivals Amir Khan (29-3, 19KOs) and Kell Brook (32-0, 22KOs) are in agreement that a fight between the two of them would produce a massive event on UK soil.

When super middleweight rivals Carl Froch and George Groves collided in a rematch back in May - 80,000 fans packed Wembley Stadium to watch them settle their differences.

Before the ball can get rolling, Brook has to overcome IBF champion Shawn Porter (24-0-1, 15KOs on August 16th at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

During a recent interview in the UK, Khan voiced his opinion on a fight with Brook - if he beats Porter - and firmly believes the match would create a Froch-Groves type of frenzy among the British fans.  

"Not many fighters would go away from home against Porter and, if Kell wins, it would put him straight in the big time. It would then definitely make sense for me and Kell to fight. We saw what Froch and Groves did at Wembley with 80,000 fans. We can also do that," Khan told The Guardian.

Brook agrees. Their rivalry has played out very publicly for the last few years. And that rivalry, says Brook, is the perfect fuel to produce another major fight in the UK.  

"I believe so, I believe so [that it can be like Froch-Groves]. A win over Porter gives me a world title and opens all the doors at the elite level...international fights and even a fight with Amir Khan. I think everybody will grab on to that fight and it will be a huge fight like Groves-Froch because there's no love lost between me and Khan," Brook told BoxingScene.com.

If Brook beats Porter he could quite easily ignore Khan...but that would involve him having to fight over in America without having the fan support & knowing he might have trouble selling tickets...so for sure he'd fight Khan...& Khan would be stupid to not take that fight if Brook can beat Porter.

This fight will sell 80,000 at Wembley. If Brook beats Porter then watch out for the Hype/. I disagree with the poster who said that Kell is not known to the casual fans, Brook is very popular himself in the Uk and way more popular than what Groves was before his fight against Froch, If Kell beat...
