Brook on Amir Khan: I Would Knock Him Clean Out!

By Chris McKenna, courtesy of The Daily Star

KELL BROOK is ready to give up his world title shot to land a clash with bitter British rival Amir Khan. The Sheffield star has also blasted Khan for chasing a fight with pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather – telling him he does not deserve to face the American superstar.

Brook, 27, impressed on Saturday when he knocked out Ricky Hatton’s conqueror Vyacheslav Senchenko in the fourth round at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena.

The victory means the ‘Special One’ retains his ­mandatory position for the IBF welterweight title.

And he is guaranteed to fight the winner of Devon Alexander and Shawn Porter next year.

But he is ready to give up his dream world title shot to ensure he gets to face long-term rival Khan. He said: “I want the fight with Khan, the fans want the fight and it would be huge in Britain. I will knock him clean out.”

Khan, 26, is on the verge of sealing a clash with Mayweather for May next year.

But Brook’s promoter Eddie Hearn is ready to offer the Bolton boxer £3m to face his man or bring brash American WBA champion Adrien Broner to England.

Hearn said: “If it is Broner you do it at Sheffield United, if it is Khan you do it at Bolton Wanderers or Manchester United. That’s the kind of level we are talking about.”

Anyone (maybe) can KO Amir Khan. His style makes it possible and so does his chin.

[QUOTE=Wesker115;13884873]How does this fight get made though? I imagine Hearn will continue fronting by claiming that they made Khan an offer to fight in Bolton or Sheffield, but they will probably lowball him. Khan is based in the US now,…
