KELL BROOK is ready to win a world title to land a mega clash with British rival Amir Khan at Wembley.

The Sheffield welterweight has finally got the date for his long-awaited shot at IBF champion Shawn Porter.

Brook, 28, will take on the American in California on August 16.

And he is hoping to beat Porter and then force bitter rival Khan into a fight next year.

Khan, 27, has always said he will only face Brook if the Sheffield man wins a world title.

Brook said: "When I win that world title all the doors will open for me, people like Khan will be interested in a big fight against me.

"All of a sudden Khan will want to share a ring with me - he will have seen Froch v Groves at Wembley Stadium and realise that big domestic fights can mean big money for the boxers.

"There is a lot of dough to be earned, especially if I win the world title.

"I will become a superstar overnight and my promoter Eddie Hearn will be pushing for that fight.

"Khan will not be able to run away any more. He will have no excuses, he will have to box me or lose all credibility in the eyes of fight fans."

Brook has to get past Porter first and has had to wait weeks for the American's promoters Golden Boy and TV broadcasters Showtime to decide on a date.

The undefeated Sheffield star reckons it has all been mind games and that the champion does not want to face his mandatory challenger.

But he refuses to let it get all under his skin.

He added: "They kept messing around with the dates. They were saying September 6 to make me think I have more time.

"Maybe he thought I would take my foot off the gas and start eating too much and hitting the town.

"Mind games can't get under my skin. As long as they are not knocking on my hotel door all through the night or turning air con on to minus 20, I'll be OK.

"All the mind games show that they are worried about me. They took it to the wire signing the contract and there were other issues that went on. They don't want to fight me."

Brook won't last 6 rounds with Porter.

I honestly just think the pressure of the fight and Porter himself will get to Brook. He talks a decent game but hasn't done anything stand out in his career. I wouldn't be surprised if its a one sided beating tbh.
