Kell Brook still can't believe that his bitter domestic rival, former champion Amir Khan, is potentially securing a very lucrative fight against the biggest name in the sport, Floyd Mayweather Jr. Brook does not give Khan any shot to win the contest. Mayweather has not announced his opponent, but a return date is scheduled for May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
"He's got no chance against Mayweather," said Brook to Sky Sports. "I don't believe he deserves the shot, but he's got that image, he's well known, it makes business sense. Khan's got good speed, but I just think Mayweather's seen it all. He's an accurate counter puncher - he's not the biggest puncher - but you don't need to be the biggest puncher to knock Khan out. I've pictured the fight and I think that Khan will rush in, he'll counter it Mayweather, and he'll walk onto one."
Brook would love to get Khan in the ring, in a fight where Brook is confident he will win by knockout.
"I just want to put the record straight and I know for a fact that I'll knock him out," he said. "I wish him all the best in the fight but it's a business. If we do fight I'll be taking him out and that's a fact."Tags: Amir Khan , Floyd Mayweather Jr. , Kell Brook , Mayweather-Khan , Mayweather vs Khan
