Brook Turns His Back on Khan: Forget Amir, I'll Get a Belt!

By Edward Chaykovsky

British welterweight Kell Brook (27-0, 18KOs) has turned his back on domestic rival Amir Khan. After Brook dominated Matthew Hatton on Saturday night in Sheffield, the boxer's promoter, Eddie Hearn, quickly targeted a blockbuster showdown with Khan which he insists can attract 50,000 people at an outdoor venue in England.

Khan, who faces Lamont Peterson on May 26th in Las Vegas, has little to no interest in facing Brook. That's just fine, says Brook. He plans to target any of the big names in the welterweight division.

"I want whoever I can get my hands on. I'll be watching Vyacheslav Senchenko vs. Paulie Malignaggi and Andre Berto vs. Victor Ortiz with great interest. I want to be fighting at that top table now with elite fighters. I think I've proved I deserve to be there. Forget Khan. I'm doing my own thing. I'll get a belt and will be packing big arenas out. I've done this since I was nine years old and I'm buzzing at the moment. The dream is still popping. We're still unbeaten and it's going to stay that way for a long time," Brook said.

Wait a sec... Kell is actually going to go for a belt and leave Khan where he is? Something he should have done anyway? Okay.

[QUOTE=Cab Driver;11910094]khan has alot more options then brook when he moves to 147 fact.[/QUOTE] Only because Khan is a name, not because he poses an actual threat at welterweight.

[QUOTE=The Devil;11910061]Unfortunately for the Kell Brook guy....when they are pumping up a win over Matthew Hatton (LOL) to this extreme...it means they are simply a product of hype and nothing but a major investment. Khan is the truth. Brook hasnt…
