Kell Brook Pumped: Queen Khan is Going To Get It!
Kell Brook won a world title at the first time of asking on Saturday and is now homing in on a domestic grudge match with Amir Khan.
The Sheffield man took on one of the most daunting challenges available to a British fighter - a world title fight against an unbeaten American in his own country - and came out on top.
He beat Shawn Porter via a majority decision in California to take the IBF welterweight belt in his 33rd career fight without defeat.
Throughout his time as a professional Brook has called out Khan - a former Olympic and world champion - but the Lancastrian has snubbed him on account of his rival having not proven himself at the top level.
Now, though, Brook is the man at the top of the tree when it comes to British welterweights and he hopes the time has come for him to get his man.
Khan analysed Brook's win on television in the early hours and was quickly told to step forward and take on the new champion.
"The fact is, he is going to get it," Brook said of Khan on Sky Sports.

"I know he's back there in the studio watching; listen, you're getting it next boy. I am the champion of the world.
"The British public want to see it. He will probably start saying something else now, that I need to win another world title. But believe me, Queen Khan is getting it. He's been putting things on Twitter, bless him, putting 'best of luck', but I know he doesn't like me."
Khan - whose career has slowed down somewhat after his failure to land a stellar fight with Floyd Mayweather - is returning to the ring in December, with Devon Alexander mooted as his next opponent.
The Bolton man now appears to be keen for a bout with the boxer who has long courted him, though.
I think Brook is right, Khan will find another excuse not to take the fight such as demanding too much money while claiming to be the superstar bringing in the revenue. If they do fight, I would favor Brook by…Comment by LAPete on 08-18-2014
This fight is a Career Game Changer for Kahn. He needs to immediately focus, train his ass off and NOT fall prey to the name calling and s#it talking that is about to go down. It's going to be psycho…Comment by Dat on 08-18-2014
Will The Queen be singing "We are the champions" and "Another one bites the dust" in the end, or will the lyrics "I want to ride my bicycle" be all that she wrote? LOLComment by jbpanama on 08-17-2014
[QUOTE=cameltoe;14865970]Brook was calling out Khan back when Khan was campaigning at 140 and Brook had fought no one bar domestic level opponents. Khan quite rightly told him to shove it and that he needed to prove himself first. Khan was…Comment by Dr Rumack on 08-17-2014
[QUOTE=bojangles1987;14865769]I f*cking love when there is legit dislike between fighters.
