Khan Breaks Down The History of The Kell Brook Rivalry

Amir Khan would welcome a grudge match with Kell Brook and believes their rivalry could be similar to Carl Froch-George Groves.

Khans feud with Brook has simmered since they were team-mates in the England amateur squad, with both men claiming they had the upper hand in sparring sessions.

Bad blood between fighters has captured the attention of boxing fans in recent months and Carl Frochs win over George Groves drew an attendance of over 80,000 at Wembley.

A fight of that magnitude would be hard to match, but Khan believes his long awaited showdown with Brook would attract another huge audience.

Asked if his rivalry could grow to the extent of Froch-Groves, Khan told the Toe 2 Toe podcast: It can definitely.

Non-boxing fans are still tuning in and watching the fights here. Thats what we want.

We want to get the whole audience involved and watching the fights, its looking good for boxing. The numbers are getting bigger and bigger.

There are big fights for me in the future. A fight like that in the UK would be massive because weve got two guys who have that rivalry.

Were not friends but weve sparred each other. He says he got the better of me, but I know I got the better of him and he knows that deep down, but he still wont admit it.

Brook has been forced to watch the Bolton man win world titles in the 140lb division and his own world title shot against Shawn Porter could be postponed as the IBF king is yet to sign a contract.

But Khans move up to welterweight has opened the door for their grudge match and he will accept the fight once the Sheffield man proves himself at world title level.

Discussing the Porter fight, he said: Its definitely going to be a good tough fight for both fighters.

We have never seen Kell in a tough fight like the likes of Shawn Porter and other big names, but its going to tell us what Kell Brook is all about.

If he wins this fight, that definitely puts him in a good position to fight me and that fight can then happen because hes proven himself and hes a world champion.

Asked if a stoppage win over Porter would set-up the fight, he said: Even if he beats Shawn Porter, regardless of stopping him, Ill take the fight.

The pair regularly exchange taunts on social media and Khan has continued the war of words by suggesting he was told to take his foot off the gas in sparring.

I used to take it easy on him. I was told to use one hand against him in sparring, said the 27-year-old.

I was in the elite squad, even though Im a year younger than him, I was in the England elite squad. He was in the normal England squad. When we sparred, they used to say just use one hand.

He keeps saying that he used to beat me up in sparring, but why is it that I went to the Olympic games and why didnt he go to the Olympics Games instead of me, if he was better than me?

Theres a lot of lies but if a fight ever happened between me and him, it will be huge because of the rivalry and that is what the British people want to see, two British guys fighting each other.

But he has to prove himself, we cannot fight just yet. If he puts a good performance on and beats Shawn Porter, Ill take the fight.

[QUOTE=UFODI]Amir knows well what happened back then and so does the the coach, Kell is one of the most accurate punchers out of any devision and Khan is now riding on his name, Khan lost to a slow yet decent accurate puncher in Garcia, Garcia has not got half the power Kell has and kell is fast ...

Amir is praying Brook doesn't do a job on Porter.

Brook is lucky that he's getting his name mentioned in the same sentence as Khan.
