WBC silver welterweight champion Amir Khan has continued to guarantee that his domestic rival, Kell Brook (32-0), will back away from a mandatory fight with undefeated IBF 147-pound champion Shawn Porter (24-0).
The fight has been ordered by the IBF, with a July date being rumored as the target for the fight, but Khan doesn't expect it to happen. He thinks Brook will continue to fight domestically, while Porter moves on with another opponent whop is highly ranked with the IBF.
"I don't think Kell has got the bottle to take a big fight like that - he's always been all talk when it comes to the big fights," Khan said to BBC Sport. "Some fighters are like that."
