Khan Laughs at Brook: I Knew He'd Avoid Alexander

By Edward Chaykovsky

In a recent interview with The Sun, former champion Amir Khan lashed out at his British rival Kell Brook. Khan claims that he knew a long time ago that Brook would never go forward with a planned fight against IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander.

“He was meant to fight for a world title against Alexander and he pulled out, which I knew all along he would do. I thought it was a tough fight for him to take — and he’s not one of those guys who would take a tough fight," Khan told the paper.

The fight was canceled three times due to injuries. Brook withdrew twice, and now Alexander will face Lee Purdy on May 18th in Atlantic City.

Brook has been calling for a Khan showdown for the last two years, but Amir is not interested.

“I think the only reason he’s calling me out is to get that one big payday, whereas I don’t need to fight him to prove anything. I’m a class above him but he’s going to say what he wants, which doesn’t bother me. Whatever he wants to say, he can say," Khan said.

[QUOTE=ma51f;13345775]He's managed Brooke poorly. Fighting bum after bum and than all of a sudden fighting Alexander.. Needs to fight inbetween those levels first, gradually first... I honestly think he doesnt care about Brooke that much[/QUOTE] I think the Carson Jones…

Khan sure does like talking trash about Brook yet he is clear he doesn't want to fight him. After getting rocked by career LW Diaz I can see why. I don't wanna give Amir too much of a hard time…
