Amir Khan Firm: I Want Adrien Broner Next, Then Kell Brook

Former world champion Amir Khan (32-4, 20 KOs) is really eager to get in the ring with four division champion Adrien Broner.

Last month, Broner returned to the ring and fought Jessie Vargas to a twelve round draw in a bout fought at a catch-weight of 144-pounds at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Khan also returned to the ring, on the same day in Liverpool, and blasted out Phil Lo Greco in less than a minute.

The biggest fight for Khan's career is a collision with domestic rival Kell Brook, who a few months ago made his debut at junior middleweight and blasted out Sergey Rabchenko.

He's willing to do a doubleheader with Brook, in order to set up a year-end pay-per-view in November or December.

"I want to fight again in September, and I want to come back with a big bang again," Khan exclusively told Sky Sports.

"I've had my time off. I was out of the ring for two years, and I've come back the way that everyone wanted to see me come back. It's time for me to get another fight in, and then let's see where this goes. I'm the bigger name, and I sell more than what Kell would do. I think I'm No 1 anyway, so let's see. Is that what Eddie [Hearn] wants? If Eddie wants that, I don't mind being on the same bill as him. Him being on the undercard, that's fine, or we could both be two chief support fights."

Khan believes a fight with Broner would be the perfect scenario to further build a fight with Brook. If Broner rejects the fight, then Khan would be interested in Jessie Vargas, who held world titles at junior welterweight and welterweight.

It's going to take a lot of money to secure Broner for a fight on UK soil - and even a big paycheck may not be enough. And there will also be a question of weight, as Broner has been reluctant in recent years to fight any welterweight at the full division limit of 147-pounds.

"I want a bigger step-up. It's hard to say name-wise who I could face. Broner. I would like to fight Broner next if I could. Broner would be good, Vargas would be good. I would school him. He's not at my level. I would destroy him," Khan said.

"Broner is a big name, to bring him to the UK would be massive. I'm so glad to be back on British soil. That's what maybe gave me that extra push as well. Seeing that you've got your home crowd. I'm back home now and I want to stay here. My next fight here as well."

Kahn vs Broner would be interesting. I think Kahn would win a decision based on AB's low work rate and Kahn's speed. Brook vs. Kahn would be probably be the big money fight in the UK. Could go either way.

Can't wait to see both Khan and Broner doing the spaghetti-leg dance at the same time. Hope they both knock each other out. It would be an exciting fight, IMO.
