Amir Khan: I Want Adrien Broner, That Would Be a Great Fight

By Chris McKenna, courtesy of The Daily Star

AMIR KHAN is targeting a summer clash with American motor-mouth Adrien Broner.

Khan returned to the ring after two years out with a 39-second destruction of the hapless Canadian Phil Lo Greco on Saturday night.

British rival Kell Brook stormed into the ring at the Echo Arena afterwards with the pair exchanging words to stoke up the interest in a long-awaited clash.

But it is more likely both will have one more fight each before they seriously discuss a clash, with Brook set to box in July and Khan a month later.

The former light-welterweight world champion wants to step up against brash Broner, who fought to a majority draw with Jessie Vargas on Saturday in New York.

“I’d like Broner,” said Khan after his 32nd career win.

“Broner is a big name, that would be a great fight, to bring him to the UK”

“The UK market is massive now and fighters from America want to come here. I think he would take the fight.”

Khan’s team are keen for their man to get another fight under his belt before he takes on Brook or any of the welterweight world champions.

While the finish was impressive, after two years out Khan didn’t get a chance to really shake off the ring rust as Lo Greco folded with the first big punches.

Former IBF welterweight champion Brook has moved up to light-middleweight and is likely to want it at a catchweight between the two divisions.

But Khan said: “We’re close to making the fight happen because we have the same promoter now. It would be good for us both because it would seal the legacy whoever wins that fight.

“If not people will always say they should have fought each other.

“It will be like when Ricky Hatton didn’t fight Junior Witter.

“I don’t want people to say that about me, that I didn’t want a fight. I want to give my fans all the fights they want to see.”

Make it happen Haymon and Hearns! Big money fight, instant classic press conferences and will be a fun thriller! If Cunningham can get Broner to throw like he did against Vargas, maybe he can get him to throw even more!…

[QUOTE=Pan-Africanist;18699520]You’re not the first fan to watch boxing and not know what you’re watching.[/QUOTE] Why don't you make a thread and ask if Broner was being a pressure fighter against Vargas? They'd laugh you off this forum.
