Brook: Confident I'll Beat Queen Khan, Rabchenko is 50-50 Fight

Kell Brook (36-2, 25 KOs) is very confident that he'll beat his domestic rival, Amir Khan (31-4, 19 KOs), but the first order of business is to overcome Sergey Rabchenko on March 3rd in Sheffield.

The fight with Rabchenko will be Brook's debut at the junior middleweight limit and his first contest since losing his IBF welterweight title when he was stopped last May by Errol Spence.

After years of failed negotiations, a fight with Khan took a big step in the right direction when the Bolton boxer signed a promotional agreement a few weeks ago with Eddie Hearn, who's been handling the career of Brook for several years.

Khan will return on April 21 in Liverpool. It's Khan's first fight since getting knocked out by Canelo Alvarez in May of 2016.

"Surely it must happen this year. He's saying it could be the third fight. I've been ready for a long time. Now we're together in the same camp, let's make it happen baby. Let's make it happen. We're going to sit down, piles of money in the pot, and we sort it out when the time comes. When that fight is ready to happen. We're all going to sit down and make it happen. Make it rain. That could be at catchweight, we don't know," Brook said.

"Until we're ready to fight and everyone is 100 percent it's going to happen, then we can decide on what the weight is and the ins and outs of it. Of course I am very confident of beating Queen Khan. I'm very confident of that."

While Brook is very confident of beating Khan, he's very well aware of the danger presented by Rabchenko.

The two boxers have sparred in the past, and Brook is not afraid to reveal that he was taken to his limit by the Eastern Euro fighter.

"It's a massive threat," said Brook. "It's a 50-50 fight, believe it or not. This guy, I've had life and death with him in sparring, he's very tough. This is his golden ticket, him beating me. He's coming to win, so I'm excited."

Spence was the new Lacey but this is a 50-50?? this is gonna be a blow out if brook is mentally stable thats why they keep fluffing it up in all the interviews.

If he went life and death in sparring against a guy who lost to Harrison, who himself lost to Willie Nelson, well... that shows you at what level Brook is!
