Brook: Even American Fighters Want To See Me Face Amir Khan!

Former IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (36-2, 25 KOs) is going to push very hard to get Amir Khan (31-4, 19 KOs) in the ring this year.

Both boxers are now promoted by Matchroom after Khan signed on with Eddie Hearn earlier this month.

Brook is set to return to the ring in March, in his junior middleweight debut against top contender Sergey Rabchenko.


While Khan is coming back on April 21 at Echo Arena in Liverpool against an opponent to be determined.

Now that both of them are signed on with the same team, Brook sees no reason for the Khan fight not to take place in 2018.

"Amir Khan has just signed with Matchroom, that’s picked me up again because we might finally get it to work and fight each other. I would like to close the book on boxing with his name in it," Brook told Betsafe.

"I’m proud of my name in the hat that everyone in British and world boxing wants that fight and excited about it. It’s the biggest fight in world boxing, two British fighters showdown, especially with me and him at each other throats for over 10-15 years. Even top fighters in America want to see us fight, and that’s what’s frustrating because I’m willing and I think now Amir is willing to get the fight across the line. But, we’ve both got to fight first and build-it up and then it will happen.”

Brook admitted that he nearly retired after getting knocked out last May at the hands of Errol Spence - which also saw the Sheffield boxer suffer a fractured orbital bone that required surgery and put him on the shelf for the remainder of the year.

"It takes time to recover, I even contemplated retiring, I was that low but there's so much left of me and there’s certain performances I need to top and certain fighters I need to fight before I close the book on it. I’ve not done that yet, so there’s much more to come from me," Brook said.
