Brook: If Khan is Scared, I Should Get Pacquiao - Not Khan, Me!

Kell Brook was ringside on Saturday night in Birmingham, as he watched heated rival Amir Khan win a twelve round unanimous decision over Samuel Vargas.

The contest was much tougher than anyone had anticipated.

Khan was knocked down in the second round and he was also rocked at the end of the tenth. As the contest continued in the second half, Khan's output began to decline and he appeared to be frustrated.


The biggest fight to be made is a domestic showdown between Khan and Brook.

But, Khan is more interested in a showdown with former training partner Manny Pacquiao, who holds the WBA's "regular" welterweight title.

Khan and Pacquiao had a deal to fight each other in April 2017, but the contest fell out after the investors failed to provide proof of the necessary funds to stage the event.

Earlier this year, Khan signed a multi-fight contract with promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport.

Brook has been watch Hearn for seven years.

If push comes to shove, Brook believes the opportunity to face Pacquiao should go to him - not Khan.

“I’ve come here to stir things up,” Brook told iFL TV. “We’re both with the same team. Let’s have a Christmas special - December, me and Khan.

“I’m only after [the Khan] fight… Or Pacquiao. I’ve been with Matchroom the longest - there’s no way he’s getting that fight over me. I’ll go 147lbs [welterweight] and fight Pacquiao. Why should Amir get the fight? I’ve been with Matchroom forever.

“If he doesn’t want to take the fight [against me] because he’s scared, or whatever, I’ll fight Pacquiao. Not him - me. People need to stop asking me the question: ‘When’s [Khan v Brook] going to happen?’ Ask him. I’d love to get inside [the ring and ask]. I’ll put him on his backside if we meet.”

I believe Khan is on his last fight in the contract with Hearn, so Hearn will do everything he can to maximize his profits, since both Khan and Brook are in his stable. That means Hearn will do everything in…
