IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (34-0, 25KOs) did a series of interviews regarding his upcoming fight with Diego Chaves, set for October 24th in Sheffield.
During those interviews, the subject of facing his domestic rival, Amir Khan (31-3, 19KOs), came up several times.
Brook would like to get that fight in wake of Khan's recent inability to get a fight with WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., who is now set to retire following his September 12th defense against Andre Berto.
"I've heard he's willing to sit down and make that fight, but like you said that's just talk. Everybody knows that I'm there to make that fight happen. It's a massive fight," Brook told Sky Sports Ringside. "There is bad blood. Everybody knows that we would have a serious scrap."
Khan also spoke to Sky Sports during a television broadcast and accused Khan of not giving the fans what they want to see.
"He's not giving the fans that pay, what they want. He's not giving them the fight they want. I've been saying this for a long time. It's the biggest fight out there in Britain - me and Queen Khan. I don't know why he is messing about. He's been bugging Mayweather for the fight for years, he hasn't got the fight, so what's the next fight that's bigger - me and Khan," Brook said.
"I've said it from day one. I've said it that his whiskers are delicate and when this brownie hits his chin, it's going to shatter and he's going to do that dance that he likes to do. His whiskers are delicate. He's brittle. He's Bambi on ice....all rolled into one."
