Brook: No Time For Time-Waster Like Amir Khan, He Talks Crap

Kell Brook has no plans to entertain any further talk from his domestic rival Amir Khan.

Brook has made attempts to face Khan for several years.

Every time the two boxers appeared to be getting close to coming together, Khan would go in another direction by taking on another assignment.


Khan will return to the ring on July 12th, when he faces former featherweight world champion Billy Dib in Saudi Arabia.

During recent interviews, Khan has once again mentioned Brook as a potential opponent for the near future. 

"The Brook fight is still out there, definitely," Khan told Sky Sports News earlier this month. "In Britain it would be a huge fight.

"There are still a lot of fights that [promoter Eddie Hearn] can make for me. I want to fight the top names."

But this time around Brook is not interested in anything that Khan has to say.

"Amir Khan doesn't want the fight, he talks crap," Brook told Sky Sports. "I haven't got time for time wasters."

Back in 2016, Brook thought they were close to a deal - but then Khan moved up by two weight divisions to face middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez. Khan was knocked out cold in six rounds.

Khan was off for two years, and then came back in 2018 with a promotional deal with Eddie Hearn - who also handles Brook.

With both under the same promoter, everyone expected that a deal would finally come together.

But that didn't happen.

Instead of facing Brook earlier this year, Khan went into the direction of taking on WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford. Khan was stopped in six rounds.

Brook will return in the coming months. His next weight class and opponent has yet to be determined.

Comment by JakeTheBoxer on 06-27-2019

Brook, whoever he is, is the best Spence`s win. Khan, whoever he is, is the best Crawford`s win. And Porter is just another guy that Brook beat. So, what else to say about this "elite" American welterweights? If brook and…

Kell and Amir need to get married already. Kell Brook is lying out of his teeth he is desperate just like Khan for a Payday. Brook doesn't want to sound desperate that's why he's saying this,, but if Hearn offers…

i agreed with brook here... at this point, brook will be the a-side if this fight ever happens. khan has been so out of it that he doesnt even have any room to call any shots.
