WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford has arrived in Manchester to support his former foe, Amir Khan.
Khan will collide with his longtime domestic rival, fellow former champion Kell Brook. And their rivalry will be settled this coming Saturday night at Manchester Arena.
Crawford holds stoppage wins over both Khan and Brook.
For the upcoming fight, Khan traveled to the United States to train with Brian 'Bomac' McIntyre, who is also the head trainer of Crawford.
During training camp, Crawford sparred several times with Khan and helped him prepare.
On the other hand, Crawford was unable to give Khan any "secrets" when it comes to beating Brook.
"We have different styles. Amir is fast, he likes to box a lot. Two different styles. What he is working on against Brook is different to what I worked on. It is not the same game-plan," Crawford told Sky Sports.
Brook has been out of the ring since late 2020, when he suffered a TKO defeat at the hands of Crawford.
The unbeaten pound-for-pound boxer believes Brook still has a lot left in the tank.
"I can't speak for another man. That was a great fight. To me, he still had a lot left in him. But I caught him with a good shot," Crawford said.
"I'm here to support Amir. He has been in training with myself and my coaches. So I am just supporting a friend. Amir is ready. He has done everything that he needs to do. It should be a great fight.
"We, as fighters, lose sight of things that we should and shouldn't be doing. The most important thing in the game-plan is to be himself, to stick to what is working."
