Former super middleweight champion Carl Froch is shaking his head at the idea of a fight between rising welterweight contender Conor Benn and domestic veteran Amir Khan.

Khan was in action back in February, in his first bout since July of 2019, and he was stopped in what became a one-sided fight with career rival Kell Brook.

This past Saturday night at the Manchester Arena, Benn scored a two round stoppage of veteran Chris Van Heerden. Benn's level of competition has been climbing, with recent wins over experienced fighters like Chris Algieri, Samuel Vargas and Adrian Granados.

Khan was ringside at Manchester Arena this past weekend, and entered the ring to come face to face with Benn in the aftermath of his win.

Initially, Khan was looking at retirement after losing to Brook, but now he's considering his options with continuing his career; 

Khan, an Olympic silver medal winner and a former world champion, would consider a fight with Benn - for the right amount of money.

But, Froch is not in favor of that contest take place, because he believes it will end in a brutal knockout for Khan.

He would much rather see Benn step in the ring with someone like Brook, who also wants a boatload of money for such a fight.

"I like the Kell Brook fight. You mentioned the Amir Khan fight but he's only good for getting knocked out that kid; he needs to retire now," Froch stated on DAZN.

"Amir Khan needs to turn it in. I'm just being straight, I'm being brutally honest. I think he knows he's retiring. Kell Brook is a good fight."
