Kell Brook Very Confident: I'll Destroy Amir Khan!

By Elliot Foster

KELL BROOK is confident of “destroying” Amir Khan should the pair meet in the ring.

The Sheffield man was ringside at the ECHO Arena on Saturday to witness his British rival’s 39-second demolition of Phil Lo Greco.

The long-term foes were brought together in the post-fight interview following Khan’s Sky Sports-televised stoppage of the Canadian visitor.

Khan ended a five-year absence from a UK ring to a heroes’ welcome in Liverpool.

And the former world champion insisted he is 'chasing' Brook after joining him in Eddie Hearn's promotional stable, but then left the ring before they could discuss a domestic clash.

But Brook disagrees and doesn’t believe Khan, 31, wants any part of a fight with him after he won on his super-welterweight debut back in March, stopping Sergey Rabchenko inside two rounds at Sheffield’s FlyDSA Arena to claim the vacant WBC Silver title at the weight.

"Amir, come on, Amir," shouted Brook, who moved up in weight after losing his IBF welterweight title to Errol Spence Jr. by stoppage last May. "All the fans want the fight. I want the fight. He can go in the jungle and chase stars, but when he gets in there with me, I'll make him see stars.

"I know he's got very fast hands. I've sparred with him. He's got the fastest hands I've been in with. Timing beats speed, I'm a seasoned pro, I will land that bomb on him, that brownie. I'll destroy him.”

Promoter Eddie Hearn, who now represents both Khan and Brook after the man of the moment agreed to link up with the Matchroom head for his comeback, says that the fight will always be there.

“People ask me if Khan has still got speed but he might be even quicker than before. He will be in massive fights in the UK.

"The British public want to see Khan against Brook and I want to make it happen. They want to bash each other up.”

The plan now seems to get both fighters out in similar level outings in June or July before a deal is thrashed out for a fight towards the end of the year.

[QUOTE=English Lion;18698037]Haha you used to comment on every Khan thread day in and day out about how Brook smashes Khan at 147...now your confidence is low? Brook was left hanging like you do when you are waiting for your date…

Khans cheque is in post for ggg and spence for softening brook up. Khan will aim for eye socket like no boxer has in history.

[QUOTE=LacedUp;18697986]It has nothing to do with Khan's performance. Obviously he looked good, but my confidence in Brook making 147 healthy is very low. Khan couldn't shatter his way through a wet paper bag, let alone Brook's eye socket. But first…

[QUOTE=English Lion;18696713]lmao lad, you have absolutely changed your mind on this haven't you? Khan's victory last night has got you absolutely rattled. Not to mention the fact he completely made a mockery of your role model Brook in front of…
