Khan: If Brook Beats Alexander, Then I'll Fight Him!

By Rick Reeno

Former champion Amir Khan (26-3, 18KOs) is going to be an interested party in the welterweight collision between IBF champion Devon Alexander (24-1, 13KOs) and mandatory challenger Kell Brook (29-0, 19KOs). As BoxingScene.com first reported on Saturday, a deal was reached for an Alexander-Brook battle for January 19th in the United States. Showtime will televise.

Khan was a bit surprised when BoxingScene informed him of the agreement. He
didn't expect Brook to accept the fight with Alexander. However, if Brook manages to beat Alexander - Khan made it clear that he is "100%" on board with fighting him. Brook, and his promoter Eddie Hearn, have been chasing a fight with Khan for the last two years. If Brook beats Alexander for the title, Khan would be willing to grant his wish. Khan vs. Brook, with a world title at stake, would be a very big ticket seller in the UK.

"I think that's a great fight. I think it's a great step up for Brook, because Brook has been fighting a lower level [of opposition]. I'm surprised that he's taking the fight with Devon Alexander. Devon Alexander is a great fighter. It will be a good fight for the welterweight division and in the future I can fight the winner," Khan told BoxingScene.com.

"If he gets past Devon Alexander, then I think it makes sense to have a fight with him - and he'll have a world title [so] it makes sense to fight Brook maybe in the UK...it would be huge."

Khan returns on December 15th at the LA Sports Arena in California, taking on undefeated Carlos Molina (17-0-1, 7KOs) in a Showtime televised main event.

Alexander has fought some of the best fighter's in the division. What has Brook done? He nearly lost to a sparring partner.(Carson Jones)

Is it possible for Amir Khan to open his mouth without something stupid coming out of it? Would love to see Brook knock the clown out.

This is a win win statement for Khan who I do not think really wants to fight Brook. If Brook loses to Alexander which is highly likely Khan can say I offered to fight you but you lost to Alexander…
