UK boxer Amir Khan recently spoke to Talksport. The former World Champion discussed a number of topics during the interview, including his want for a fight against Kell Brook in 2021.
This fight has been in discussion for almost six years, with fans now believing that we will likely never see it come to fruition.
‘Everyone wants to see the Kell Brook fight” Amir Khan began. “We’ve been talking about it for years and years. Look, me and Kell are probably past our best, I’ll be honest. But at the same time, we’re both around the same age.”
“I think it’d be a good fight between us to see still who the number one is in Britain” Khan continued. ‘So I called Eddie Hearn and I said, ’˜Let’s make it happen.’ Eddie said, ’˜No worries,’ spoke to Kell’s family and Kell’s father wasn’t interested in it, he said, ’˜No, we’re gonna look at other options.’”

‘What other option is there for Kell Brook to make a good payday and fight someone with a big name like myself?” Khan questioned. “Unless he fights someone with a world title or in America. So I’m scratching my head man, I’m thinking like, ’˜What’s he going through?’ What’s going on with Kell Brook? How come he doesn’t want the fight? Let’s make it happen.’
Khan finished by saying that he has two choices for opponents going forward. “The only two fights out there for me in my opinion is Kell Brook or Manny Pacquiao” Khan claimed. “Your body is breaking and you need to call it a day one day. So I am giving it the last, last chapter of my boxing career. I get either fight and I call it a day.”
‘The prediction for me and Kell Brook?” Khan concluded. “I knock out Kell Brook in under six rounds.’
