Kell Brook: Queen Amir Khan needs to step up and stop talking bollocks!
Welterweight contender Kell Brook has his sights set on a massive UK bout with Amir Khan as media buzz continues to build with both fighter’s seeking a high-profile opponent.
Brook, 27, is lined up to fight on March 15 in Liverpool in what is seen as a warm-up fight for a sterner test in the summer, with the Yorkshireman seeing Khan, also 27, as the best possible option.
Khan has so far been dismissive of ever sharing a ring with ‘The Special One’ and recently took to the British airwaves to state that Brook is not even on his radar following his Floyd Mayweather disaster, something that did not go down well with his unbeaten rival.
“Stop talking, bollocks queen Khan and step up. The public wants the fight, you chump,” said Brook.
Contrary to Khan’s beliefs on the clash, a fight between him and Brook is in high demand on British shores, with promoter Eddie Hearn even tabling an offer of £3 million to the former world champion this week to face his fighter next.
It looks nailed on that Khan will want a Stateside name for his next outing to aid his bid to revive a fight with Floyd Mayweather in September, a move that would once again disappoint Brook and his army of fans.
