Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn was beaming from ear-to-ear following the performance of Kell Brook on Saturday night and immediately prompted British rival Amir Khan to fight the IBF welterweight king in the summer.

Brook, 28, is set to defend his title again in June after demolishing Jo Jo Dan and Hearn is prepared to secure Wembley Stadium once again if former super lightweight king Khan fancies ending years of bad blood between the pair in what would be a UK blockbuster.

“There is a little venue available on June 13. If Amir Khan is watching, give everyone what they want,” urged Hearn to Sky Sports’ Ed Robinson after the fight.

Hearn then went on: “Everybody wants it and Amir Khan hasn’t got an opponent. He’s talking about fighters who are much less on the scales than Kell Brook.

“It’s the biggest payday of his career. It’s the biggest fight available and it’s for a world title!”

The last time a big domestic grudge match needed settling at the national stadium, super middleweights Carl Froch and George Groves duked it out in the most lucrative fight seen in the country and Hearn is obviously hoping to replicate or better that if Khan accepts his challenge.
