Amir Khan vows to follow GGG in ‘smashing’ Kell Brook
British welterweight contender Amir Khan has warned Kell Brook he’s coming for him after meeting up with Gennady Golovkin at the annual WBC Convention in Miami.
Khan, 30, has expressed his desire to share the ring with Brook in 2017 following years of the pair disagreeing over a possible clash and the former world champion aims to copy Golovkin in stopping ‘The Special One’.
Golovkin halted Brook in five rounds at The O2 Arena in London last September, a fight which recently received the ‘Event of the Year’ award at the 54th Convention.

With a return planned for the spring of 2017, a battle on UK soil between the staunch rivals is a distinct possibility for the autumn. As Anthony Joshua’s clash with Wladimir Klitschko is taking place at Wembley on April 29, it seems unlikely the stadium would be able to stage two massive events in the same calendar year, though.
That could mean Khan v Brook is eventually put off until 2018, and by then could take place at the 154 pound limit.
