Amir Khan says he is ready to take on Kell Brook in a long awaited fight but is hoping they can have the fight at the home town of Manchester United. Amir Khan recently reached out to promoter Eddie Hearn so that the domestic clash of the year can finally take place. Khan’s last bout was a vicotry over Billy Dib in mid 2019 while Brook recently lost to WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford in November.
“I was on the phone to Eddie. I said, ‘Let’s get the fight made.’ We’re not getting a clear response from Kell’s team, that they want to take the fight,” Khan said. “It has been a fight that we’ve been talking about and it obviously didn’t happen because I was campaigning in America, fighting over there.”
Khan is confident that he can take on another world champion but now has his sights seton Kell Brook after having held titles in two divisions. He has failed to secure fights against Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather in the past and hopes to be successful against Kell Brook.
“There’s always been talk about Manny Pacquiao,” said Khan. “For years and years, we were talking about the Manny Pacquiao fight. We’ve spoke, we’ve negotiated deals and then it just falls through. It never happens. Same thing happened with Floyd Mayweather.”
