The British boxing fans have called for both Khan and Brook to have each other for a number of years, and with both beyond their prime years, Khan finally calls out Brook for a domestic bust up.
The interested for such a fight has lost the imagination of boxing fans in the UK and around the world but still would attract enough attention for both men to earn a big payday. The fight has been spoken about since 2005 but for whatever reasons and excuses, the bout has never been agreed.
Speaking to the Khaleej Times, Khan said, ‘I think with Kell Brook, who has always been running his mouth, I think put him in his place now. I think it is about time now to put him in his place and shut him up for good’
‘I want to fight again around March or April, and there are so many names out there, there are so many deals on the table, in the Middle East as well. So, let’s see how that plays out’
When asked about any retirement plans, ‘No, no, the gloves are still on. I’m thinking of fighting probably next year. The year was a bit of a bad year for everybody and boxing was off. They wanted to fight behind closed doors. I didn’t really feel like I could motivate myself, but hopefully, if it opens up next year, we can make something happen’ said Khan.
