Kell Brook dominated and stopped his Amir Khan in an electric atmosphere at the Manchester Arena on Saturday night. Brook managed to secure the win over his bitter rival that he has long waited for and the victory ended their bitter feud.
The Sheffield former world champion dominated the Bolton former world champion from opening bell and rocked Khan numerous times. Brook was patient but relentless in his pressure and control a one sided fight which ended in the sixth round.
Brook was able to control and overcome the pre-fight emotions and pressure to win the fight, as well as the demands from team Khan. Even before the fight commenced, Brook was told to change his gloves in the ring or he wouldn’t get paid, as reportedly stated.
Khan got staggered twice in the first round and managed to withstand the Brook pressure but at the end of the fifth round, Amir looked as they he was out of his feet as he returned to his corner.
In round six, Brook landed big shots and referee Victor Loughin decided to save Khan from a potential big knockout.
Post-fight, both Conor Benn and Chris Eubank Jr called out Kell Brook for another big domestic dust up. All British fights are big business in the UK and both fight would generate much attention and finances.
