Hearn: Khan & Brook May Fight In December
With Amir Khan and Kell Brook set up for fights this summer, Eddie Hearn is looking to clear a path for Amir Khan and Kell Brook to finally face off.
Rivals Khan and Brook both return later in the summer against Samuel Vargas and Brandon Cook respectively, and Hearn looks towards what’s next for each fighter.
“After [their next fights], we’ll be looking to get that fight signed. It’s the biggest fight out there,” Hearn told Sky Sports.
“…They will kick themselves forever unless they get it over the line…Fingers crossed – December, if they can both keep winning, we’ll get there for Khan vs Brook.”
Brook is a featured fight on the Dillian Whyte and Joseph Parker undercard on July 28th, while Khan squares off with the Canadian, Vargas, on September 8th.
Khan said this week about Brook: “I’m the one who made this fight closer, I made a deal with Eddie (Hearn) and Matchroom, hopefully, to get this one done.
“When he first started calling me out, no one really paid attention, I let him bark and talk, now he’s getting out of his boots and needs to be put in his place.
“But it has to be at 147lbs, if that fight is going to happen then it happens at 147lbs.”
