Amir Khan Predicts KO Win Over Kell Brook
Amir Khan wants to throw down with Kell Brook and is planning to score the knockout.
Khan and Brook haven’t been chummy. In fact, the two have been calling for a bout. Following Brook’s TKO loss to Terence Crawford, he admitted a fight against Khan could be an enticing way to end his boxing career.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Khan said he contacted Matchroom Boxing’s Eddie Hearn in an attempt to make the bout a reality.
“What’s the fight that everyone wants to see? Everyone wants to see the Kell Brook fight. We’ve been talking about it for years and years. Look, me and Kell are probably past our best, I’ll be honest. But at the same time, we’re both around the same age. I think it’d be a good fight between us to see still who the number one is in Britain. So I called Eddie Hearn and I said, ‘Let’s make it happen.’”
Khan went on to say that if the matchup happens, he will send Brook to the canvas.
“The only two fights out there for me in my opinion is Kell Brook or Manny Pacquiao. Otherwise – I’ve been in the game a long time and when you’ve been in training camp after training camp and having almost 40 fights now.
“Your body is breaking and you need to call it a day one day. So I am giving it the last, last chapter of my boxing career. I get either fight and I call it a day… The prediction for me and Kell Brook? I knock out Kell Brook in under six rounds.”
