Amir Khan is confident about the upcoming fight against his old rival, Kell Brook. The two retired world champion boxers will have a face-off on February 19th in Manchester.
Both boxers were involved in verbal clashes for years and now the much-anticipated grudge match is finally here.
Khan has recently issued a statement about Brook in an interview in which he talked about Brook as a person who speaks more and performs less. The King Khan said: “One of the reasons why I took the fight was because of the public demand. The first press conference showed that we don’t really like each other. It’s war! We’re going to go in there and it’s going to be a fight”.
Khan further told the press why he believes he will walk through the Brook showdown.
“We’re not friends and obviously we do dislike each other, but I’m going to show people why I’m the better fighter on fight night,” he said.
“When I do a clinical job on him and I destroy him people will realize he was always smoke, he was always talk.”
The 34-year-old boxer, who was last seen fighting in July 2019, is preparing hard for the contest.
“I know I’ve done everything that I’ve needed to go into this fight. I’m fit, ready and strong to win this fight. It’s going to be tough but I’m going to go in there and do what I do best,” Khan said.
“I feel sharp, I feel weight’s amazing – I’m literally there on the weight, so I can’t wait to get in the ring and fight,” added Khan.
