Khan Wants Brook Following September Fight
Amir Khan has an ideal scenario for he and Kell Brook, and it involves patience.
Khan is willing to be on the same card as his domestic rival in September, while dangling the carrot of a fight for 2019.
Khan, who made a splash in his return fight in April, when he stopped Phil Lo Greco in just 40 seconds, hopes for bigger fights following his next fight alleged for the fall.
“I want to fight again in September, and I want to come back with a big bang again,” Khan exclusively told Sky Sports.
“I’ve had my time off. I was out of the ring for two years, and I’ve come back the way that everyone wanted to see me come back. It’s time for me to get another fight in, and then let’s see where this goes.”
Asked about being on the same card with Brook, Khan said: “That can happen. Why not?
“I’m the bigger name, and I sell more than what Kell would do. I think I’m No 1 anyway, so let’s see.
Following Khan’s win over Lo Greco, Brook confronted the Bolton born boxer in the ring. Now, Khan wants to see what he and Eddie Hearn can put together involving both fighters on the same bill.
“Is that what Eddie [Hearn] wants? If Eddie wants that, I don’t mind being on the same bill as him. Him being on the undercard, that’s fine, or we could both be two chief support fights, Khan told SKY Sports.
In regards to other potential opponents, Khan thinks Adrien Broner coming to the United Kingdom could be “massive.”
“I want a bigger step-up. It’s hard to say name-wise who I could face. Broner. I would like to fight Broner next if I could. Broner would be good, [Jessie] Vargas would be good. I would school him. He’s not at my level. I would destroy him.
Yet, it all comes down to what Khan and Hearn decide when they finally meet in the next few weeks.
He had told Sky Sports: “We’ll talk about it. I think both guys want to box again in the summer, and then that fight should be one we try to make in November or December.”
