An All-British fight that had to take place two or three years ago could be happening in 2021.
Former unified light-welterweight world champion Amir Khan admitted he could and would be facing his bitter rival former welterweight champ, Kell Brook.
A fight between those two was a must-see TV two or three years ago, but both Khan and Brook wanted to fight other names at that time.
“I think with Kell Brook, who has always been running his mouth, I think put him in his place now. I think it is about time now to put him in his place and shut him up for good,” Khan told the Khaleej Times.
“…the gloves are still on. I’m thinking of fighting probably next year. This year was a bit of a bad year for everybody. And boxing was off. They wanted to fight behind closed doors. I didn’t really feel like I could motivate myself, but hopefully, if it opens up next year, we can make something happen. I want to fight again around March or April and there are so many names out there, there are so many deals on the table, in the Middle East as well. So, let’s see how that plays out.”
Khan, 34, hasn’t fought since July 2019 when he defeated Billy Dib. Brook, 34, was last seen in action this November when he got TKO’d by Terence Crawford.
