Brook pushes Khan for response
Kell Brook believes that a clash with Amir Khan "can happen" and has urged the Bolton fighter to take the opportunity to face him.
Brook is targeting a bout at welterweight level with Khan and believes the showdown would provide the perfect opportunity for his prospective opponent to rebuild his career following his shock defeat to Danny Garcia last month. Khan was knocked out in round four in the Las Vegas bout, losing his WBA Super Light Welterweight title and missing out on the chance to capture the vacant WBC Light Welterweight title. And he is now been challenged by the undefeated Brook, who is fresh from a hard-fought victory over up-and-coming American Carson Jones. The Sheffield-born fighter faces Argentinian Hector Saldivia in October, but is already eyeing a potential showdown with his rival from the North of England. "I think with me and Amir Khan down the line it can happen. I think all the fans want the fight to happen, I want the fight, it's down to him. I think he might need to rebuild a bit on his career after getting knocked out by Garcia, but time will tell," said Brook, who has won 18 of his 28 bouts by Knockout. "I've said for many years now that when me and him do meet I think accuracy beats speed all day, and I think I've got Amir Khan's number. So when we do meet I'd definitely be in there to take him out."
