Over the years, the back and forth between the two Britons who share bad blood has turned into somewhat of a soap opera drama. Will they? won’t they? there has been a lot of accusations going backwards and forwards. However finally, the ice is once again beginning to thaw and the potential grudge clash in 2018 seems conceivable again.
Speaking with Sky Sports, Khan spoke about the “massive” matchup and stressed the need for it to take place, but Khan did add that it would be more prudent at this moment for both himself and Kell Brook to try and get back on the winning trail and hopefully bring a world title to the table which would, in turn, increase the profile of the fight ahead of a potential 2018 date. A significant stumbling block in prior negotiations had always been Khan’s excessively high demands, this however no longer appears to be the case as he edged any potential suitors to call his manager, Al Haymon.
