Eddie Hearn, Kell Brook’s promoter agreed with the view taken by Khan, speaking to Fighthype.com. “Both guys need an interim fight” meanwhile reaffirming his own intention to see a fight that Britain has been clamouring for; finally get made. “I’d still like to see Brook and Khan, and hopefully we can make it”
Kell Brook recently touched on the topic too after talking at an App Empire UK event, Brook was very vocal about what would happen in any potential matchup and once again opened up on the lingering animosity between the pair.”I want to get in there and beat Queen Khan up,” Brook said. “We all want to see me stood over him, saying, ‘listen, I told you. I told you.
Both Brook and Khan have suffered gruelling losses in recent memory, Khan suffering the 2016 RING MAGAZINE knockout of the year at the hands of Canelo Alvarez, whilst Brook had his IBF World Welterweight Championship brutally ripped from him in his hometown of Sheffield at the hands of the rising star, Errol ‘The Truth’ Spence. These losses have of course reduced the radiance going into the potential matchup but it remains one of the most desired fights that people want to see, particularly in the U.K.
