Amir Khan trainer Brian ‘Bomac’ McIntyre says the 35-year-old is more than capable of stopping Kell Brook in similar fashion to Terence Crawford when they finally collide on February 19.
The two long-time rivals are set to meet at the AO Arena in Manchester, and McIntyre, who also trains welterweight star Terence Crawford, has previously been in the opposite corner to both Brits.
Crawford stopped Brook in four rounds back in November, and ‘Bomac’ believes Khan can deliver a repeat result.
“Oh yeah – I believe he can [stop Brook]. After seeing what Crawford did to Kell, I believe that Amir can do the same thing,” McIntyre told Sky Sports.
“The thing is you want to teach them all the way round, make sure he has it in the bank, just in case he’s got to go and cash that check. That’s what we say in America, it’s in the bank, it’s in the memory bank.
“So if Kell Brook does try to stay on top of him, and does have the fight on his side, he’s already ready for it, because he’s trained for it during camp, and I won’t have to say anything new to him in the corner, because we’ve already worked on it.”
