Promoter Eddie Hearn has had some candid words for Amir Khan, his team and regarding a potential fight with Kell Brook following Khan’s crushing knockout defeat to Canelo Alvarez.
Matchroom boss Hearn said he thinks Khan should consider his future in the sport following been knocked out in multiple weight divisions over the years as a boxer, along with questioning what Khan was doing in the ring with Canelo Alvarez in the first place.
Hearn went on to have strong words on the medical side of things also on the night, following the devastating knockout Khan suffered in Vegas last weekend.
A fight between Khan and Hearn’s welterweight charge Kell Brook has long been clamored for by British boxing fans, but it is uncertain now if that will happen following Hearn’s comments today – at least next up anyway.
No immediate fight has been penciled in for Kell Brook just yet, but it is widely acknowledged by the boxing community that it will need to be against a notable name within the sport to satisfy fan demand.
Here is the full interview Eddie Hearn gave Sky Sports News today on all of the above:
