Boxer Amir Khan and Kell Brook have a genuine, very real dislike of one another. Over the years the two have shared no love lost and now could be set to finally fight.
Promoter of the pair Eddie Hearn recently stated that he is aiming to make the long-awaited fight this coming December in a massive stadium fight at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
Initially it was understood that if the fight happened it would be at a catchweight but as time has gone on, Hearn has said that Brook would need to fight Khan at his natural weight class of welterweight.
Welterweight was always, always a struggle for Brook to make over the years.
Likely this would put him at a disadvantage but that said, motivation to train and make the weight will be at an all time high for Brook in such a grudge match.
Today reporter Michael Benson reported Khan’s response when asked to sum up Brook in one word.
Here’s his response:
😳 During a word association game with @Seckbach, Amir Khan was asked to name the first thing that comes into his mind when he hears the name Kell Brook. He responded: “Pussy.”

Hopefully the fight will happen at long last later this year.
