Amir Khan and Kell Brook are continuing to throw digs at one another outside the ring but it would appear that Kell Brook is currently in the lead in terms of public support and opinion.
Brook is slated to fight next on December 8th against an opponent to be named but blame has been thrown around in various quarters from both teams.
In terms of who is to blame for the hold up in the fight between Khan and Brook which fingers crossed, will happen in the new year.
Khan for his part has told Brook this:
Really! You mention me in all your interviews saying ‘i want to fight khan next. All the crying you do, then u go and fight another bum ?. What’s the delay Kelly? Your a joke. Ps You better not lose in December!
‘I won’t be ringside!’ https://t.co/JJPZW7tAxG

Fans appear to be revolting against the above so far though, in a move that appears to have backfired PR-wise:
Hes offered you the fight at 147 and your having another tune up fight that nobody wants to see

The real question here is ‘Are you too shook for Brook?’
