Amir Khan vs. Kell Brook in Spring 2017 a Possibility
Amir Khan vs. Kell Brook
Amir “King” Khan could finally end up facing Kell “Special K” Brook in 2017. The two British superstars have been engaged in a war of words over the past few years, but have now appeared to be interested in actually fighting.
Amir Khan, who is coming off of a devastating knockout loss to Canelo Alvarez at 155, has stated recently that he would fight Kell Brook if “the Special One” were to drop back down to 147 (Brook beefed up to 160 for a bout with middleweight champ Gennady Golovkin earlier this year) after previously saying he would not give Brook a fight because he disliked him so much.
Brook, who is recovering from a knockout loss to Golovkin in which he broke his eye socket, told Sky Sports that he would indeed drop back down to 147 if a name like Amir Khan was involved. So, with all of that being said, fans can expect a fight between the two stars to happen as early as Spring 2017. If not, look for Brook to start a new campaign at 154 pounds while Khan sticks to 147.
