Kell Brook: Amir Khandashian Is Still There

IBF Welterweight champoion Kell Brook is back in the gym after his destruction at the hands of Gennady Golovkin last September. The 30 year old talked to Sky Sports recently about his future plans. Said Brook:

"We’ve got some big names, we’ve got Amir Kardashian. He’s still there."

The Special One also mentioned the names of Manny Pacquiao, Danny Garcia and Keith Thurman as possible foes but the one name that really stands out among the group is Amir Khan.

Brook and Khan have been going at it for years, at least verbally. The bout between these domestic rivals have been talked about countless times but it's never been close to being made. Last year, many though the bout would finally happen. But Khan chose to fight Canelo. Then this year, Brook decided to challenge Golovkin. Both ended up getting knocked out: Khan kissing the canvass cold and Brook getting his eye socket fractured. Now, their paths seem to lead them back to each other once again.

Khan re-ignited the talks by saying last month that he would definitely fight Brook but at 147. In previous months, Brook didn't say if he would return to welterweight but there were talks that he could be moving up to 154. 

Now Brook says that Khan should man up and sign a deal for the much awaited all-British showdown in 2017:

"People are talking about me and him fighting. He said that he’d like to have that fight and I can say I’ll meet him at welterweight if he wants to actually get in and stop talking about it. We need to sit down, get it signed and get it done for the fans.”

A Brook vs Khan bout in England would be massive. But will Khan back his talk and fight Kell Brook at 147 pounds? And is Kell Brook serious about going back to 147 for Amir Khan? Stay tuned for the next episode of Keeping Up with the Khandashians.
