Kell Brook pushing Amir Khan to make fight happen

Kell Brook has urged Amir Khan to accept a future fight as he wants to settle their feud with a knockout win.

The Sheffield fighter expressed his desire to face Khan after ripping the IBF welterweight belt from Shawn Porter in America on Saturday night. His bitter rival watched the points win from the Sky Sports studio and appeared to agree to the challenge, insisting he would relish the British battle after a lengthy war of words.

Eddie Hearn, Brook’s promoter, wants the pair to warm-up by fighting on the same night on December 6th, increasing public demand for a summer showdown in 2015. But Brook hopes Khan will stay true to his word and plans to inflict a crushing defeat on the Bolton man, a former world champion at light-welterweight.

He told Sky Sports News HQ: “Coming from me, you’ve heard it many times that I want the fight. You’ve heard it from him, he wants the fight. Let’s sign the contract and make it happen."
