Amir Khan and Kell Brook have arranged a date for their fight, which will take place at the AO Arena in Manchester on February 19, 2022.

The rivalry between the two has been going on for many years now, as back in 2010, when Khan held the WBA super-lightweight title, Brook called out the champion.

Then in October 2012, the fighters sat side-by-side on Sky Sports boxing show Ringside and relayed their own stories about how they had beaten each other in sparring sessions.

At a media conference that announced the fight that anger between them came to a head again as they butted their heads together during a face-off which required security guards to haul them apart.

The fight will be on pay-per-view in the UK under the Boxxer promotion.

Brook, 35, spoke to Sky Sports about the fight and said it would be the "final time" that Khan would hit the deck.

He added: "He's always veered off, never given me respect, never acknowledged me.

"He has said: 'Win a world title then I will fight you, fight this guy then I will fight you'.

"It has got to a part of his career where there is nowhere else for him to run.

"I have wanted it for many years."

Meanwhile, Bolton-born Khan, 34, took aim at Brook in repsonse.

He said: "In the past 10 years I have fought two of the best pound-for-pound best fighters.

"I have never run from Kell. I have never needed to.

"What I have achieved speaks for itself.

"There is no point crying about the past. In the past he hasn't deserved this fight.

"Come February 19 it will be time to see if he can back those words up."
