AMIR Khan insists he is pushing for a long-awaited fight with Kell Brook.

The pair may be past their primes, but a meeting between two of the best of their generation would still carry a level of interest among British fight fans.

As has been the case for several years both camps have pointed the finger at the other when it comes to why the fight has not materialised before now.

With the pair now both 34, it is certainly a case of now or never for Bolton’s Khan and Sheffield favourite Brook.

“What’s the fight that everyone wants to see? Everyone wants to see the Kell Brook fight. We’ve been talking about it for years and years,” Khan told TalkSport.

“Look, me and Kell are probably past our best, I’ll be honest. But at the same time, we’re both around the same age. I think it’d be a good fight between us to see who is still number one in Britain.

“So I called (Matchroom Boxing chief) Eddie Hearn and I said: ‘Let’s make it happen.’ Eddie said:‘No worries,’ spoke to Kell’s family and Kell’s father wasn’t interested in it, he said: ‘No, we’re gonna look at other options.’

“What other option is there for Kell Brook to make a good payday and fight someone with a big name like myself? Unless he fights someone with a world title or in America.

“So I’m scratching my head man, I’m thinking like, ‘What’s he going through?’

“What’s going on with Kell Brook? How come he doesn’t want the fight? Let’s make it happen.”

Should it finally come to pass, Khan – who last fought when beating the over-matched Billy Dib in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia in July 2019 – is in no doubt about the outcome.

He added: “The prediction for me and Kell Brook?

“I knock out Kell Brook in under six rounds.”
