PROMOTER Ben Shalom is sure Amir Khan will box again – but may not get a rematch with rival long-time Kell Brook

Khan, now aged 35, can activate a rematch clause after suffering a sixth-round stoppage loss to Brook in their long-awaited grudge fight in Manchester last month.

But while Shalom fully expects the Athens 2004 Olympic silver medallist to return to the ring, he is unsure whether Brook will be tempted to fight again after a career-defining victory.

Shalom, who promoted the sell-out showdown, told Sky Sports: “I think he’s [Khan] thinking about it [rematch clause], he’s still got another couple of weeks, but what I do know is he will fight again.

“I’m pretty sure that’s what he wants to do. It’s not for me as a promoter to tell a fighter when he should retire.

“He knows what went on in that ring, he knows what the lead-up was.

“Whether he fights on with myself or someone else, I don’t know, but I’m convinced Amir will fight on, or at least that’s what I’m hearing.

“But in terms of a rematch, I think the Brook v Khan rematch shouldn’t happen. I don’t think it makes sense.

“But Amir’s his own man, he’ll do what he thinks is right for his career, he’s a legend of the sport. Who am I to say what he should do?

“Obviously we’ll wish him luck with whatever he does, and if he needs us we’ll be there to help.”

On what’s next for Brook, Shalom added: “It’s hard to know. I think the current frontrunner is to retire. He had such a good performance and he’s going out on such a high.

“He said it was the best night of his career, he waited for that chance so long against Amir, he got it, he performed, and he looked a million dollars.”
