Flattened by a left hook in the fourth and staggered by the same punch in the eighth, 10th and 11th rounds, Khan (28-3, 19 KOs) most recently escaped from the squared circle last month with a unanimous decision triumph over determined Mexican Julio Diaz.
Comparatively, the 27-year-old Brook (29-0, 19 KOs) last vacated the ring on October 20 with a third round TKO victory over Argentinean Hector David Saldivia.
“To be honest, I think Kell needs to prove himself,” Khan, 26, told The Sun. “I’ve got my dreams and my goals I want to reach. As long as I reach my goals and fight who I want to fight, I’m happy with that. I’ve proven myself with the likes of Andriy Kotelnik and Marcos Maidana, winning numerous world titles. Three times I’ve won the world title as a light-welterweight. I’ve won the WBA Super, the WBA and the IBF world titles. At the moment, he’s not even on my radar or on my mind. He’s just someone who talks about me all the time – and I just let it be.”
A 2004 Olympic silver medalist, Khan is a human chandelier capable of getting floored at any moment with one decisive shot to the kisser.
Although one of the most youthful British world champs ever at the age of 22, “King Khan” is simply an overrated prizefighter with a fragile chin.
Meanwhile, Brook has decent talent and is blessed with more than enough power to knock Khan onto Queer Street.
“To be honest,” in an exciting scrap, Kell Brook would render Amir Khan unconscious within 10 rounds.by
