Kell Brook, who presently holds the WBA version of the inter-continental title, believes he can school former IBF and WBA light welterweight titlist Amir Khan in the ring if he ever squares up with his fellow countryman.
The Bolton man, who is more commonly known as King Khan, desperately wants to set up a mega-fight with the undefeated American legend Floyd Mayweather junior, who is the current WBC Welterweight Champion, WBA (Super) Light Middleweight Champion and recipient of the WBC Diamond belt.
However, Brook feels Khan is a complete no match for the American boxing icon.
“Khan can’t beat Mayweather,” he said. “I don’t know if it will happen but he can’t beat him. He’s got no chance.”
Khan lost his title to Danny Garcia on July 14. He also lost last year to Lamont Peterson. In both of these fights Khan was a heavy favorite and perhaps this is a reason why Brook feels he can also beat Khan in the ring.
“He’s been dropped by super-featherweights. He’s been dropped a few times. I’m a big kid. I’m accurate, I’ve got speed, I’ve got his number.
“When we do meet he’s going to get taken out.
While speaking on his inclusion, the undefeated prospect, who holds a record of winning all of his 28 professional fights, with 18 of his wins coming by the way of a knockout, claimed that he always dominated Khan in their sparring sessions and he can do the same now too.
“We sparred as amateurs and I schooled him. I’ve heard him say the same thing but if we could go back to the coaches who were there they’ll tell you exactly what happened.”
“I’m more known now and I get stopped when I go out, but I’m still the same person,” he said.
“There are a lot of so-called friends around but I’ve got a group of friends who’ve been there since day one and they’re my genuine friends.”
Let’s wait and watch how Khan responds to Kell Brook.
