Amir Khan and Kell Brook will finally meet in February.
Khan and Brook have been linked to a fight for quite some time now, and the fight is targeted for February 19th in Manchester, England. The event will also be on pay-per-view and according to various reports, the purse split has been agreed to but other areas still need to be worked out. The reports say the issues are minor and something that won’t hinder the fight.
With Khan and Brook being agreed to, many fans are excited about the fight. Eddie Hearn recently said the fight is years too late and the interest is no longer there.
Amir Khan (34-5) returned to the win column back in July of 2019 as he TKO’d Billy Dib. Prior to that, he suffered a sixth-round TKO loss to Terence Crawford for the WBO welterweight title. The 34-year-old is the former WBA light-welterweight champion and WBC silver welterweight champ among other belts and holds notable wins over Zab Judah, Samuel Vargas, and Luis Collazo. He also competed against Canelo Alvarez and Danny Garcia in his career.
Kell Brook (39-3) hasn’t fought since he suffered a fourth-round TKO loss to Terence Crawford back in November of 2020 for the WBO welterweight title. Prior to that, the 35-year-old was on a three-fight winning streak which snapped his two-fight skid as he suffered knockout losses to Errol Spence Jr., and Gennady Golovkin. He’s the former IBF welterweight champion and holds a notable win over Shawn Porter.
