Check out the first official poster below:
It’s a fight that has been called for by the public for years and although it’s happening with both fighters well past their prime, there’s still a big interest in the fight.
There’s also plenty of animosity between the pair as evidenced by their faceoff during the press conference today.
Khan is coming off a TKO win over Billy Dib back in July 2019.
Brook, meanwhile, last suffered a fourth-round TKO defeat to Terence Crawford in their welterweight title fight back in November last year.
