There’s been some buzz around a long awaited fight between rivals Amir Khan and Kell Brook. The two British fighters are currently in negotiations, but they’ve also been in this position before only for the fight to not come off.
Per a report from ESPN, Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn has requested an additional 28 days for Kell Brook to negotiate a big domestic showdown with Amir Khan before turning his attention to IBF mandatory challenger Errol Spence Jr.
"We're speaking to Khan. It could be Khan, if he wants it, but we can't promise that will happen. He wants a warm-up fight and we want to go straight into it.
"Our priority is to listen to the IBF on who we have to fight and they are telling us that will be Spence.”
Hearn goes on to say that in 28 days time, if the Khan-Brook fight hasn’t been finalized, he will begin negotiations for Brook to make his mandatory defense against Spence. Hearn is fully confident that he would win any potential purse bid for that fight.
