The lover’s quarrel between Amir Khan and Kell Brook might be just fierce as the one between Floyd Mayweather and Oscar De La Hoya.

As it is now nearly assured that Amir Khan won’t be landing either of the two fights he desperately craves— against Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather — he’s faced with the prospect of having Kell Brook being the biggest fight out there for him.

And with Khan under the same promotional umbrella as Brook, negotiations have progressed further than they ever have before. That said, there are still some sticking points preventing the sides from reaching a deal.

Khan insists that Brook must come back down to 147 to fight him, to which Brook has agreed, but Khan also wants a second-day weigh-in where Brook cannot gain more than 10lbs. Khan took to Twitter today to reference a rehydration clause for the Canelo-Fielding fight to substantiate his demand.

Brook, however, scoffs at the notion...

While Khan-Brook would be a huge fight in the U.K., one has to seriously doubt if the two will ever be able reach an agreement.
