Brook/Khan - A year away says Barry Hearn

Kell Brook and Amir Khan could target world titles before British battle

The day that Amir Khan unexpectedly signed for Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing, I like many of you I'm sure had their hopes and expectations raised that this would indeed lead to a confrontation between Kell Brook, and Amir Khan. 

From the outside looking in, it seems as though there is a genuine desire to put this long-standing spat to bed, from Kell Brook's perspective. Amir Khan has always talked the talk, and he's walked the walk. Just ask Marcos Maidana. So the reality that Khan is afraid of Brook is farfetched. So just why is there not a bigger summer event circled in red on a summer date in all of our calendars ... or at least a reminder on our phones.

According to Matchroom Chairman, Barry Hearn the reason is simple. They want to pursue world titles at their respective weights once more. 

With his entry into the super-welterweight division, Kell Brook is already one of the biggest names in the division. And, following his two-round demolition job of Sergey Rabchenko, he is highly ranked by all of the world's major governing bodies. Both WBC champion, Jermell Charlo and IBF & WBA 'Super' champion, Jarrett Hurd have been active in calling out the Sheffield man. As you may recall me saying earlier in the week, should Eddie Hearn persuade either champion to fight in the UK, then Brook is by far the most lucrative payday as a challenger for both men. 

Despite his time out of the sport, Amir Khan remains one of the divisions biggest names. He is well known on both sides of the pound, and due to his somewhat apparent 'soft chin,' the champions at the 147-pound limit are no doubt rubbing their hands together at getting a big name on their resume. There is talk that Khan could well be in line to fight the winner of the WBO title fight next month. My sense is Khan may opt to pursue a rematch with Danny Garcia, but that will involve a fight against one of the WBC's top fifteen challengers to get his name in the mix for a voluntary. 

Barry Hearn had this to say to Sky Sports about a proposed fight between the two.

"I'd love to see the fight and again it's a financial decision by both of them," They're both top, top fighters in their own division. There are an enormous amount of opportunities opening up for Kell Brook in the super-welterweight division, and equally for Amir Khan after his spectacular win.

"They have choices. The choice is - financially that they should fight each other at some catchweight compromise, because it's a huge fight for the British public, sells out a stadium, is a massive pay-per-view.

"The choice for them is - do they go and pursue their own career at their own respective weights on the understanding that fight can still happen at some time in the future.

"Unfortunately in boxing, a defeat for either devalues that fight."

So still we wait. The real danger here for any of you, like me who still retain an interest in this fight is BOTH men have to keep on winning. A defeat for either man will effectively kill any chance of a deal, or at least massively restrict any bargaining power they once had. There is enough of a debate over who is the A-side already.
