Eddie Hearn reveals talks over Kell Brook and Eubank Jr fight with Amir Khan possibly missing out on grudge match

KELL BROOK could be poised for a huge all-British fight against Chris Eubank Jr.

Brook, 34, has been linked with a fight against rival Amir Khan throughout his career, but a clash has never materialised.

And now promoter Eddie Hearn is lining up the possibility of Eubank Jr taking on Brook.

Speaking to Behind The Gloves about what had been discussed with regards to Brook, Hearn said: "Nothing really. I’m talking to Kalle Sauerland about doing something with him [Kell Brook] and Eubank, and I just felt there’s history there."

Brook, a career welterweight, stepped up to middleweight in 2016 and was stopped in the fifth round by Gennady Golovkin.

Golovkin was originally set to face Eubank before negotiations fell through and Brook stepped in.

And Hearn believes that history between the two Brits could contribute to them both wanting to fight.

"Kell took the Golovkin fight, and they had some beef back talk," Hearn added.

"I think Kell must move to 154 if he’s to carry on. Eubank, of course, is at 160.

"It’s just a random fight that I quite liked.

"Then Eubank came out in the media and said, ‘That would be a good warm-up fight, a tune-up.’ Kell sort of responded, you know.

"But I’m not sure that’ll happen, but I just like it; I think it’s interesting."

Brook has lost three times in his career, to Golovkin, Errol Spence Jr and Terence Crawford.

Meanwhile Eubank, who has campaigned at both middleweight and super-middleweight, has been beaten by Billy Joe Saunders and George Groves.

Meanwhile back in December, Khan finally revealed he wants to fight Brook after several years of dismissing the Sheffield boxer.

But now it would appear the Olympic silver medallist could have missed the boat as Brook-Eubank discussions heat up.
