Kell Brook accepts Amir Khan's challenge for long-awaited fight in 2021 and says 'there's only one winner and that's me'

KELL BROOK has accepted Amir Khan's challenge for a fight this year but warned the Bolton fighter 'there's only one winner and that's me'.

Khan called out Brook with the long-awaited contest between the pair still yet to happen despite being talked up since Brook became welterweight world champ in 2014.


The 34-year-old had vowed to put Brook 'in his place' and 'shut him up for good' in 2021.

And as Khan is set for talks with promoter Eddie Hearn, British fans look like they may finally get to see the hotly-anticipated match-up.

Brook, also 34, suffered a devastating KO loss in his last bout to Terence Crawford in November, but has reiterated his desire to get the Khan fight on when talking on talkSPORT's White and Jordan show.

He said: "I don’t know if it’s a publicity stunt of if he does actually want it.

“It sounds like he does and that’s music to my ears.

“It’s a fight that everyone’s wanted for a long time, so if it does happen, happy days.

“I think it’s clear that I want the fight.

"It just caps the career I’ve had, to be in a fight such as that – the highlight of the career."

Brook explained he thinks there is still clamour for the fight to happen despite the length of time it has been in the offing and that he is confident he will KO Khan.

He added: “I believe they [the fans] still want it.

“If we can get it across the line and it can happen, I think it’ll definitely catch fire again once we start promoting the fight.

“And what a fight it’ll be.

There’s only one winner and that’s me. I’m confident I’d knock him out, definitely yeah."

"There’s only one winner and that’s me.

“It’s always been me and, as soon as he’s signed that contract, he’ll know pretty quick as well. I’ll be taking that win.

“I’m just confident in that fight, I’ve seen his fights and I just believe that it’s a great fight us meshing together.

“I just believe that I’ve got the shot and I’ll find a way to catch his chin and end the night.

“I’m confident I’d knock him out, definitely yeah.”
