The idea of a possible fight between Kell Brook and Amir Khan. Most boxing fans get excited from the possiblity of this bout but how true are the rumours and who would win?
Well to be honest they aren’t just rumours. The pair are said to be in talks about this fight happening. Eddie Hearn confirmed Brook and Khan are “in talk” over a possible fight in May 2017. This fight is definitely one that fans want to see and after both of their most recent bouts, I’m sure this is one the fighters want also. Brook’s most recent fight against Gennady Golovkin saw Brook defeated in round 5 after his coach threw he towel in as he was badly hurt. Khan’s most recent bout was against Saul Alvarez which saw Khan also lose but he lost by KO. Both fighters want to return and show how good they are. The fight will hopefully happen, it has been anticipated for a long time and it will be another huge fight for boxing in 2017.
If the fight happened who would win the fight? Both fighters are very solid and good fighters. Khan’s most recent fight saw an upset as he was expected to do better if not win against Alvarez. Brook faced Golovkin who is undefeated and one of the best pound for pound boxers in the world. I think that Khan would put up a good fight and this fight could go the distance but I think Brook will win this fight. Brook faced Golovkin and showed he is a real warrior, this is why I think he will beat Khan, whether by knockout or on points.
