After years of taunting and failed negotiations, it looks as if Kell Brook and Amir Khan are finally set to face each other next year.
With the curtain slowly coming down on the careers of both fighters, they recognize this might be the final chance for them to face off.
Brook (39-3, 27 KOs) revealed during an interview with IFL TV that he has signed his side of the contract and is waiting for Khan (34-5, 21 KOs) to seal the deal.
“I’ve signed my part of the fight,” Brook said. “He just needs to come forward and sign his part, and we’ve got the biggest fight in British boxing. We’ve signed our bit. But listen, we don’t need to hide about it. Everyone knows that this fight needs to happen.
“He’s been shouting my name, I haven’t really been coming in front of the cameras, it’s him shouting my name saying he wants it. I’ve done my thing. Let’s see if he does his thing, and we’ve got the biggest fight in British boxing.”
Brook didn’t mention a specific date or site for the proposed bout.
