Amir Khan/Kell Brook Engage In War Of Words Via Twitter; Khan Says “I’ll Never, Ever Fight Him Now”
By James Slater: In yet more Twitter feuding between two top name boxers, Amir Khan and the unbeaten Kell Brook have been exchanging insults on the platform. Khan has been so angered by the comments of Brook and his promoter Eddie Hearn (Brook saying he will KO Khan and “make him do that silly dance again”) that he has vowed to “never box him now.”

For a while now, Team-Brook have been calling out Khan, the former WBA/IBF 140-pound champ - with Hearn and “The Special One” both declaring a destruction of Khan if the fight ever happens. The British public would like to see the fight, but Khan has unfinished business against Lamont Peterson to attend to. Khan has basically told Brook he is not in any way on his radar.
Khan, who started off by reminding everyone that, A: he and Brook fight in different weight classes, and, B: Brook has not fought anyone in his class yet, went on to say:
“Kell Brook calling me a queen then begs me to give him a payday. For that quote, talk like a man instead of talking like a queer. I promise because of all his and Hearns bullshit - I will never give him a shot. Kell Brook doesn’t deserve to the fight the king, ever. I’ll never box him now. Please Kell Brook grow a dick. Eddie Hearn n Sky promising you Khan fight. I’m promising u now it ain’t gonna happen ever.
“I’m after the big boys ….. Peterson, Marquez, Ortiz, Alexander, Mayweather all great fighters, Brook got along way to go, ain’t fought nobody.”
Khan sure sounds steamed! Of course, it’s common practice for an up-and-coming, emerging star of a talent to call out a bigger, more proven name. Brook is simply playing the game. Khan, though, does have bigger fish to fry; at least for now (things could change if Khan loses to Peterson for a second time). The word from Richard Schaefer is that if Khan can get revenge over Lamont Peterson on May 19th, he could bag that mega-fight with “Money” Mayweather next summer. With that kind of big deal on his mind, it’s little wonder Khan is not even thinking about Brook.
At least he wasn’t until earlier today, when he let loose with a tirade of insults, promises and vows. You can write it down: Amir Khan Vs. Kell Brook will never happen!
