Khan and Kell: Paths and destiny

Amir Khan, Kell Brook - Following a week of great significance in the UK welterweight ranks, there appears, as ever, more questions than answers	. After a tumultuous period since his high profile win over ‘future superstar’ Shawn Porter  last August, Kell Brook returned from his career threatening leg stabbing injury against IBF mandatory challenger Jo Jo Dan. Whilst the Canadian based Romanian brought heart and desire to the ring, it was evident early on there was an ocean of class between the pair. Eventually seeing off his challenger in the fourth round following an equal number of knockdowns, Brook didn’t even need to be at his best on this occasion, and seemed to show no signs of any lingering problems with the leg. The post-fight interviews included the inevitable calling out of Amir Khan, a natural fight in everybody’s eyes, unless your named Amir Khan or Al Haymon!
