It’s been a very long time because Amir Khan has actually been seen inside a boxing ring, 2 years come July to be specific. Although his newest look was available in a winning initiative versus Billy Dib, the ruthless sixth-round standstill loss through Terence Crawford 3 months prior still resounds psychological of a lot of boxing followers.
Khan, 34, was gone down as well as controlled before an obvious reduced strike brought an end to their face-off too soon. Adhering to the loss, Khan contemplated retired life. Yet, after having a lot of time to assume, the previous 140-pound champ does not think he prepares to hang up his handwear covers right now. In truth, if the British citizen has it his means, he’ll be taking on with the one name a lot of the boxing globe has actually wished to defend years currently.
“I want one more dance,” stated Khan throughout a meeting with IFL TELEVISION. “Kell Brook is the one that was calling me out all this time and now, we’re coming to a stage where I’ve said, let’s make it happen. It’s funny because Kell Brook isn’t really responding.”
At one moment, a Kell Brook vs Amir Khan face-off was thought about among the leading spells that can be made. With Brook (39-3, 27 KOs) holding the IBF title from 2014-2017 as well as Khan (34-5, 21 KOs) among the departments best throughout that time period, neither side showed up in a thrill to make their face-off a truth.
Nonetheless, with Khan gazing his boxing death straight in the face as well as with Brook coming off a fourth-round standstill loss through Terence Crawford, Khan thinks the moment is lastly best. The previous Olympic Silver champion does confess that their ideal days are long behind them, however still, he securely thinks that it’s a blockbuster-level battle.
“It’s still a big British fight. People will still want to tune in. I know we’re past the prime of our careers but it’s still a fight people would like to see.”
In the mind of Khan, it does not matter if both battled in their keys, at the backend of their professions, or at the elderly facility, the outcome was constantly mosting likely to coincide.
“He’s very confident and I’m very confident but I don’t see it going past six rounds. I think under six rounds I’ll get a stoppage.”
