Amir Khan dreaming of fighting Kell Brook at Man Utd’s Old Trafford in long-awaited Battle of Britain

AMIR KHAN has set his sights on an Old Trafford showdown with Kell Brook.

Bolton bruiser Khan has been chasing a bout with the former IBF welterweight champion for the best part of five years.

And he reckons the domestic dust-up could fill the Theatre of Dreams – despite both men being in the latter stages of their careers.

The 34-year-old told Sky Sports: “I think now is the right time to make that fight happen with Kell.

“We both have been world champions. We’re both British and in the north as well.

“Imagine making a huge fight like that happen at the Old Trafford football stadium. It would be a massive fight.

“Look, we’re ready to take it, and I think it will be good for boxing, especially to settle the score and put him in his place.”

Khan recently called for Matchroom Boxing chief Eddie Hearn to make the long-awaited Battle of Britain, which he wants to be his swansong.

The Olympic silver medallist told talkSPORT: “What’s the fight that everyone wants to see?

“Everyone wants to see the Kell Brook fight. We’ve been talking about it for years and years.

“Look, me and Kell are probably past our best, I’ll be honest. But at the same time, we’re both around the same age.

“I think it’d be a good fight between us to see still who the number one is in Britain.”

He added: “So I called Eddie Hearn and I said ‘let’s make it happen’.

“Eddie said ‘no worries’, spoke to Kell’s family and Kell’s father wasn’t interested in it. He said ‘no, we’re gonna look at other options’.

“What other option is there for Kell Brook to make a good payday and fight someone with a big name like myself? Unless he fights someone with a world title or in America.

“So I’m scratching my head man, I’m thinking like, ‘What’s he going through?’

“What’s going on with Kell Brook? How come he doesn’t want the fight? Let’s make it happen.”

Former two-division champion Khan hasn’t fought since his fourth-round TKO victory over Billy Dib last July.

Brook, meanwhile, hasn’t competed since his ill-fated bid to dethrone undefeated WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford last November.
