Brook v Khan: on next year?

Have your say

PROMOTER Eddie Hearn may be dropping hints that progress is being made in matching Sheffield’s Kell Brook and Amir Khan.

On Saturday, after Brook demolished Rafal Jackiewicz at Ponds Forge, Hearn said “People talk about Amir Khan - that is a natural fight in 2012. That is a fight this country has to see.

“We will push to make it happen. He (Khan) can keep making excuses, but it doesn’t matter. We will get him.”

But yesterday Hearn tweeted: “Ok..we are ready..big @SpecialKBrook announcements soon.. We have something very special here Britain!”

Brook stopped Jackiewicz in the sixth round - although the Polish fighter, who had never previously been halted, was fuming with Doncaster referee Howard Foster for stepping in during the bombardment. n Report: p27
