Khan vs Brook main event preview
Even though this Khan vs Brook fight isn't for a title, there's plenty on the line for these two rivals.
Amir “King” Khan (34-5) is the former unified light-welterweight world champ. With this fight he’s now ready to pay off a rivalry that has built over years and years. It was back in 2018 when Brook jumped into the ring after Khan’s win over Phil Lo Greco and took their rivalry to the next level. But even though there was enough bad blood to make a great fight, Khan had other business in the ring. After having been a unified champ years earlier, he was preparing for another shot at a title from a big name fighter.
In spring of 2019, Khan faced Terence “Bud” Crawford for the WBO welterweight title. He earned one of the biggest paydays of his career, but Crawford outclassed him in almost every round before knocking him out in the sixth. Now finally after a bounce back fight, Amir Khan is game to finally face Brook, but how will he look after a two and a half year layoff? If there is any rust on the King, we could be in for a tight fight.
Kell “Special K” Brook (39-3) is a former IBF welterweight world champion, and he isn’t about to let a difference in weight class keep him from beating down his rival Amir Khan. Brook and Khan have agreed on a catchweight for this fight of 149 pounds, but he’s recently been walking around at a higher weight. Still 149 pound is a much higher weight than Khan’s typical 140 pound limit, and Brook believes he can take advantage of the smaller man.
Brook has several bigger names on his resume than Khan, but almost all of them were losses. He was knocked out by Trence Crawford, Errol Spence Jr. and Gennady Golovkin, but his signature win was a title fight victory over Shawn Porter in 2014. It might be too late for another title fight for Brook, but he can still gain glory and bragging rights by winning this epic grudge match.
Khan is a slight favorite to win this fight at -150 odds.
