Boxing Boxing: Khan Hoping to Seal Cotto Bout

Khan vs. Brook: Latest Details, Comments Surrounding Potential Fight

By Bleachers 28 March 2015



Eric Jamison/Associated Press


Amir Khan may have missed out on a potential bout with Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao, but he is avidly hunting his next opponent. Although it was initially thought an all-British fight against Kell Brook could go ahead, Khan is said to be lining up a glamour contest against Miguel Cotto.


Khan Expects Brook Clash 'in the Future'

Friday, Mar. 27

Khan has admitted he is looking to get a fight "sorted" against Cotto "within the next week," a clash which would likely take place "towards the end of May,"

However, he believes a future bout against Brook is a real possibility, per Sky:
That fight can happen in the future for sure. Maybe towards the end of the year or next yearómaybe a fight between myself and Kell Brook can happen. I am sure he is hopeful this weekend and then hopefully after that we can start talking to him. Itís a fight that boxing fans want to see and itís a fight Iíd like as well. So why not?
Hopefully he gets past his fight, I get past my fight in May and we can get something on.

Brook: No Khan Fight in 2015

Wednesday, Mar. 25

Brook recently admitted it is unlikely he will face Khan before the calender ticks over:

"I think the Amir Khan fight is gone for this year. I'm the world champion and I will fight some other massive name. I'm not interested in what he (Khan) does next now."
Special K will instead look to face the winner of Mayweather-Pacquiao, plans which may step on Khan's toes somewhere along the line, per BBC:

"It makes sense to do a unification fight. No contact has been made yet with either of them (Mayweather or Pacquiao) and I'm just focusing on my mandatory challenge (against Jo Jo Dan) at the moment. But I want to be involved in the big fights."


Khan Snubs Brook, Eyes Cotto

Wednesday, Mar. 4

As reported by ESPN, "Khan is unlikely to face Kell Brook this summer as he looks to negotiate a fight with Miguel Cotto in America."
Parkinson suggests dates of May 30 or June 6 are being touted, with Juan Manuel Marquez, Timothy Bradley or Chris Algieri being lined up if Cotto cannot be arranged.


Hearn: 'Initial Talks' for Khan vs. Brook Held

Friday, Feb. 27

Promoter Eddie Hearn previously suggested Khan had opened talks regarding a possible IBF welterweight title fight with compatriot Brook.P As reported by ESPN, Hearn was confident the fight will happen:

"Just some friendly, initial talks (have gone ahead). They are confident the fight will happen this year. I am pushing for it early June."

Brook first faces a mandatory title defence against Jo Jo Dan on March 28 in Sheffield, England, but the 28-year-old is widely expected to cruise to a win, opening the door for a battle with Khan. It seems Khan is the biggest obstacle to this happening, however.

Hearn previously touched on a potential fight between the pair, a bout British fans have been clamoring for, looking at the example set by Mayweather and Pacquiao as a reason he thought it could happen. Writing for the Daily Mail, he sounded very hopeful:

Khan was widely expected to be the next opponent of either Mayweather or Pacquiao should the duo have been unsuccessful in making their long-awaited superfight happen, and while he will no doubt be left disappointed missing out on one of the two legends, a fight against Brook makes for a great consolation prize, per Rafael:
That fight can definitely happen. He has a fight coming up (March 28) with his mandatory. Iím fighting in May, so Kell probably wouldnít be ready in May but I would love to fight him at the end of the year. Itís a big fight even if it isnít as big as me against Manny or Floyd.
Kell Brook is very powerful, very strong. Heís kind of slick the way he fights. He puts his punches together quite well. Plus, it would be a massive U.K. fight. I think we could sell out Wembley. A fight between us has been talked about for a long time. He it would bring a lot of money for him to fight me.
Khan vs. Brook would certainly have the potential to sell out Wembley Stadium, and with the IBF world title on the line, the winner of that bout would be in line for a unification bout against the winner of Mayweather vs. Pacquiao, who hold the WBA Super and WBO belts, respectively.
Should Khan succeed in luring Cotto into the ring, however, it seems British fans won't get to witness two of their best going toe-to-toe just yet.
