Boxing Fans Slam Kell Brook vs Michael Zerafa Fight

Khan and Brook have both held world titles in the past

Khan and Brook have both held world titles in the past

Brook labelled Khan a "con" on Thursday after learning the Bolton man is more likely to pursue a fight against American welterweight Terence Crawford than focus on an all-British super-fight. "Next year, 2019, I'm coming for them big boys".

Brook, who had new trainer John Fewkes in his corner instead of his long-term mentor Dominic Ingle, began full of intent as he buried hurtful body shots into Zerafa.

After weighing in at 10st 10lbs and 2oz on Friday, Brook shrugged off suggestions that weight issues had scuppered the Khan bout, insisting to Sky Sports: 'I can make welterweight.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has warned Khan, who has one fight left on his contract with Matchroom, that the domestic fight has to happen now.

Promoter Eddie Hearn hoped for a deal to be set in place prior to Brook's December 8 fight, but Khan is now floating the idea of taking at least $5 million guaranteed to challenge WBO Welterweight Champion Terence Crawford on March 23 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. I want to become world champion again. I've agreed to all his demands, I'm not holding this fight up. "I'm on a mission in 2019".

The Maryland-born fighter, nicknamed "Swift", has been heavily linked with a unification bout with WBC champion Jermell Charlo, which would take priority over a mandatory defense, so Brook may be waiting longer than expected for a title shot if he opted to go down this route.

Warriors sharpshooter Steph Curry claims man never set foot on the moon
Curry initially asked the rest of the podcast: "We ever been to the moon?" Or he could stick with his conspiracy theory. So many people would have to know if the moon landing were faked, and there's no way they'd all keep it secret.

Zerafa will cause problems tonight.

"I just think he's fighting a nobody, really".

And hearts were in mouths in the eight when a huge right hand rocked Brook and sent him back into the ropes but it was only a scare. Skill wise, I can out-box him anyway, and out-beat him.

"I've been there before against Shawn Porter, I know the feeling when that fire burns inside". "I'm starting to find my feet now in the pro game", said Ashfaq.

Galahad will now be an interested spectator for the Battle of Britain clash in two weeks' time when Josh Warrington defends his world title against Carl Frampton. In his two stoppage-loss to Spence and Golovkin, Brook suffered broken eye sockets in both fights and only returned with an easy two-round win over Sergey Rabchenko in March.

"It could be an emotional one, you might see a few tears", admitted Brook.
