Khan not really interested in Brook
19 Dec 2014 10:10
Amir Khan has no interest in a domestic dust-up with Kell Brook as he looks to land a fight with pound-for-pound superstars Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao next year.
-
Brook, who earlier this year captured the IBF welterweight title before being forced to take time away from the ring when he was stabbed while in Tenerife, has long courted a showdown with the Bolton fighter.
-
But Khan believes he is a level above Brook and would prefer to be matched against the two biggest fighters in the sport.
-
"I'm not really interested in the Kell Brook fight," Khan said.
-
"I'm looking at the biggest names in boxing. Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao, I think that's where I belong.
-
"If the fight doesn't happen with Floyd then maybe Manny Pacquiao is another option. I'd like to fight in May to keep myself busy and sharp. I think that helps me."
-
Khan produced arguably the finest performance of his career on Saturday night in a lopsided points win over former two-weight world champion Devon Alexander.
-
It was just Khan's second fight in the 147lb division, although many believe his style would cause all sorts of problems for the unbeaten Mayweather.
-
However, the WBC and WBA champion is targeting a super fight with WBO titlist Manny Pacquiao and dismissed Khan earlier this week, saying of the 28-year-old: "No one knows who Amir Khan is."
