Brook hits back at Khan

Kell Brook

IBF welterweight champion, Kell Brook, this week used Twitter to launch an attack on his bitter rival, Amir Khan.

Brook’s tweet is a response to comments Khan made during an interview about the upcoming bout between Kell Brook and Argentinian Welterweight Diego Chaves.

“I don’t know much about Diego Chaves, but I know that he’s lost three of his last five fights,” said, Khan. “He’s [Brook] really got to up his game and fight the top guys like I do. I wish him all the best and hope he keeps winning. I want to fight these top guys like Timothy Bradley and Marcos Maidana. That makes our fight bigger.”

Brook is set to fight Diego Chaves, as a voluntary defence of his IBF title on October 24th.

Chaves had been due to take part in a final eliminator for the IBF title shot, which was a mere formality, however, Brook opted to offer Chaves the title shot to avoid waiting for the eliminator.
