Eddie Hearn has revealed that he is confident Khan vs Brook will take place in summer 2016.
Hearn, speaking to IFLTV, said that he had a conversation with Khan during the Smith vs Fielding card and is confident the fight will go ahead in 2016. “I had some interesting chats with Amir Khan [last] Saturday, and if he fights in January like I think he might, I think the Brook fight can happen in the Summer,” said Hearn.
Hearn also said he told Khan that Brook was looking to have a few more fights at 147lbs before moving up to 154lbs to challenge for a title there. Hearn quoted Khan as replying “Don’t move up, you got to fight me first!”
