Brilliant Brook eyes Eubank after stopping Khan

Kell Brook is targetting a possible bout with Chris Eubank Jr following his devastating display against Amir Khan on Saturday night.

In a fight fans had been hoping to see for a decade, Brook simply proved too strong with the referee stopping proceedings in round six.

The build-up was dominated by the bad blood between the two welterweights, with their rivalry going back to their junior days.

There was even drama during the ring walk as Brook had to change gloves due to the Khan camp complaining they were different to the ones he had agreed to fight with.

However, Brook did all his talking in the ring and came out fast with Khan’s legs wobbling in round one.

The Bolton fighter put up a good response by edging the second but from there on in, the bout always looked like it was going to belong to ‘The Special One’.

Khan took some heavy punishment in the next three rounds and the fight was ended in the sixth just before his corner could throw in the towel.

It was a huge win for 35-year-old Brook who, like Khan, also 35, is in the closing stages of his career.

However, there are potential bouts on the cards with both Conor Benn and Chris Eubank Jr sounding out the Sheffield fighter.

Afterwards, he refused to rule out the prospect of fighting on, with the latter of those two seemingly his next target.

“I can live at peace with Amir Khan on my record,” Brook said. “My mojo is back and I love this game. We will listen to loved ones and see, but I’m back, baby.

“I can walk away but I could fight [Chris] Eubank [Jr]. I don’t like Eubank. If the fight is right I will fight – I’m a prizefighter.”

As for Khan, the 35-year-old admitted that could be his last fight and says he couldn’t get focused enough in the ring.

He said: “Forty fights is a lot of fights. Winning two world titles, going to America… I need to sit down with my family, but it’s more towards the end of my career.”
