Kell Brook claims he will “smash” Amir Khan on Saturday when they finally end their long-running feud at the Manchester Arena in a catchweight bout (Khan 6/4, Draw 16/1, Brook 4/6 – Bout Winner).
Fight fans will get to see the British pair throw down this weekend after years of jibes and taunts from both directions.
The former world champions met face-to-face at a press conference on Thursday and tensions were understandably high as fight night approaches.
Khan claimed the Sheffield fighter had always been “jealous” of his achievements and labelled Brook a “fanboy”.

“I think Kell’s always been very obsessed with my career. He’s been a fanboy,” Khan said.
“I think there comes a stage where I’ve been living in his head for such a long time that he needs to start paying me some rent.
“I’m going to go for the kill, but I’m experienced enough at this age to not make mistakes and go off the gameplan.”
Interest in the contest has been high from the outset with tickets selling out in just a matter of minutes, despite the pair, who are both 35, being well beyond their best years.
Brook (5/4 to win by KO/TKO/DQ/Technical Decision), however, feels he still has tools to stop the Bolton-born boxer and has vowed to earn a knockout victory.
“He’s definitely going to sleep Saturday night when I smash him in. He’s took this fight because he thinks I’m half broken. He’s made a massive mistake,” Brook said.
