AMIR KHAN has spoken to Kell Brook’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, about a possible fight with the unbeaten IBF welterweight champion at Wembley Stadium next year.

Clamour for a fight between the two has built over the last few years but Khan has ruled out facing Brook this year.

However, Khan revealed to The National that he has met with Hearn and they discussed, at length, organising the fight for 2016.

“I have made it clear to Eddie that I want this fight to be a big fight worldwide, not just in the UK,” he said.

“I told him Kell needs to fight a couple of big names and beat them, obviously. That will make our fight even bigger.

“The fight will be a Khan Promotions and Matchroom Promotions event in the UK, at Wembley Stadium.”

He also claimed Bob Arum, Manny Pacquiao’s promoter, had approached him about setting up a fight with the Flilipino icon next year in Dubai.

“Bob Arum has contacted my team to fight Manny Pacquiao around March or April in Dubai. Let’s see how that develops,” he said.

“Since Floyd [Mayweather] is running scared, I want Pacquiao in 2016 when he is back from his injury; 2016 will be Amir Khan’s year, you will see me in two of the biggest fights in that year.”
