IT’S Kell Brook fight week and that means one thing: plenty of questions regarding Amir Khan will be asked in favour of questions regarding his next opponent.

Brook fights the unheralded Michael Zerafa on Saturday (December 8) in Sheffield and is expected to win handily and then call out Amir Khan, or at least mention his name, in the post-fight interview. In a mark of the routine nature of Saturday’s fight, however, Brook feels no way about mentioning Khan – and the fight that seems destined to never happen – before he has even got Zerafa, his Australian fall guy, out of the way.

“What can I say? I think he’s turned his back completely on the British public, because I’ve bent over backwards just to make it happen,” the former IBF world welterweight champion told Sky Sports News.
