Amir Khan is fighting Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez and not Kell Brook because, the IBF king tells Danny Flexen, Khan wanted too much of the purse

IBF welterweight king Kell Brook talks the Amir Khan fight and more, to Danny Flexen in this week’s issue of Boxing News magazine. This is out now on our app and the print version is in stores on Thursday (February 4). Here is an excerpt in Brook’s own words.

It seemed closer than ever. The lawyers were involved this time and it’s the most communication we’ve had. But I don’t know what he was playing at, they are forgetting that I’m the champion and he’d be a voluntary challenger. Don’t try to price yourself out of the fight by demanding an 80-20 split because that’s not going to happen.
