KELL BROOK will have domestic rival Amir Khan on his mind when he returns to the ring for the first time since his Bramall Lane heartbreak at the Sheffield Arena in March.

Brook lost his IBF welterweight title to American Errol Spence last year and has now moved up in weight to face his former sparring partner Sergei Rabchenko.

A prospective big-money bout with Khan moved closer earlier this month when the former Olympic silver medallist – who has not fought since May 2016 – signed terms with Brook’s promoter Eddie Hearn.
