Amir Khan hits back at Kell Brook and blames rival for failing to seal fight

AMIR KHAN claims a fight with Kell Brook may not happen due to a disagreement in terms, as the Bolton man now sets his sights on Terence Crawford.

Khan, 32, looked set to finally agree a bout with long time rival Kell Brook, 32, with the chances of the fight increasing after promoter Eddie Hearn signed the former light-welterweight champion.

The pair came together at the Oleksandr Usyk vs Tony Bellew fight, and looked to have been discussing the potential fight.

However, Khan revealed to Mirror Sport that Brook has not responded to his condition of a 10lbs rehydration limit, with former undisputed light-welterweight king Crawford the new target.

Khan said: I went over to him to show respect and say there were no problems between us.

"I said, 'let's make this fight happen,' and he said he was struggling to make 147lb but we kind of agreed to that limit.
