Brook not on ‘elite level’.
Brook not on “elite level”.
Amir Khan last night poured cold water on IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook?s hopes for an imminent encounter.
Speaking to BoxingScene.com in Las Vegas Khan said,
?That won’t happen. I?m fighting at the end of May?I mean, I think they are trying to make the public think I?m scared. I?m not scared. I?m the only fighter who?s fought anyone and never refused a fight? I?m focusing on the likes (of) Pacquiao, Mayweather? that level. I want to fight the elite guys in this sport.?
Returning to the ring last night only six months after a machete attack in Tenerife left him with a life-threatening leg wound, Brook made short work of challenger Jo Jo Dan.
While the four round stoppage in Sheffield?s Motorpoint Arena may have delighted his adoring hometown fans, wiser heads should perhaps have urged Brook to keep his powder a little drier.
Demolition jobs make poor incentives for future opponents.
