After being conclusively knocked out in his recent challenge for a version of the world middleweight title Saul ?Canelo? Alvarez, it had been suggested that Amir Khan might consider a huge domestic tear-up with the IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook.

After all it seemed the ideal way to remain in the spotlight whilst also having the opportunity to claim a world title.

Talk of it being held at Wembley Stadium in front of 80,000 inevitably followed, making it a hugely lucrative enterprise.

But it appears that Khan still has no interest in climbing into a ring with the Sheffield fighter with commenting about declining a clash with Brook,

?He?s not a big enough draw for me. Eddie can keep saying he?s massive, but he?s not.

?I don?t like him and I?m not giving him the fight.

?I want to maximise the last few years of my career by fighting the biggest names in boxing.?

Interestingly Khan, still ranked as the mandatory challenger to Danny Garcia for the WBC welterweight title, wants to pursue a fight with the man who beat him back in 2012.

Talking about another fight with Garcia, Khan has remarked,

?Garcia would be a great fight.?

It would but would Khan be able to reverse that previous verdict?
