Khan defeated Chris Algieri at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Friday night, while Brook successfully defended his IBF welterweight belt against Frankie Gavin on Saturday.
Brook has seemingly grown tired of being asked about Khan, with promoter Eddie Hearn insisting that it is the Bolton-born fighter and his team who are holding the fight back from happening.
Given these latest comments, it appears as though it is highly unlikely that British fight fans will get their domestic scrap later this year and so both men will move in their own direction.
While Brook has suggested that Brandon Rios could be his next opponent later this summer, it remains to be seen whether or not Khan gets his wish and faces Floyd Mayweather.
The 28-year-old again suggested that talks were on-going with advisor Al Haymon about securing the bout, with ‘Money’ expected to return to the ring for a final time on September 12 before retiring.
However, Khan made it clear that he wasn’t scared of Brook and that he merely isn’t interested in the fight as his team will now pick his next opponent.
