Kell Brook has insisted that Amir Khan will become a “mere memory” if they eventually meet in the ring as he calls out his rival for a domestic showdown.

Brook calls out Khan: (Video) IBF champion and Eddie Hearn want the fight.
Brook defended his IBF welterweight world title with a convincing win over mandatory challenger Jo Jo Dan on Saturday night, and attention quickly turned to a bout with Khan.
While the 28-year-old has insisted that he wants that fight next, his Bolton-born rival hasn’t been particularly keen on the idea as he continues to look elsewhere in the division.
Brook is unbeaten in 34 fights and has insisted that he will move on and look for big names in the USA if Khan doesn’t accept his challenge, but he doesn’t understand why he doesn’t want to take the fight.
“It doesn’t make sense to me, because there’s a belt on the line,” Brook told Sky Sports.
“I’m giving him an opportunity because there’s a world title belt on the line and there’s going to be a lot of money there for him, probably the most he’s earned in a fight.
“It’s in Britain – War of the Roses – it’s a very exciting fight, I don’t know why he just doesn’t take the fight – it baffles me.
“It’s just a matter of time before he’s forced into that fight because of the public demand and we see him on the canvas once again.”
It remains to be seen what Khan decides to do next as he is expected to return to the ring at the end of May or early June, and promoter Eddie Hearn has already revealed that June 13 is pencilled in for Wembley if Khan wants the Brook fight.
The showdown would certainly be a huge hit with British boxing fans, and it would seemingly give the winner the best possible chance of landing a fight with either Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao later in the year.
