Kell Brook has called Amir Khan’s bluff regarding a potential grudge fight between the pair - telling his British rival: “It’s not about money for me.”

 

The calls for Khan to finally settle his long-running feud with Brook have grown stronger in the last few days, but the Bolton fighter insists he has more pressing issues.

While Khan is keen to meet the IBF welterweight champion “one day”, he added he would be keen on a winner-takes-all fight.

Brook, though, is unfazed.

“It’s not about money for me. It’s about everywhere I go, (people asking) ‘when are you going to fight him?” he said.

“It’s public demand now. I think that he’s getting forced in to this fight if he gets in.”
