Kell Brook has restated his desire to fight Amir Khan, revealing he would eat kangaroo testicles just to schedule a fight against the former world champion.
Khan has not been in the ring since his May 2016 defeat to Canelo Alvarez in Las Vegas, while Brook has not fought since May of this year, having been recovering from an operation on his eye socket required in the wake of his loss to Errol Spence Jr.
A grudge fight between the pair has been long suggested, and when Khan revealed he intends to end his lengthy absence from the ring in the coming months, Brook was touted as a potential opponent.
Khan is currently starring in reality television series I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here, but Brook joined talkSPORT on Wednesday evening to discuss rumours of a future fight.
The Sheffield-born orthodox told the Sports Bar: “He’s had to go to the other end of the world to avoid me. He knows where I am; I’m right here in England – ready.
“It’s that big of a fight I hope that it can happen.”
Asked if he would eat a kangaroo testicle – a common task on I’m a Celeb – to ensure the fight could happen, Brook replied: “I’d have to, wouldn’t I? I think the fans would chuck me off a bridge if I didn’t.
“All I can say is I really want the fight, and all in the boxing world know I really want the fight.”
Brook also revealed preparations for a comeback fight in the early months of 2018 are on schedule.
Though still in the early stages of organisation, the 31-year-old did admit he is likely to move to light-middleweight for the upcoming bout.
He added: “I’m going to be fighting again, early next year, in a comeback fight. 2018 is going to be a huge year, a huge chapter in my career, where I’ve got much more to give to this sport.
“It [the fight] has not been set up, but we’re just looking at venues, looking at dates, looking at what weight I’m going to come back to the ring at.
“I think it’s healthy for me to come back at light-middleweight in my comeback fight, but you never know. I could come back down to welterweight for the right fighter.”
