AMIR KHAN’S all-British dust-up against Kell Brook looks to be in doubt once more as the pair cannot agree on the weight they would fight at.
The two former world champions have been skirting around one another for the best part of a decade.

Brook has wanted to fight Khan for several years[/caption]
But they have failed to ever agree terms as egos have got in the way of a British super-fight.
Now Khan-Brook is not as big as it once would have been, but the British duo are still in talks to make it happen.
However, Khan has now revealed the latest stumbling block in the negotiations as they bicker over weight limits.
Khan said: “Kell said he would fight at 147lbs. I agreed. Now Kell wants 149lbs. Then he wants 149.5lbs. Is he even serious about wanting the fight?”
Khan, an Olympic silver medallist at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, holds a professional record of 34 wins and five defeats.
The 34-year-old has not fought since July 2019 and not held a world title since he lost his super-lightweight unification to Danny Garcia in 2012.
