Kell Brook (Ezekiel Brinsly Reid "Kell" Brook) has an ego the size of Sheffield. Not only does he feel Amir Khan should be fighting him, but according to his logic, he and not Khan deserves a fight vs. the likes of Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. (I know, I know... sounds like a bad joke.)
"Amir has beaten Devon Alexander, but that doesn't give him the right to jump the queue and go ahead of me," was quoted as saying in The Express UK (media publication).
Brook feels Khan has to go through him first, adding to the publication:
"He has to go through me first. Amir Khan has lost three times in his career, yet I've not been beaten."
Regarding Khan trying to land lucrative bouts with either Pacman or Money, Brooks stated:
"If anyone deserves the right to face Mayweather or Pacquiao it has to be me."
It has to be him?! For me, that has to be the joke of the day! Today's humour was brought to you by the letter SPECIAL K.
