According to The National.ae Amir Khan is in negotiations to face IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook at Wembley Stadium in London in 2016. Rumours circulating the internet suggest Khan is set to fight friend and former stablemate Manny Pacquiao in Dubai but Khan says that Brook’s promoter has travelled to Bolton in the north of England to open negotiations for a showdown with Brook.
“Eddie sent me a text and I invited him to Bolton,” Khan told The National. “We had a meeting at my office and we discussed everything for a potential fight against Kell Brook in 2016.
“I have made it clear to Eddie that I want this fight to be a big fight worldwide, not just in the UK. I told him Kell needs to fight a couple of big names and beat them, obviously. That will make our fight even bigger.
“The fight will be a Khan Promotions and Matchroom Promotions event in the UK, at Wembley Stadium.”
