Kell Brook has confirmed that there is a ‘rematch clause’ in the deal for the upcoming domestic feud against Amir Khan.
Brook and Khan will collide in the former world champions’ battle on February 19 in Manchester.
The rematch clause seems to favor Khan, who will have the option to exercise that option in the event of defeat.
“I believe there’s a rematch clause and I’m not sure if he wants to carry that rematch clause or not given what I want to do with him in this one,” Brook told Sky Sports News.
“I think there’s going to be fireworks and as soon as that bell rings I’ll march out and I’ll go straight to him. He wants to do the same and there’s going to be speed, there’s going to be strength. and will have everything you want to see in a boxing match in this fight.”
According to Brook, the rematch clause was one of the requests on behalf of Khan – but the Sheffield boxer seriously doubts that scenario will ever happen.
He believes Khan will retire from this sports career.
“I gave it to my manager, my father, and to my team,” says Brook. “All I care about is this fight. I know there will be a rematch if Amir Khan wants it. If Amir Khan wants another beat, he can have one.”
Brook is aiming for a comeback from a make-up loss in 2020 to WBO weight champion Terence Crawford, while Khan has been inactive since his TKO win over Billy Dib in July 2019.
