For us it's all eyes on Spence but of course that fight remains one of the biggest fights out there
Talks of a bout between Brook and Khan have persisted over the last three years with the latter suggesting a showdown between the pair would fill Wembley Stadium, with Sheffield United's ground expected to be a sell-out for Saturday's clash.
Hearn admits the 'Special One' can't look beyond Spence Jr, but is expecting more fireworks from the two British stars.
"Amir will be there tonight and I expect him to be vocal after the fight," Hearn told Sky Sports.
"For us it's all eyes on Spence but of course that fight [Brook vs Khan] remains one of the biggest fights out there.
"Victory for Kell makes him a big star and I know he also wants the [Keith] Thurman fight badly to unify the division.
"Let's see how it plays out, I can't guarantee the best reception from the fans tonight but he is of course welcome."
Khan has already suggested that he is happy to take on Brook, provided he comes through the toughest test of his welterweight career, against Spence Jr.
Both made this morning's check weight ahead of the fight, with Khan looking to get back into the ring later this year.
"Come back to Britain, put on a big show, and beat someone like Kell in a rivalry fight," Khan told Sky Sports earlier this week.
"Who is No 1 in the division in the UK? People don't know who to pick, so let's prove it."
