Kell Brook says that Amir Khan is 'delicate around the whiskers'

IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook insists he would wreck Amir Khan's career if they ever settle their rivalry in the ring.

The 28-year-old champion floored his mandatory challenger Jo Jo Dan on four occasions during his dominant stoppage win in Sheffield on Saturday night.

Brook, who is now unbeaten in 34 fights, called out British rival Khan after a first successful defence of his belt in front of his hometown fans at the Motorpoint Arena.

A fight with the Bolton man has eluded Brook, who cannot understand why Khan would not be interested in another big domestic clash, with Wembley being lined up as a possible venue in June.

"It doesn't make sense to me, because there's a belt on the line," Brook told Sky Sports News HQ.

"I'm giving him an opportunity because there's a world title belt on the line and there's going to be a lot of money there for him, probably the most he's earned in a fight.

"It's in Britain - War of the Roses - it's a very exciting fight, I don't know why he just doesn't take the fight - it baffles me.

"I think he knows that he's delicate around the whiskers. I keep saying that and after I've done with Khan, he's going to be a mere memory and he knows that.

"It's just a matter of time before he's forced into that fight because of the public demand and we see him on the canvas once again."
