Las Vegas - Arab Today

Amir Khan has dismissed the possibility of fighting domestic rival Kell Brook, despite his plans to return to the welterweight division.

The 29-year-old impressed against WBC middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in Las Vegas on Saturday night until the heavy sixth-round knockout that ended his challenge.

He has already spoken of his desire to pursue his status as mandatory challenger to WBC welterweight champion Danny Garcia, to whom he lost in 2012, but there remains a strong chance Garcia will be Floyd Mayweather's next opponent if the undefeated American makes his expected return from retirement.

IBF welterweight champion Brook has long sought a fight with the Olympic silver medallist, although he stated on Monday that he did not feel it would be "safe" to fight Khan because of the nature of his defeat to Alvarez.

But even if Garcia remains out of Khan's reach he is adamant he will not consider Brook an option because of the extent to which he dislikes him.
"I don't think that fight will happen, I'll give that a miss," said Khan, speaking before Brook's "unsafe" claim. "He's on his route, I'm on my route, and we just don't agree with each other. Basically, I don't like him and I'm not going to give him the fight.

"[Brook's promoter] Eddie Hearn can keep saying that he's massive, he's this, he's that, he's a big name. He's not.

"I respect him, he's got a world title, but I want to fight the biggest names. These are the last few years of my career, I want to maximise it and leave a great legacy behind.

"I'd like to fight in England, but I'm thinking of bringing big names [like Miguel Cotto] here. That'd be amazing, wouldn't it?

"Garcia definitely is top of the list, it's the easiest one to make, and it'd be a great fight for me, someone my own weight.

"[Timothy Bradley] would be an amazing fight, [Manny] Pacquiao would be an amazing fight. For sure [Pacquiao will fight again]."

Following his defeat to Alvarez, Khan ruled out the possibility of retiring from the sport.
