Amir Khan and Kell Brook have rematch clause in contract with pair finally set to face off in British grudge match

AMIR KHAN has a rematch clause in his contract to fight Kell Brook should he lose their February 19 grudge match.

But Brook, 35, has sensationally claimed his rival wouldn’t dream of taking him up on the offer after he’s finished with him.

Brook has vowed to start with a bang and is expecting to see speed and power on display from both boxers.

The Sheffield fighter told Sky Sports: “I believe there is a rematch clause and I’m not sure that he’ll want to take that rematch clause or not with what I want to do to him in this fight.

“I think there’s going to be fireworks and as soon as that bell rings, I’m going to be marching out and I’m coming straight for him.

“He’s going to want to do the same and there’s going to be speed, there’s going to be power and there’s going to be everything you want to see in a boxing match in this fight.

“I do know that there’s going to be a rematch if Amir Khan wants that.

“If Khan wants another beatdown he can have one.”

Last week Khan claimed he would retire after his bout with Brook – regardless of the result.

But Khan, 35, quickly hinted at a U-turn following a successful week of sparring with boxers several years his junior.

He has even been training with ex-rival Terence Crawford – and the former world champion revealed he feels so good he might do another training camp for a future fight.

It is possible Floyd Mayweather could even be his next opponent.

According to Brook, the 50-0 fighter wants to fight the winner of their contest.
