KELL BROOK has told Conor Benn and Chris Eubank Jr to fall in and fight each other if they want to follow in Amir Khan’s bloody footsteps.
Rising welterweight prospect Benn, 25, was ringside in Manchester to watch the Sheffield ace take apart his fellow 35-year-old on Saturday but was refused access to the ring post-fight to challenge the winner.

And Middleweight 32-year-old Chris Eubank Jr was also in town to watch the 20-year feud get settled, before offering his victorious Sky Sports stablemate a summer showdown.
Eubank Jr appears the front runner as it would offer Brook a move up to the 160lbs (11st 7lbs) limit, on their shared TV channel, after Khan‘s strict catchweight demands just saw him drain down to 149lbs.
“Me and Kell Brook need to get it on in the summer,” the son of British ring legend Chris Sr roared. “It’s a massive fight for British boxing.
“Me and Kell don’t get on, we have beef and history, he has said before that he wants to ‘kick my head in’.
“He wants it and he proved on Saturday that he could do it. I was not expecting Kell to be as dominant, the man has still got some spice. But let’s see how spicy he can get with me.
“His performance against Khan makes our fight incredible. I am coming off of a big win, I am letting my hand heal and then we can go in the summer.”
Eubank Jr and Brook fell out around 2016 when Brook leapfrogged him in negotiations for his dream mega-money fight with Gennady Golovkin.
And Brook was happy to confirm the bad blood still simmers, saying: “I don’t like him and that fight can happen.
“I am going to sit down with my family and see what they want me to do because I think I still have plenty left.
“I will have talks with Eubank and see what happens.
“I know I am at the backend of my career but I know I can fight again once I finish enjoying this win.”
Benn was blocked from gatecrashing the post-fight truce that broke out between the two proud Northerners.
But the Essex hardman is eager to lure either man back down south to his weight class but his exclusive broadcasting deal with DAZN makes him the outside bet to be Brook’s next opponent.
He growled: “The chances of me and Kell happening are quite high.

“It would be a massive domestic fight, I want to challenge myself against those who say they are the best in Britain and he’s that guy.
“I want that fight. I’ll be talking to the team.”
Mischievous Brook though – a bonafide former IBF world champion – suggested the two famous fighting offspring, who are yet to win major honours of their own, fight each other to earn the crack at him.
He grinned: “I think maybe they should fight each other first.
“I’ve just beaten Amir Khan, I am flavour of the month again, so I’m the man. They have to get in line.
“I am just going to enjoy this win, I want to spend some time with my beautiful kids, because I have been away so long.”
