Khan last fought in 2019, wherein he attained a win over Billy Dib. In this bout, he battled Dib for the vacant WBC international welterweight title. Putting on a fine performance, Khan T/KOed Dib in round 4 of the fight. Post that, boxing pundits expected ‘King Khan’ to remain active.

But it’s been nearly two years, and he hasn’t stepped inside the boxing ring.

On the other hand, Brook remained substantially active with his boxing stint. He didn’t take any fight in 2021, but, last year, the Brit got a chance to square off with the WBO welterweight champ, Terence Crawford. He ended up losing this fight against ‘Bud’ and is now eager to get back his stint on track.

Moving on, with the position both Khan and Brook are in, this just seems the ideal time for the pair to collide.
