Amir Khan has reaffirmed to talkSPORT that he does intend to face Kell Brook in a dream stadium fight, but not until next year.

The Bolton man has been linked to his Sheffield rival for several years now, with a bout still yet to happen between the pair.

Khan believes that the all-British showdown is now close to becoming a reality, although it is not in his immediate plans.

“A fight between us two, I really believe it would be a football stadium fight,” Khan told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, “Wembley Stadium for sure.

“It’s a fight that’s been talked about for a long, long time and it’s a massive British rival fight as well.

“I’ve always dreamt of fighting in a stadium – to sell a stadium out would be one of my dreams.”

Despite suggestion of a potential winter bout under the roof at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, Amir Khan has picked Manny Pacquiao as his priority for the remainder of 2018.

“It makes more sense if the Pacquiao fight happens first,” he continued, “With the weather in the UK, if you’re going to do a stadium fight in Wembley, it has to be in the summer.

“It’s not long, in a couple of months it’ll be summer and the Brook fight can happen.

“I would love that fight, but like I said, it’s just not gonna happen just yet.”
