In what seems to be incredibly quick negotiations for a fight of this magnitude, the two superstars have agreed terms and the fight will go ahead on April 23rd, location to be confirmed.
Pacman’s trainer Freddie Roach is also the former trainer of Amir Khan and the pair used to be sparring partners before they parted ways. Khan now spends his time training with Virgil Hunter, the mastermind behind Andre Ward’s legendary career.
The fight has been signed and the deal is done for the 23rd April. Both Abu Dhabi and Dubai have been the rumoured locations but nothing has been confirmed. An announcement is expected next week!
Pacman is the current WBO welterweight champion and is a big money bargaining tool whether he wins or looses, but if Khan comes victorious you can see him chasing the Danny Garcia rematch, or Keith Thurman.
If Khan looses, Brook will demand more of the percentage split than 30%, and rightly so as Khan would be coming off back to back losses, with no title.
