Amir Khan will pocket a cool £5m if he agrees to fight Sheffield’s Kell Brook.
That is the carrot promoter Eddie Hearn is dangling in front of the boxer who has lost out on an even bigger pay day when American superstar Floyd Mayweather snubbed him.
No mention has been made what purse would be offered to Brook - but it is clear that such a big domestic tear-up would secure his finances for the rest of his life. Khan has not responded to the offer. He may try and secure an American date with Devon Alexander, Adrien Broner or Luis Collazo, But Hearn was quoted by The Ring magazine as saying: “That £5million offer is still on the table and will remain there for the foreseeable future.”
