Britain’s welterweight rivals have been linked to each other for years and will now go head to head in February.
Khan, the former unified welterweight world champion, has been out of action since he faced Billy Dib in July 2019.
Meanwhile, Brook, who held the IBF welterweight title from 2014 to 2017, lost to Terence Crawford in November 2020.

Khan vs. Brook: What Was Said?
Amir Khan: “What I did in sport. The name I have. You can see how bitter it is.
“My celebrity status? It comes from what I have accomplished in the sport of boxing. It’s not because of other things.
“I had great performances, won world titles, made a name for myself in America. It all comes from boxing. How can you hate this?
“I capitalized on what I did in boxing. He hates it. He can hate me as much as he wants. Once I beat him he will hate me even more!
“Now I know he hates me, that will only make me train harder.”
“There are bigger names, more difficult fights. But I had to give that to the British fans.
“So I had to step back to give him a beating and show the British public who’s the best.”
Kell Brook: “It’s personal. It is not made up. We do not love each other. I have the grudge match of my career.
“I haven’t lost anything. I may be 35 years old. But Terence Crawford is 34, just like Shawn Porter, and they’ve just had an epic fight. Crawford is one of the best pound for pound.
“I still have the power, I still have the timing, the experience. It will be one of my best performances.
“It’s about bragging. Imagine – the one who loses has to live with it for the rest of their life. I’m going to go to hell in training.
“I looked into his eyes – he knows I’m coming. He never wanted this fight but he was put in a corner. I have wanted it for years.
