Amir Khan vs kell brook

After the opening bell, Amir Khan tried to impose his style by keeping his distance using his jab and agile footwork, however, a couple of punches from Kell Brook were enough to put Khan in bad conditions, even raising the possibility of seeing a KO in the first round.

The course of the first rounds was quite repetitive, where although Khan landed a good number of punches, it was noticeable that they did not carry enough power, so Brook began to feel more and more confident and exerted more and more pressure, repeatedly taking Khan to the ropes and submitting him with heavy blows.

In the 5th round, Brook’s superiority is already noticeable, who continues to send Khan backwards and continues to connect punches with great forcefulness, and the latter practically did not respond to any of these attacks. Already in the 5th round it was foreshadowed what would be the end of the fight, which took place in round 6, where Brook came out determined to end the actions and after a large volume of punches, which had no response from Khan, the referee decided to stop the fight and give the winner to the local by TKO.

This is what it was like at the Amir Khan vs Kell Brook weigh-in ceremony (via Sky Sports).

Overall, it was somewhat disappointing to see the level of Amir Khan, as there was much speculation in the lead-up to the fight that it would be an even bout and that it would pit two former champions who were really very good boxers a few years ago against each other, so both will leave everything in the ring. However, the fight was quite one-sided, Brook looked better in all aspects and therefore, beyond being an attractive fight, no doubt the fans expected a more competitive fight.
