  • Top Rank putting Crawford Khan bout together

He believes - win or lose against Crawford - the fight with Brook will still be around.

Crawford (34-0, 25 KOs), 31, of Omaha, Nebraska, who has won world titles at lightweight and then became the undisputed junior welterweight world champion previous year, moved up to welterweight in June and knocked out Jeff Horn in the ninth round of a one-sided fight to take his title.

Khan said he thinks a fight will happen next year but warned Brook not to wait too long before accepting a deal.

"There have been discussions with Team Khan as well as an offer made and hopefully the fight can be put together", Top Rank vice president Carl Moretti told ESPN on Monday.

Brook and Khan are both signed to Matchroom Boxing and are represented by Eddie Hearn, but Brook has been reluctant to finalize a deal due to a hydration clause that would limit Brook from adding more weight between the weigh-in and morning of the fight.

If the report of Khan fighting Crawford are true and the fight does take place next for each fighter, then it would mean the further delay of a long-awaited British grudge match between Khan and Kell Brook. "Fighting for a pound for pound title would be unbelievable". The pound-for-pound title is back in the welterweight division. That's the reason I did the deal with Eddie Hearn.' Khan has not boxed in the USA since his stunning knockout defeat by Canelo Alvarez in May 2016. After almost two years out, he returned to the ring in April this year with a first-round stoppage of Phil Lo Greco before climbing off the floor to beat Samuel Vargas in September. He had been in talks over a fight Brook, which he hopes could land at Wembley Stadium next year. The Kell Brook fight is always going to be there - he's not going to go anywhere.

Welterweight world titleholder Terence Crawford has been trying to land a fight with a big-name opponent and he just might get it for his next assignment, which is penciled in for March 23 at Madison Square Garden in NY. Collazo has reportedly agreed to terms on the fight, but Crawford has yet to sign the contract.
