Khan, 34 years old, defendant 35 years old Brooks just join the titleless battle to get the last day of retirement.

But Sheffield’s former IBF lightweight champion shot back the same at the former lightweight champion and revealed how Khan plans to make a few extra bucks before the bell rings.

Brook revealed, “He was a drama queen, he had a terrible ego, while I was a lowly kid who wanted to fight at all costs.

“I know what we have to do to make this fight, bend over backwards, and I know this fight is only happening because of me.

“If I go over a pound, I have to pay £100,000. Every pound is £100,000 so I can’t afford to do that.

“It makes it interesting and exciting but I am preparing him now and waiting for this to be confirmed has put me on a bad path before.

“I’m happy to put things on hold and finish this fight.”

The logo of Bolton Khan, who won the 2004 Olympic silver medal at the age of 17, is the first name on the poster and is the A-side of the match.

So he revealed he has the power to enforce strict and potentially costly limits on the clash

King Khan roared: “I am getting the lion’s share because I am the bigger one.

“The fight was at 149lbs because Kell Brook couldn’t make 147lbs.

“If I said no to the weight limit I would have to admit it again so I gave him permission but there will be extremely severe financial penalties if he loses weight.

“If he exceeds 149 lbs then there will be a penalty because I let him be the bigger man.”

The pair were excluded from their chance to face-to-face, and Brook admitted that he nearly hit – or knocked out – his enemy.

He confirmed: “I really wanted to hit him. I want to do that because this isn’t a fighting game, it’s a fighting game and the adrenaline kicks in and I want to strangle him.

“The importance means that it will be very difficult to control ourselves, once we have the arena set up, I can see us throwing all our training and tactics out the window and just find it in a phone box.”

And Khan thinks he can use Brook’s rage as a weapon against him.

“I knew he was angry and wasn’t the best responder so he took the opposite footing, I’ve already fended him off,” he said.

“The fight is done now so he should let go of all the hate but he holds it all back and I think that could be a huge letdown for him.

“I can see how hurt he is by everything and I think that could be his downfall.”
