Amir Khan vows to ‘punish’ Kell Brook and end friendship talk after mass racism erupts ahead of hate war

AMIR KHAN has doubled down on his Kell Brook racist accusations after his bitter rival said he would ‘crack his poppadom chin’.

The proud British Pakistani has been engaged in a war of words with his Saturday night rival for 10 years but it took a more sinister turn on Thursday.

The 35-year-old Bolton player has been waiting for the big fight press conference to push Brook into the filmed slur – which the Sheffield man insisted was not racially motivated – and then vowed to punish him for it tomorrow.

The 2004 Team GB silver award winner said: “I don’t usually talk about issues of racism because sometimes I think it could just make things worse.

“But, when someone says something like that, it gets you hooked and it puts me in a proper slump.

“I was really surprised when I saw that video, it was very sad, because I would never have thought of Kell.

“Not only did he dig at me but also my religion and my race, racism is not nice and he knows exactly what he means and he needs to be beaten for it.

“People need to see the real side of him. I’m sure he has fans in Pakistani, Indian and Asian communities, so he shouldn’t make such comments.


When asked if their overdue clash could still end with them fixing a match and eventually becoming friends, he said: “No, not after the race comment.

“He stopped hating me and being jealous but now he’s gone too far, it’s personal and too deep. I can’t be friends with a man like that.”

Former IBF Welding Champion Brooksalso 35 years old, from the respected and multicultural Ingle Gym and calculation Khan is playing the race card to try to turn the fan against him.

And he insists the testimony only alludes to Khan’s chin flaking and crumbling like a sundry curry.

“I’m not a racist character at all,” Brook said. “Khan is just trying to get people to side with him and against me.

“Look where I’m from, I’m not racist, he’s trying to throw me under the bus and turn people against me.

“I just want to say that his chin is as thin as a pair of underwear and breaks easily, that’s the only angle I want to talk about.

“There are no racist intentions at all.

“I have a lot of Pakistani, Asian and Indian fans, but also friends and workout partners in the gym, who I always have by my side anytime, anywhere. It’s a terrible thing for him.”
