Brook v Khan: Fight Time, TV Info And Jason Quigley's Big Preview
By Jonathan Byrne Updated

After years of bad blood and speculation, we'll finally get to witness Brook v Khan on Saturday night. And we've got all the info you need on the fight, including how to watch Brook v Khan and a preview from Jason Quigley, who knows Kell Brook well.

There's no love lost between the two British boxers and that's been evident in the build-up, with a fiery press-conference midweek helping build the anticipation for the fight.

Now with both boxers at 35 years of age, the stakes are different for this one. There are no titles on the line, no rankings concerned. It's bragging rights on the line.

'King' Khan last featured in 2019 in Saudi Arabia with a fourth-round TKO victory over Aussie Billy Dib. 'Special K' lost to Terence Crawford in late 2020 in his last outing.

Here are all the details:

Jason Quigley's Predictions

WBO-NABO middleweight champion Jason Quigley has weighed on his predictions for Brook v Khan and who he thinks will get their hand raised on Saturday night.

The Donegal-based boxer has trained with Kell Brook in the past but has tried his best to put bias aside and assess the stylistic matchup of the two former champions.

"I'm actually buzzing for this fight, I really really am," Quigley said. "Obviously part of me because I've been in camp and I've trained with Kell for a number of years."

"The buildup for this fight as well, it's something been something else. They're really pushing this fight as well and I think they're doing an amazing job. Khan and Brook really hate each other."

They aren't playing up to the fans and they aren't trying to sell this fight. The fight sold out inside of three minutes I think. The tension is there, they really really do hate each other. I'm buzzing for this fight, I think it's really going to be an exciting fight. This fight could even be better now than it was years ago.

Quigley reckons their experience and mileage could be a positive on Saturday night. He expects to see an exciting bout when the bell rings for Brook v Khan in the AO Arena.

"The two of them have slowed down a little bit more. They're going to get hit a wee bit more. It's going to draw them into a battle even more."

"For the hardcore fans that want to see knockouts and want to see blood and want to see boys on the canvas, they're going to get it in this fight I think."

What about the prediction? Quigley says he had to see the weigh-in to make his decision, given that Brook has had issues with his weight in the past.

"(Kell) actually came in underweight. He looks in incredible shape. That's only taking away from Khan because Khan looks in incredible shape as well. "

"Kell looks in great condition - doesn't make Khan look in as good of condition. If you watch Khan through the years, he's probably in one of the best shapes that he's come into a fight as well."

I think it's going to be a very interesting fight early on. Obviously Khan's speed and footwork, he's going to try and outbox Kell early on. I think Kell's game plan has to be to hit Khan and hurt him hard early on in the fight. Of course maybe three, four rounds just suss him out, see what he's made of, throw a few faints out there see what's happening, see what Khan's reaction is like. Kell is going to get on top of him midway through the fight and I think Kell is going to get him out of there with a knockout after six rounds.
