In November past year, Khan said he still wants a fight with Kell Brook, but admitted they both need to rebuild their careers with wins before settling their long-running rivalry.

"It's something I would consider", Spence Jr exclusively told Sky Sports, when asked about facing Khan. It's got to happen pretty soon or I am done.

"He [Hearn] is the best in boxing, he's on top of his game at the moment and I know I can get to where I need to get to with him".

'It reminded me that boxing is what I love and of my passion for becoming a champion again'.

A fight between the pair has always been touted, however, never came to fruition as the two boxers camps could not agree terms.

If he really wanted the fight between me and Kell Brook he should not be speaking to me, he should be speaking to (my adviser) Al Haymon.

Fans will be hoping the partnership will eventually see Khan face off against Brook, but after the former IBF welterweight champion moved up to 154 pounds that showdown is slightly more complicated.

But Khan admitted his future looked bleak when the £31m fight against Pac Man was called off at the last minute.

"It doesn't take a genius to recognise that it brings the Brook fight closer".

"He hasn't boxed for a long time and Matchroom make things happen and make big fights in Britain, so I wasn't at all shocked", Brook said. We have got the same promoter and that's it.
