Amir Khan has questioned whether Kell Brook is "serious" about fighting him, accusing his nemesis of complicating their potential showdown by changing his weight demands.
British boxing fans were desperate to see Khan and Brook battle it out in the prime years of their career, only for a highly-demanded domestic clash to fail to materialise over the past decade.
However, talk of a long-awaited meeting between the pair has resurfaced in recent months, with promoter Eddie Hearn revealing over the summer that he was hopeful of finally making it happen.
While they are no longer at the peak of their powers, it would still be fascinating to watch Khan and Brook go at it after years of trash talk.
Reports suggest a deal could be struck for the two bitter rivals to meet next year, which would provide them with the perfect way to bow out from the sport in their mid-30s.
Yet, Khan claims Brook is not serious about wanting the fight, reposting old footage of the Sheffield man agreeing to take him on at 147lbs and accusing him of going back on his word.

"Is he even serious about wanting the fight?! @SkySportsBoxing @SpecialKBrook".
Another blow for Khan and Brook comes in the shape of Hearn, who says he is now out of the running to stage the fight.
