Amir Khan vows to 'finish off' Kell Brook and mocks rival's 'smashed up eye sockets' ahead of bitter grudge match

AMIR KHAN has vowed to 'finish off' Kell Brook and mocked his rival's 'smashed up eye sockets' ahead of their bitter grudge match.

The 35-year-olds settle their long-running feud in Manchester on February 19, with bragging rights and reputations on the line.

As the trash talk intensifies, Khan was quick to goad Brook about his two fractured eyes sockets, suffered against Gennady Golovkin and Errol Spence Jr.

He told Sky Sports: "I think it comes down to how hard you've worked and how hard I've worked going into this fight.

"Obviously with the great sparring, the great game plan that we have for this fight and just go in there and hurt Kell.

"That's what I want to do. I don't want to go in there to just box him, I want to go in there to hurt him and to put him away.

"I mean, like I already said, he's already beaten, he's already got smashed up eye sockets, he's already been beaten, knocked out.

"So you know what, this is the time now where I just finish him off, finish his career off so he never needs to look at boxing again.

"This is going to be a nice payday for you Kell Brook, so you just get this payday, walk off and leave this sport happy."

Brook has accused Khan of swerving their legacy-defining fight until he ran out of options with no choice left.

"He gets destroyed. He gets beat, like I've been telling you for years," Brook said.

"He's getting beat, he never wanted this fight, it's me who's wanted this fight for the fans. They've got the fight now.

"He's always had it his own way, even in the negotiations, but he's not having his own way in two weeks time."
