Provided no COVID-19 interruptions, Khan vs Brook will take place on Saturday, February 19, 2022, at the AO Arena in Manchester, England.

Amir Khan vs Kell Brook Fight Purse 2022

I don’t need to fight again

I live within my means, I am not like him and his wife flying first class everywhere. I am a council estate kid with plenty of millions so settling a grudge and giving it to the fans is what I am doing it for.

Brook said last year in The Telegraph.

Truth is, neither boxer is really hurting, but it isn’t like the payday won’t be worth it, especially for Brook. According to CelebrityNetWorth.com Khan has a $40 million net worth, much more than Brook’s value at $3 million. Both men, now 35-years-old, have major fights to their resumes, which has earned them a lot of money in their careers. Brook (39-3-0, 27 KO) is a former IBF welterweight champion, who has fought Gennady “GGG” Golovokin, Shawn Porter, and Erroll Spence Jr. in his career.

Spence Jr. and GGG are top-flight opponents, but they didn’t bring Brook quite the payday that Khan pulled from fighting Saul “Canelo” Alvarez back in 2016. That fight alone earned him $2 million in a losing effort, but money is money. At that time, Khan’s brand was heating up, which is why he and Brook couldn’t make things work. Khan was looking for a 70-30 split on the purse at that time, feeling he brought more to the table.

Khan’s feelings on the matter still haven’t changed, saying in The Telegraph,

That’s why I’m getting the lion’s share [of the purse].

Per the article, he’s looking to pull £5 million ($6,794,245 USD), compared to £3 million ($4,076,547). For every pound one of them may miss the 149-pound limit at the weigh-in, the penalty is six-figures.
