Amir Khan v Kell Brook predictions: betting odds, free bets and live stream


Let’s get ready to… settle a domestic score!

OK, it doesn’t have the same ring to it as “rumble”, but Amir Khan and Kell Brook have been bitter rivals for over a decade and on February 19 the pair of Britons finally come together inside the squared circle.

At a catch-weight of 149lbs, Khan and Brook will go head-to-head over 12 rounds inside the Manchester Arena with nothing but bragging rights on the line.

For all the world title fights this pair have contested, it’s hard to imagine either man placing much more importance on any other fight than this one.

Let’s take a closer look at this long-awaited contest:

Khan v Brook stats for Manchester grudge fight

Amir Khan – “King”, Age: 35 – W34, L5, KOs21

Kell Brook – “Special One”, Age: 35 – W39, L3, KOs27

Sure, we all know that this fight is well overdue, but the careers of Amir Khan and Kell Brook should not be understated.

Both men are former world champions – Khan at super-lightweight and Brook at welterweight – and despite their critics for avoiding each other throughout their careers, both Khan and Brook have always gone searching for the biggest fights.

It’s been to their detriment, however.

Khan jumped up two weights to take on Saul Canelo Alvarez in 2016, suffering a brutal knockout at the hands of the pound-for-pound king and Kell Brook was similarly brave/stupid later that same year, suffering an orbital bone fracture after jumping up to middleweight to fight Gennady Golovkin.

Amir Khan’s current record reads as 34-5, with losses to Briedis Prescott, Lamont Peterson, Danny Garcia, Canelo Alvarez and Terence Crawford acting as the blots on his copybook.

Brook owns a 39-3 CV, sharing a loss to Terence Crawford as well as Gennady Golovkin and Errol Spence Jr.

The biggest difference between their two records is the number of big-name wins that Amir Khan has recorded in comparison to Brook.

Marco Antonio Barrera, Marcos Maidana, Luis Collazo, Paulie Malignaggi, Zab Judah and Devon Alexander have all tasted defeat at the hands of Khan, whereas a world title win against Shawn Porter is the only notable scalp for the Sheffield fighter.

Neither man has registered a marquee win in a number of years – their decline is at a similar rate, meaning that this contest as probably as close to a 50/50 that it has ever been throughout their careers.

Khan v Brook: When and where will happen?

We’re heading to the Manchester Arena for Khan v Brook on Saturday February 19 (ring walks approx: 22:30), in an arena that has had the privilege of hosting a number of huge fight nights.

Former world champions Mike Tyson, Naseem Hamed, David Haye, Joe Calzaghe, Carl Frampton, Carl Froch and George Groves have all fought here, with Ricky Hatton and Anthony Crolla making the arena their second homes for large periods in the 2000s.

Ricky Hatton’s 2005 win over Kostya Tszyu is arguably the most memorable fight that has graced the Manchester Arena, as the proud Mancunian secured the IBF and The Ring light-welterweight titles, subsequently retiring the fierce Australian.

Amir Khan’s last outing in Manchester came back in 2011 as he stopped Paul McCloskey in the 6th round of their world super-lightweight title fight, whereas Kell Brook has to go all the way back to 2009 and a British welterweight title fight win against Michael Lomax for his last Manchester fight night.

21,000 fans can squeeze into the Manchester Arena and there’s unlikely to be a spare seat in the house as the first bell chimes on February 19.

Khan v Brook fight predictions and betting odds

Amir Khan’s speed is going to be Kell Brook’s biggest hurdle to overcome on fight night.

Even at 35, the Bolton fighter’s fleet of foot and fast hands are capable of bamboozling Brook if he isn’t on the top of his game.

If Brook can navigate Khan’s movement over the first half of the fight, then his power may well prove the decisive factor in the second half.

If you fancy an early finish then 5/2 with bet365 says we won’t reach the 6th round.

Khan should slow down eventually and Brook will need to test the questionable whiskers of “King” Khan.

Neither man has gone 12 rounds since 2018 but one of your last things to go as a fighter is your power – one of the first is your punch resistance.

Brook to land a KO finish prices up at 5/4 with bet365, whereas a points win for the Winkobank Gym fighter is at 7/2.

Brook has been knocked out three times and you can get 7/2 with Paddy Power for Khan to get the stoppage in Manchester.

Khan v Brook Best Bet

Kell Brook to beat Amir Khan by KO, TKO or Disqualification at 5/4 with bet365.

We’ll soon find out how much either man has left in the tank, but our view is that Brook’s power will carry later into the fight and Khan will eventually let his defence slip.

Brook has an underrated jab and big power in his left hook – two punches that could prove pivotal in the latter stages of the contest.

Four of Khan’s five losses have come via knockout, with his weak chin a criticism that has followed him throughout his pro career.
