Brook and Khan are both promoted by Eddie Hearn and have finally agreed to fight next year.

Earlier today Khan said “nothing can stop” the fight between him and his rival Brook.

But Brook fired back saying there will be no rehydration clause.

He tweeted: “‘Please Mr Brook don’t rehydrate and hurt me.’

“This DIVA still thinks he’s a celebrity and in the Jungle rationing what I can eat??

“@amirkingkhan I’ll weigh in at 147, and then eat whatever I like #Khanivore #TooShookForBrook.”

The Bolton boxer said the pair had agreed on a 147lb fight with a ten-pound rehydration clause in the contract.

This would mean that Brook, who is big for the welterweight division, will not be allowed to gain more than ten pounds after the weigh-in.

Khan said: “Nothing can stop it. He’s agreed to be 147, and also have a rehydration clause of ten pounds. I’m happy with that.

“If he’s happy to take that, so am I. That fight can happen then 147 it is and we’re with the same promotional team, so that makes the fight even easier. Let’s see what happens.”

Khan also said he has left the negotiations down to Hearn who will mediate between the two fighters’ teams.

He added: “Obviously me and Brook are with Eddie Hearn.

“I’ve left all the negotiations to Eddie, to speak to both parties, to speak to his trainer, his manager, himself.

“But look, it’s a fight I would love to have and I think it would make a lot of money financially for both fighters but at the same time it would be a massive fight in the UK.

“It’s a fight that the fans want. Why not make it happen?”

It is unlikely the fight will take place this year because it will need a big build-up.

Khan added: “This year, I think will be difficult. It will be probably next year, because we are coming towards the end and obviously we would want to promote that fight to be a mega fight.

“We want to make it the biggest fight probably in Britain for a long time.

“The way we do that is by promoting it the right way, and having a good training camp, so that way, there are no excuses.”
