Amir Khan believes the world will ‘never mention’ Kell Brook’s name again after he finishes him on Saturday night.
The British rivals have been touted to fight one another for nearly a decade, with contracts finally being signed and the date locked in for Saturday, live on talkSPORT.
For years, both men have bickered with one another and the vitriol and dislike has simmered to the perfect temperature for a British grudge match.
Brook has always felt like Khan avoided him, while the 2004 Olympic silver medallist never felt like ‘Special K’ was on his level.
Yet when the two men are left with just a referee to separate them on Saturday night at the AO Arena in Manchester, Khan believes it is he who will end their rivalry in conclusive fashion.
“Obviously Kell is trained, he’s ready and he says he is going to do X,Y and Z,” Khan told Drive on talkSPORT.

“I’m more than ready going into this fight, it is a massive fight. For us, for me especially, it is like going into a world title fight.
“Obviously I have fought all around the world, fought different names from all around the world and it is going to be amazing just to step back in that ring again.
“In front of my home crowd, to show them the fight that they have always wanted to see. They’ve always wanted to see me punch Kell Brook right through the head, give him a boxing lesson, beat him and obviously this could be Kell Brook’s last fight.
“I mean, the way I finish him on the weekend, I don’t think there will be anymore words or his name will never be mentioned to me again.”
Naturally, former welterweight world champion Brook is expecting a far different outcome and believes when he finally lands that one big shot, it will be enough to silence the former ‘I’m a Celebrity’ contestant.
“I’m not going out there hunting for a knockout, it never works,” Brook told talkSPORT.
“I just feel in my bones that I will find him and I will get him. But I have just got to stay focused, stay sharp and I really believe that I will get that shot in them 12 rounds.
“So when that shot comes, you will have to find out and tune in.”
