Amir Khan is understood to be considering invoking a rematch clause following his loss to Kell Brook last month; Brook settled a long-running feud between the British pair with a dominant stoppage win at the Manchester Arena

Kell Brook says he will give Amir Khan "another whooping" if his long-time rival chooses to invoke a rematch clause following their spectacular clash last month.

Brook settled a long-running feud by stopping Khan in a frenzied atmosphere at the Manchester Arena, with the pair appearing to make peace following a warm embrace at the end of the bout.

Most observers had expected Khan, who was dominated by Brook, to retire after the bout, but the Bolton fighter is understood to be considering taking up a rematch clause.

"If he wants another whooping he can have another whooping," Brook told Sky Sports News at the British Boxing Board of Control 2021 awards ceremony on Sunday.

"It was so one-sided, I don't know what he can say and come back to the table with.

"If he wants that rematch, I'll dust them gloves off and do it again."

Promoter Ben Shalom, who made the fight come together after years of failed negotiations, confirmed to Sky Sports News that Khan is considering a rematch.

"I think the word on the street is true - Amir Khan, he doesn't want to call it a day," Shalom said.

"He has spent a lot of time thinking about the fight the past couple of weeks and he feels like he had 10 weeks to prepare and Kell Brook had six months. So he feels hard done by. I don't know whether that fight is even possible, but he does have that rematch clause.

"For me, for Kell Brook it's time to move on, whether it's to retire or to fight one of the other names mentioned. I can't see it, but Amir is convinced, we will hear what his reasons are in the next few days and we'll have to take it from there.

"Whatever he (Khan) does, he's had a great career, just for me it probably was the time to hang up the gloves, but he feels very differently."
