With just under a month to go until British rivals Amir Khan and Kell Brook meet in Manchester, it has now been revealed that a rematch clause has been put in the contract for the February 19th showdown.

However, this recent revelation has split boxing fans and experts, including The DAZN Boxing Show's Ak and Barak.

"I like Amir Khan, I like Kell Brook, those guys were great fighters in their prime. At one point it was a massive fight for the UK and for all of boxing, we all wanted to see that fight," Ak said on The DAZN Boxing Show

"But, I’m not so excited about seeing the first one, you think I’m worried about the rematch?"

Barak on the other hand was more enthusiastic about the fight compared to his presenting partner. While he doesn't expect either Khan or Brook to challenge for world titles, he's just glad to see the two former world champions finally go head-to-head. 

"We’re talking about two former champions fighting and they were both at the top of their game in their divisions.

"Amir Khan was at the top of his game at 140lbs, and Kell Brook at one time was the best welterweight in the world."

Barak then went onto say: "That’s why I want to see this fight, they’re not too far past their prime, they’re exactly the same age, 35, just get in shape enough to fight each other. I’m not looking to see them fight Errol Spence, we’re just looking to see them fight each other."
