I am subscribed to hatman but never heard this one. Not that I care if brook is gay or not. Infact it would add to the hilarious khan meltdown if he got KO'd by brook who then came out as gay considering the stick he's given him about the ridiculous rumours and the fact he's Muslim and would probably be disowned for losing to a homosexual.
Hatman has a patreon page where uploads podcasts that because of their content can't go on YouTube.

Recently he did one where he talked about the rumours about Brook and Khan's comments. In the podcast he played a Whatsapp audio message that someone whom is clearly from Sheffield and has insider knowledge sent to him. In the clip the person alleges he and several friends all socialise in the same circles as Kell and he's seen a lot of stuff.

He alleges he's physically seen Brook kissing a guy who has a reputation in the city as a gangster. That the entire Ingle gym knows Brook is into men but they don't say anything. That Brook told Johnny Nelson's wife that he hates living a lie and she and Johnny have known for years he's secretly gay when and he (the alleger) was at their house doing some work forn them one time he brought the subject up they started laughing, surprised that he knew about it. That Brook parties hard even to this day, goes missing for days at a time and doesn't tell his wife where he goes because she calls around looking for him. That the stabbing incident happened because Brook met a guy in a bar, ditched the lads he was out with to go back to this guys flat with the intention of scoring some coke but the guy wanted sex first.

Dunno what I make of it all but Hatman certainly thinks the anonymous guy who sent him the WhatsApp audio saying all this has credibility. I honestly don't care if Brook is gay, I don't anyone does really. It's just it would explain a lot. Why Khan despises him so much and won't risk losing to him. Why he won't ever give details about the stabbing. Why Hearn has hinted about him having lifestyle issues in the past. It's all very dark.

That last Kell Brook fight...:lol:
No Trail.THIS is the last. But seriously they've both gone backwards and both should pack in. Losing to Crawford is expected and he will. Losing to Brook is an entirely different matter. It was always a 50 50 fight and still is. I always thought it WOULD happen, but it won't now. Amir retires after it.

There are dozens of strong reasons why Khan hasn't fought Brook (or will ever)....

- keeps pursuing better opportunities
- resentment towards British fans
- resentment towards Brook / Matchroom
- risks / consequences of losing

....and so on.

Khan's critics and Matchroom advocates will continue highlighting the last one (which, by the way, is something every fighter considers every fight), but it's disingenuous to claim that's the only or main reason. With everything considered -- especially how Brook / Matchroom have attacked Khan's career over past 8 years -- I don't blame Khan one bit. It's also no different to how Hatton ignored Witter. And Hatton never even got a fraction of the heat that Khan gets.

So yeah, glad the fight isn't happening next. And seeing the chances of it dwindle fight by fight, as Khan continues to troll.

If Khan doesn't fight Kell Brook, people in this country will always say 'wait... who's Kell Brook?'

This is exactly it. Brook needs Khan otherwise his entire career is a who cares event. I can't stand Amir, but he is up with the most known fighters we have ever produced and has a load of success to back it up with too.

1. He hasn’t kept pursuing better options, he’s fought Canelo & Crawford in the last 6 years, nothing else comes close to the Brook fight.

2. The British fans only resent him because he won’t give them the fight they want, he used to get cheered & big followings, for example he packed out Newcastle arena for the Kotelnik fight. They’d cheer him even if Brook flattened him just as long as he had the bravery to take the fight. Groves got flattened by Froch but was cheered like mad a couple of years later when he won the world title as he’d made the fight the public wanted

3. There’s no resentment towards Matchroom, he’s fought on their shows.

4. It’s all about the double pay day for Khan. He can keep getting beat by superstars like Canelo, Crawford & like he called out Mayweather & Pacquaio because it doesn’t damage his reputation & he knows the Brook fight will be there after but he wouldn’t for example fight a Thurman or Porter as they knock him out but it kills the Brook fight.

Sounds like a load of shite, Hat man? Is that the lad that was in front row when Khan supposedly got robbed against Lamont Peterson?

Post one of these podcasts or bugger off.

I agree with others that this fight is long and gone, but Khan has ducked Brook. All the interviews I've watched from Khan, he looks noticeably uncomfortable talking about Brook. Let's be honest, he took Crawford because it makes him look better when he gets KTFO. Why would he wanna get knocker out by Brook? Nevertheless both are shot.

I don't buy any of this 'Khan knows he is going to lose to either so he chose Crawford instead of Brook' bullshit.

I am sure Khan doesn't want to lose to anyone. But accusing someone of ducking an opponent when they fight a better one instead, and one who holds a title, is just plain daft.
What?

You can duck someone quite specifically, whilst also taking on a harder fight. What's hard to get about that?

He knows at this stage Brook's only chance of a good payday is a fight with him. So he'll refuse to fight him in order to make sure Brook doesn't get the payday.
