After his devastating TKO defeat to the ruling WBC middleweight king Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez last Saturday in Las Vegas, the former unified IBF and WBA light-welterweight champion Amir Khan has dismissed the possibility of fighting the current IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook, despite his plans to return to the welterweight division.

"I don't think that fight will happen, I'll give that a miss," said Khan.

The 29-year-old Khan successfully managed to secure a big fight with the Mexican boxing superstar for a title bout and a big paycheck. However, the lightweight silver medalist in the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece failed to win the belt and exposed himself to be too small to compete at 155 pounds.

Alvarez connected a heavy right hand to the chin of Khan in the sixth round that sent the British boxer lying flat on the canvass in brutal fashion.

The 30-year-old Brook, who is considered one of the best welterweight fighters in the world, has long sought a fight with Khan, but the  Bolton, Greater Manchester-born boxer is determined that he will not consider the Sheffield, South Yorkshire native as an option because of the extent to which he dislikes him.

"He's on his route, I'm on my route, and we just don't agree with each other. Basically, I don't like him and I'm not going to give him the fight." Khan stated.

Khan has already spoken of some names in the boxing world that he wishes to fight before he leaves the sport in three-to-four big matches from his recent fight.

He has mentioned the names of some of the famous boxers like Miguel Cotto, Danny Garcia, Timothy Bradley and even the Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao.
