Now that both the fighters are at the end of their careers, Khan and Brooke have put their ego aside to give boxing fans what they have been doing for so long.
Khan hasn’t been in action for more than two years, last defeating Billy Dibb in a fierce fight in the summer of 2019.
He previously lost a world title fight at welterweight against pound-for-pound star Terence Crawford, whom he knows from training in Nebraska prior to his clash with Brooke.
And it was Crawford that Brooke last fought in November 2020, when Bud stopped Special K in the fourth round of a Las Vegas match-up.
In a fight that could define the careers of both fighters, Brooke and Khan will put it all on the line when they meet in the middle of the ring at the AO Arena in February.

What has been said?
KHAN Said: “Over the past 10 years I’ve fought two of the best pound-for-pound best fighters.
“I never ran out of kale. I’ve never needed it. What I’ve achieved speaks for itself.
“There’s no point in crying about the past. He didn’t deserve this fight in the past. Come February 19, it’ll be time to see if he can back up those words.
“I’m coming down the level with this fight. I’ve fought the best fight in the world. I’ve won America.”
“But people want to see me punching him in the face.
“Now is my time to put him in his place and move on to bigger and better things.”
To suffer Said: “He is in cuckoo land.
“You are getting cleaned out. I will spark you. Only then will Aamir Khan take the field for the last time.
“He’s always been distracted, he never respected me, never accepted me.
“He has said: ‘Win a world title then I will fight you, will fight this man then I will fight you’. He has run away.
“It’s gotten to a part of his career where there’s nowhere else for him to run.
“I’ve wanted it for many years.”
