Former world champion Amir Khan has continued a tough training camp, as he prepares for a long-awaited showdown with fellow former champ Kell Brook.

The two British rivals will collide on February 19 in Manchester.

Khan, 35-years-old, is working with new trainer Brian 'Bomac' McIntyre in Colorado. In the past Khan, Khan worked with veteran trains such as Freddie Roach and Virgil Hunter.

The Bolton boxer has been out of the ring since July of 2019, when he blew away late replacement Billy Dibb.

Brook is coming back from a knockout loss to Terence Crawford, which took place in late 2020.

Crawford, who trains under McIntyre, is helping Khan prepare for the contest.

Khan admits that he's been training through minor injuries that he feels confident won't affect him in any way in the upcoming fight.

“We all have injuries, sportsmen and women. When you're at the elite level, we always have to overcome them pains and override them. Yeah I've got pains and I've got injuries when I'm in training," Khan told Sky Sports.

“I've had to spar today and I still have to overcome them injuries, I can't think of them - I've just got to get on with them. My job is just to get ready for Feb 19 and obviously the aches and pains are there.

“As you get older - I'm 35 now - it's not like when you're 25 where you recover after a tough session. Now the body takes a bit of time but it's good because I know if I continue pushing myself with those pains and aches, then I'll be fine come fight night.”
