EDDIE HEARN is planning to give Kell Brook a warm-up fight in December before facing Amir Khan.
The Matchroom promoter has been negotiating with the duo to set up a showdown in February or March.
Brook has reportedly agreed to fight Khan while weighing 147 lbs with no re-hydration clause.
And Hearn admits ‘Special K’ is set to step foot inside in the ring before Christmas.
Speaking to ESPN, he said: “It’s been in the mix for a while,
“With (Manny) Pacquiao not committed to a fight with Khan, (Brook-Khan) could be in February or March. We know it’s a huge fight. We’re looking at that,
“Brook may run out on December 8,”
Khan’s controversial re-hydration clause will restrict Brooks from putting more than 10 lbs on between the weigh-in and fight night.
Brook, 32, took to Twitter hitting back at Khan’s demands.
He said: “Please Mr. Brook don’t rehydrate and hurt me,
