Conor Benn has thrown the gauntlet to Amir Khan and Kell Brook ahead of their much-anticipated domestic showdown, insisting that he would be ‘one million percent’ in ringside to declare the winner.

Khan, 34, and Brook, 35, are set to finally settle their bitter feud on February 19 after years of demand for an all-British welterweight clash between them.

Since they are now truly in the twilight of their respective careers, many believe that their highly anticipated meeting will serve as a swan song for both men.

But Benn, 25 and with 19 consecutive wins in the professional ranks to date, is determined to beat the winner in his next match.

“They both talk like their fight is a warm-up for me, so that’s fine,” Benn . said The sun.

“I will be ringside for their fight, one million percent. I’ll fight the winner, no problem, bring Khan or Brook, either one.

“When I hear them and their promoter describe them both as Britain’s top two welterweights, I totally disagree.

Brook previously held the IBF welterweight belt

“If anyone still thinks that these are the top two welterweights we have to offer, or that the winner of the fight is number 1, I’d like to clarify that right away.”

Benn is slowly becoming a household name after venturing into the sport as the son of British boxing legend Nigel Benn.

The Essex gunfighter maintains an impeccable professional record, with his explosive win over Samuel Vargas in April propelling him into the world-class mix.

His boxing training continues later this month in a test against respected American Chris Algieri, but Benn already has his eye on a potential mega fight with Khan or Brook.

“I’ve never called Brook before because I know him. But since he’s mentioning my name, he can have it too,” he added.

“I watched them both grow up as a kid and even when I first turned pro I saw them both as a fan so I would love to fight them. It would be a huge domestic struggle.

“I’d fight too, if they gave me the choice I’d flip a coin, I don’t care.

“Brook was punched by a jab against Terence Crawford and the other has bingo in his last few fights while he hasn’t boxed inflated featherweights like Billy Dib.”
