The Olympic silver medallist has been gunning for Brook’s  IBF welterweight belt for some time now, but he’ll have to wait a bit longer now after Brook announced his next opponent would be Canadian Kevin Bizier.

Khan has not taken the news well, and decided to share his thoughts on the fight with his Twitter followers.
