Amir Khan has raised the prospect of an all-British fight against Kell Brook, as his hopes of a match with legendary fighter Manny Pacquiao diminish.

The 28-year-old from Bolton had hoped to be Pacquiao's final opponent.

"It just seems Pacquiao doesn't want to fight me," he told BBC Sport, naming Danny Garcia, Lamont Peterson and Sheffield's Brook, 29, as alternatives.

Sedgefield boxer Bradley Saunders says ongoing problems with his hands have forced him to consider retiring.

Saunders lost his unbeaten professional record when he was disqualified for headbutting Renald Garrido last month during a bout in which he ruptured ligaments and tendons in both fists.

Unified world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko has agreed to face undefeated Briton Tyson Fury in Dusseldorf on October 24.

Klitschko will put his WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO titles on the line against Fury, who boasts an unblemished record from 24 professional contests with 18 knockouts.

The outspoken 26-year-old has regularly spoken of his desire to dethrone Klitschko and is confident in doing so, although the veteran Ukrainian will enter the bout as a strong favourite.
