Amir Khan says he wants to take on new IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook at Wembley Stadium.

Brook, unbeaten with 33 victories, defeated American Shawn Porter on points in Los Angeles on Saturday night to win his first title, and immediately called out Khan.

"I know Khan doesn't like me. The fact is, he is getting it. I'm the champ of the world," Brook told Sky Sports. "The British public want it."

Khan, who is looking to take on Devon Alexander or Robert Guerrero in England this year, said he needs a "tickover fight" before a possible bout against Manny Pacquiao or Floyd Mayweather next year and Brook could fit the bill.

"If the fight can happen, let's make it happen," Khan told BBC Radio 5 live.

"I'm up for it. I think I'd like that in somewhere like Wembley Stadium, we can fill that out, that would be a quick sell.

"It's the fight that the UK fans want to see and have been talking about for such a long time."
