| Last updated
Kell Brook stopped Amir Khan in round six to end their blood feud with an incredible and ruthless performance.
Khan and Brook have been linked with a big-money fight for years and fans finally got it with both men eager to get at it.
A lengthy delay due to an issue with Brook's gloves then saw 'Special K' change them while in the ring waiting for Khan to come out.
That didn't faze him however and he rocked Khan with a massive shot in the first round.
Brook managed to stay in control early and nailed his opponent once again in the third.
Khan absorbed massive punishment and started to weaken in the fifth, as Brook started to manage his emotion.
Round six brought the final blow as Brook didn't hold back with his monstrous flurry and forced referee Victor Loughlin to call for the bell.
Despite the bad blood in the build-up, the duo embraced in a massive show of respect.

Khan lost the fight but what can't be disputed after that is his heart.
The Bolton native didn't want to chuck the towel in and if allowed, he'd probably still be out there battling away.
Definition of going out on your shield.
It was confirmed post-fight that there is a rematch clause which means the Brits could go at it again in the future.
Despite that, Khan hinted this could be the end of his boxing career:
He explained per Michael Benson: "I need to sit down with my family.
"That love for the sport is not there anymore like it was before. I felt quite flat, I think that's maybe a sign I should be calling it a day, but let's see."
Brook made it clear he's keen to get it on with Chris Eubank Jr. down the road.
The 35-year-old told the crowd: "I've got three daughters, and they need these millions."
