Kell Brook made quick work of Kevin Bizier last Saturday to retain his IBF welterweight title and improve his record to 36-0. As for his next fight, Brook is looking to get a fight with fellow undefeated boxers, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Danny Garcia.
“You know, we’re both unbeaten. Bring him out, and I’ll take that zero and turn it into a one for him,” Brook told the Daily Mail. There is one small problem in that fight because Mayweather is already retired.
As mentioned in a previous report, “Money” has no current plans of coming back inside the ring despite receiving nine-figure offers. However, it should be noted that Mayweather has already come out of retirement once in his career.
If Kell Brook can’t get a huge money fight against a retired a boxer, he’s other option is Danny Garcia who has a record of 32-0. Garcia also holds WBC welterweight title after winning it last January by defeating Robert Guerrero.
“Danny Garcia, the WBC champion, I’d love that fight. Any of those big names, I’d get excited about fighting,” Brook told The Mirror.
However, Boxing News 24 pointed out that Garcia will probably face Amir Khan who will fight Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on May 7. Mayweather has also expressed interest in fighting Garcia if he ever comes out of retirement.
There are many other options for Kell Brook as the welterweight division is very stacked with talented fighters. He singled them all out in the post-fight press conference last Saturday.
“I’d love [Timothy] Bradley. [Keith] Thurman. [Shawn] Porter. Any in that hat, I’ll fight. Let’s unify the division and in time, we will move up,” Brook said via Boxing News 24.
The 29-year-old British boxer has punching power evidenced by his 25 knockout victories in his 36 wins. Brook is also the number one ranked welterweight in the world ahead of Manny Pacquiao, Khan and Bradley, per RingTV.
