IBF welterweight world champion Kell Brook eyes Gennady Golovkin rematch but first must deal with a significant challenge.
That challenge is none other than American boxing wizard Errol Spence Jr later this month of course.
In many ways, the fight could be a lot more technically challenging for Brook than his fight with middleweight destroyer Gennady Golovkin was last year. Brook ultimately got stopped by ‘GGG’ from his sheer force in the end, content on walking the Englishman down on the night and utilzing little skill.
Speaking to Sky Sports today, Brook said of a possible ‘GGG’ rematch:
“I would love one day to get back in there with ‘GGG’ and have another tear up with him.”
The chances of that happening anytime soon are slim to none with Golovkin fighting Canelo Alvarez in a mega showdown this September.
Brook has to worry about Errol Spence Jr first up too of course, as he puts his belt on the line in Sheffield on May 25th against the unbeaten American. If Brook were to lose then that would be two fights lost on the spin, which would drop him back in the queue considerably.
A fight that many would love to see Brook in is the Amir Khan bout that has avoided both men for years it seems at this stage. Perhaps if Brook lost to Spence this could be a plan B, and would still be a massive fight not just in the UK – but still a decent sell worldwide too.
