If newly crowned IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (33-0, 22KOs) is looking for a top level dance partner for his first defense in the fall, WBA interim-champion Keith Thurman (23-0, 21KOs) is willing to travel over to the UK.

Thurman was ringside on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, and saw Brook capture the title with a twelve round majority decision over Shawn Porter. Thurman, prior to the fight, said he was very interested in facing the winner.

Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya spoke to Thurman, who gave the green light for his promoter to put together a Brook fight in the UK - or at least attempt to.

"[I] talked to Keith Thurman last night, and he said he will go to the UK and challenge 'Special K' Brook,” De La Hoya wrote on the social networks.

Brook and his promoter, Eddie Hearn, mentioned Thurman as one of the opponents they would like to fight in the near future. Hearn and Brook have also focused in on Amir Khan, but Thurman - although viewed as the more dangerous option - would come at a much cheaper price.

Hearns already making sure he doesn't mention Thurman's name. I don't think this fight is going to happen. It seems Hearns sees $$$ and that's all that boxing is really about.

[QUOTE=peplz]Why should Ward do anything that Froch wants? He already beat Froch easily. Froch has no leverage. Since when is England the place to hold a big time fight. Groves and Froch in The U.K. makes since but Ward Froch is a Las Vegas fight or nothing.[/QUOTE] Las Vegas....lol. Ward-Froc...

[QUOTE=peplz]Ward is regarded as an idiot? By who? Dip *****s who like to complain and bicker on boxing forums on the internet..? Andre Ward is regarded as the #2 p4p fighter in the sport the last time I checked. He beat Carl Froch already. He is in a superior position in the sport to Froch. Carl...
