KELL BROOK's American debut on December 17 is looking more and more likely to happen. Brook wants to get some much needed exposure in America before he targets a world title shot against either Andre Berto or Amir Khan next year.

Unbeaten Brook, 25, won a WBA world welterweight title eliminator on Saturday when he stopped Poland’s Rafal Jackiewicz in the sixth round.

Brook’s promoter Eddie Hearn now plans to have the Sheffield boxer fight on the undercard of Nottingham’s Carl Froch against American Andre Ward in a super middleweight world title unification clash in Atlantic City.

But Bolton’s WBA world light-welterweight champion Khan, 24, has claimed he wants Brook or Manchester’s Matthew Hatton to be his first welterweight opponent next year.

Khan intends on stepping up a division after his clash against American Lamont Peterson on December 10 and Hearn says a fight against Brook ‘must’ happen next year.

“We are looking to get Kell out in America in December and then a big fight next year, maybe against Andre Berto or Amir Khan,” said Hearn.

“Kell against Khan is a fight that this country must see in 2012 and we have to push to make it happen. There are no excuses for Khan.”

So what ameribums are available for the dec.17 date? Carson Jones or Brad Solomon comes to mind.

Kell Brook needs to step up in competition real soon. I think his style and power will get exposed at the higher level if he doesnt face quality opponent. A few fighteers I think he should face the winner of the Collazo-Hernandez bout or Matthew Hatton or Paulie Malignaggi, then face Mike Jones, ...

Brook against Khan? Woh.. That would be a great fight but I cannot see Khan taking any risks against a tricky fighter like Brook who has been a Welterweight for a considerable time. Hatton would be far easier to fight and predict (for a UD). With Brook who knows?
