Hearn: Maidana Would Be a Dream Fight For Kell Brook

Promoter Eddie Hearn is sure Sheffield's welterweight starlet Kell Brook (27-0, 18KOs) is ready for world-title level boxing but will remain careful when selecting his next opponent. The 25-year-old put on a stellar performance on Saturday night to easily outpoint former European champion Matthew Hatton at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield in front of 10,000 adoring fans - and Hearn reflected on a superb night for his company.

He told Sky Sports Ringside:  "Maidana would be a dream fight. There's certain issues but he still holds the WBA light-welterweight title despite his loss at welterweight to Devon Alexander. All those kind of names - Maidana, Paulie Malignaggi, Sugar Shane Mosley - they're the names you want to bring out.

"Of course I can bring them over. With the support of Sky Sports and 10,000 fans, you can generate the numbers to bring over the big names - it makes things a lot easier. Brook is still learning. I know that's frustrating for people to hear but we need to choose the right fight at the right time and now it's a case of stepping up to that world title level."

Why not fight a welterweight
comment by olly1990, on 03-23-2012
maidana even sed welterweight didnt feel right to him so hearn is looking for a name that khan beat to try and promote a khan vs brook fight , maidanas next fight should be against brandon rios at junior welterweight.

[QUOTE=Queen_Leia]Kell Brook is garbage (so is Maidana I might add)... the first fighter he fights with a pulse would roast him.[/QUOTE] "garbage"?...That pretty much shows that you know f*ck all about boxing! Stick to another sport boy, as you quite clearly show a distinct lack of understanding...

[QUOTE=turbotime]The only reason he could want this is so that he can wipe the floor with him, call Khan out for struggling with him and try and hype a showdown with him.[/QUOTE] Fine with me. I'd love Khan's first fight at 147 to be a matchup with Brook. Do it at the MEN or the O2 and the...

Maidana Trash, no skill?? Alexander protected.:moon:
comment by Jensen_usmc, on 03-22-2012
The only reason why Alexander won, was because it was a 10 rounder, Alexanders hometown, and Alexander was allowed EXCESSIVE holding! That fight with Maidana should have been on neutral ground, theres clearly some suspicion with Ref. Smoger. although i do like Smoger, but sometimes Refs get intro...

maidana has no title last time i checked, go after a title Kel, or beat up a well known american not named money. you'll get mad respect by beating a mayweather or pacquaio left over aswell.
