Hearn: Mayweather vs. Brook Would Sell Out Wembley

Promoter Eddie Hearn has big plans for IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook. Following last Saturday's decision victory over Shawn Porter, Brook became one of three beltholders in boxing’s hottest division, with the other two champions being superstars such as Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

Hearn accepts that the new world champion is not yet on the pair's radar, but believes he could be considered after a few more notable wins.

"There are three champions in the welterweight division, Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao and Kell Brook," Hearn told The Morning View on Sky Sports News HQ. "It's wonderful company and a fight with either of those is a unification fight and a big fight.

"I think Kell has to establish his profile more in the States, command some more impressive victories, and then definitely in the mix for Floyd Mayweather in 2015. Why not?

"If Floyd fancies something special, I'm sure we wouldn't have a problem selling out Wembley with that one."
