Kell Brook Has Some Big Fight Options in America
Kell Brook could have plenty of big-name American options for his next fight, promoter Frank Warren has revealed.
The current WBO number one at welterweight is patiently waiting for his crack at a world title.
And Warren has had talks with counterpart Bob Arum for a potential clash with unbeaten American Mike Jones.
Brook could also be in line for a crack at Cornelius Bundrage, or even Miguel Cotto.
In Warren's latest column for The Sun, he revealed that Arum had spoken to him about Cotto - as well as Jones.
Cotto is a three-weight world champion who currently holds the WBA light-middleweight crown.
Bundrage is also a world champion at 154 pounds, and holds the IBF title.
A former Contender star, he may be a more realistic opponent for Brook than Cotto.
However the unbeaten former British champion may be tempted to stay at welterweight and wait on Manny Pacquiao giving up his WBO strap.

[QUOTE=Sparked_1985;10152357]Brook can't be that good. That's why Warren hasn't spent any money on decent opponents for him. Now Warren has so many good fighters he can afford to cut the wheat from the chaff. I'm a Brit nuthugger to the…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (28)
