Kell Brook retained his IBF welterweight title late in London late Saturday when he stopped fellow Englishman Frankie Gavin in six rounds.
Brook was an odds-on betting favorite going into the fight despite Gavin having a superb reputation from his amateur days when he won a world title.
But Gavin's fight plan turned out to be too passive and when the reigning champion found his full range in the sixth round he piled on the pressure and forced the stoppage.
Brook remains unbeaten with 35 wins, 24 by knockout, having taken the IBF title last year when he went to the United States to dethrone IBF champion Shawn Porter in California.
A routine first mandatory defense in March saw him quickly dispatch Romanian Jo Jo Dan with minimal fuss, paving the way for this quick return to action against British rival Gavin.
Now he wants to get British rival Amir Khan in the ring, but Khan has other ideas - like waiting for a crack at Floyd Mayweather Jr. on September 12th.
Brook may now face Brandon Rios on August 29th.
Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sports says there are plenty of options at welterweight for Brook.
"There’s a lot of fights out there for Kell. I'd love the fight between [Tim] Bradley and [Jessie] Vargas....the winner of that fight against Kell for two belts. That's a great fight as well. They’d love us to go to America to box Keith Thurman, which is a great fight - but I feel that we're still growing Kell here. I'd love to do something major in Sheffield. We definitely need a big name at the end of August," Hearn said.
