Jeff Horn has reaffirmed his desire to challenge for a world title again but admits money will probably be the major motivator for his next fight.
That makes a clash with Anthony Mundine a distinct possibility, with Horn's management set to meet the veteran's camp this week to continue preliminary discussions over a bout that could net him several million dollars.
But the 30-year-old won't make a decision for at least a few more weeks as his promoter Dean Lonergan is keen to canvas all possible options, including a rematch with Manny Pacquiao.
His trainer Glenn Rushton's long-term goal is to line up another shot at Terence Crawford within two years - this time on home soil.
Horn arrived back in Australia on Wednesday morning, having taken a short holiday in Canada following his crushing defeat to Crawford in Las Vegas this month.
"It makes me feel hungry to get that world title back," he told reporters. "The Pacquiao fight is probably the highest on the list, because everyone reckons I didn't win that fight. I'd love to do it again.
"[Mundine is] definitely a possibility. I don't really care. Whatever the dollar signs are the most (is my preference) in these future fights."
Immediately after his WBO welterweight title loss, Lonergan memorably said the idea of a Mundine fight appealed to him as much as "drinking 10 cups of warm sick". While he has softened his stance a little, the Duco Events boss is exploring other potential opponents.
"I promise you this: what we come up with might surprise you," Lonergan said.
Pacquiao is slated to face Argentine Lucas Matthysse on July 15 but there are doubts the bout will go ahead.
The likes of Jesse Vargas and Adrien Broner have also been floated but one new name is Lithuanian Egidijus Kavaliauskas. Kavaliauskas is No. 3 in the WBO rankings and available in mid-November, when Horn - who's slipped back to No.9 - plans to return to the ring.
However, he's unbeaten in 19 fights and has won 16 of them by knockout.
"It's a tough fight but if we take that fight and win that we're right back in contention for the number one spot and maybe the mandatory," Lonergan said.
