Kell Book Looks at Jeff Horn, Jessie Vargas, Smith as Options

Kell Brook is pondering his next move after a long-awaited showdown with Amir Khan again failed to materialize.

The prospect of domestic rivals Brook and Khan finally settling their verbal sparring in the ring appeared a distinct possibility until the latter opted to take a WBO welterweight title bout with Terence Crawford.

Brook potentially has a few options in the pipeline, with a fight against Jessie Vargas - who like the Sheffield scrapper is promoted by Eddie Hearn - at welterweight mooted.

Jeff Horn - a former WBO champion - has spoken of a desire to face Brook at 154lbs, while Liam Smith also said he could face the 32-year-old in the future at super-welterweight.

"Yeah, Jeff Horn's a name, an Australian fighter," Brook told Sky Sports.

"I've heard his [Vargas] name being mentioned. He is a name, he's been in with some top operators. The options are there, they've got to make good business sense, and overall the right fights for us.

"There's many options for me. It's not like I haven't got any options. I'm a known name in America from fighting [Errol] Spence and beating [Shawn] Porter, and fighting [Gennady] Golovkin. My name is there, it's relevant.

"These names, these top fighters, we can make those fights happen, and that's what we're going to be doing. I wouldn't mind going to America now. I've boxed at Sheffield Arena, a lot of times in England. I've boxed a couple of times in America. It would be nice to fight some big fights in America.

"Me and Liam Smith have been mentioned before and if they announced me and Smith. I think the fans would like the fight. It is a good fight, I’ve sparred with him a few times before. He’s better than I thought, he’s a very good fighter, so I think it is possible that fight could be made."

Horn at 154 would be bada** keen for that but Brook can't deal with the Jeffinators power and pressure. Vargas is a safe option.

[QUOTE=hitking;19448736]I like this fight for Brook. Harrison is the weakest belt holder. And beating him would likely entice Spence to move up and rematch Kell at some point this year.[/QUOTE] It's an OK fight for Brook, quite risky imo with…
