Kell Brook has identified Brandon Rios as the "perfect candidate" for his next fight.
Brook made the second successful defence of his IBF world welterweight title on Saturday night with a sixth-round stoppage of Frankie Gavin as he took his unblemished record to 35-0.
The 29-year-old now wants “all-action” bouts against the best fighters in the welterweight division and is keen to make Rios, the American who lost to Manny Pacquiao in 2013, his next victim.
He told Sky Sports: “I want massive names. I want to get up for big fights now.
"They are talking about Brandon Rios and that really excites me because we all know that he loves to have a fight and he is entertaining for the fans, and that’s what I want to give. I want to give an all-action fight and he is the perfect candidate for the job.
“His team is saying that he is going to come over and knock me out, so bring that challenge on. I’m more than willing to take Brandon Rios on and perform in front of my British fans again.
“The world is my oyster. I’m in lead position and I’m unbeaten. Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather, Keith Thurman, Brandon Rios, [Marcos] Maidana – the list goes on. There are that many of them and every one will be such an exciting fight, so I am in a blessed position.”
Arguably the biggest fight for Brook would be against Amir Khan, who defeated Chris Algieri in New York on Friday night.
However, with Khan still determined to seal a bout with Floyd Mayweather, Brook once again reiterated that a fight against his fellow Briton no longer interests him.
He added: “It’s getting a bit old that. I’m going down my route and I’m world champion, so I’m defending [against] all these fighters who dare to get in and fight me and want to be a world champion.
“He obviously doesn’t want to be because he is not picking the phone up for the fight, so leave him to whatever he is doing.
“I have no injuries and I am going to be fighting again in the back end of the summer and performing on a big, big bill."
