Kell Brook: I'd Fight Hurd - But Lara is Horrible, Difficult To Sell

Former IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (37-2, 26 KOs) is hungry for a world title shot at junior middleweight.

Brook, after suffering back to back defeats, made his debut at 154-pounds two weeks ago with a second round demolition of Sergey Rabchenko in Sheffield.

Now Brook is scouting all of the world champions in his new weight division.

Next month, there will be a key matchup in the division when IBO/WBA champion Erislandy Lara collides with IBF champion Jarrett Hurd in a Showtime televised unification from Las Vegas.

Brook will keep a close eye on the fight and he does have interest in facing Hurd - should he win.

Hurd is the size of a super middleweight and generates amazement with his ability to make 154. He has an exciting come forward style with little regard for defense. 

"I've not seen too much about him. He's not the best out of the bunch, but he's still a world champion. I would be interested in him. I would be interested in them all, because they have got world titles," Brook told Sky Sports.

Brook does not share the same thoughts when it comes to the possibility of facing Lara, should the Cuban stylist walk away with three titles.

The Sheffield fighter believes the style of Lara would make their match a very tough sell - even in the UK, because the Cuban champion prefers to win his fights with a technical boxing strategy - and he takes very few chances. If Lara is dominating his opponent, he is content to sit back and box his way to victory for a lopsided decision win.

"He's negative, he's a horrible awkward fighter. He knows how to get a win, but he's horrible, he's not a crowd-pleasing fighter. It would be difficult to sell. I'm in boxing for fights that would sell and be exciting, and he's not really there," Brook said.
