Kell Brook: I'll Be in Vegas, I Want Floyd Mayweather!

By Edward Chaykovsky

IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook is booking his plane ticket for Las Vegas. The unbeaten champion, who faces mandatory challenger Jo Jo Dan this Saturday night at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield, will be present - with promoter Eddie Hearn - at the MGM Grand on May 2nd.

If all goes well on Saturday, Brook will be sitting ringside as Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao trade punches for the WBO/WBA/WBC welterweight titles.

Brook appears to be tipping Mayweather to win and wants to fight him next with all of the four titles at stake.

"Me and Eddie Hearn will be out there in Vegas, enjoying ourselves, watching that fight," Brook told Sky Sports. "I want Mayweather. I want the best pound-for-pound fighter that everyone has titled him as. I want to fight the very best - I'm in my prime, I'm unbeaten, I'm world champion."

Brook is focused on Dan, but wants a huge fight in the summer.

"He’s got a similar record to me, he’s only lost a couple of fights. He looks determined to get the world title but you don’t get easy fights when you’re the world champion. My music, my arena, my country - I am going to go in there and just enjoy it all. That’s what it’s about - we’re not going in there to have a boring fight. It's about looking exciting, it's about the fans going away and saying 'what a night that was'. I want momentum, I want big fights in the summer," Brook said.

Just stay away from the gay bar scene. Take Ellerbe to your room for your man fix and you won't wind up with a scar on your damn leg.
