Kell Brook: Terence Crawford Wants The Fight, Arum Does Too

Former welterweight champion Kell Brook is eager to get another crack at a world title at 147-pounds.

Brook has revealed that he personally spoke to WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford, who expressed his interest in coming together for a fight. Crawford's promoter, Bob Arum of Top Rank, is also interested in making that fight happen.

Last month, Brook snapped a 14 month layoff with a knockout of Mark DeLuca.

Brook's last few fights have taken place at junior middleweight, but he believes that he can still make the welterweight limit without issues.

"I saw Bob (Arum) out in America, I seen him walking through the lobby in the MGM Grand," Brook told Sky Sports.

"I basically went over and said: 'You're running out of opponents for Crawford and I'm the guy to beat him. I'm here.' I saw Terence Crawford, he said he was ready for it, so everybody is on the same page. Everyone wants to make the fight. We just need to make the numbers count for me, for it to make business sense for me, and then we can get training and get ready for the fight.

"The weight won't be a problem. Obviously, I'm going to have to get the steppers out, chase the kids around the house and that will help me get the weight off. I've got enough time. If we can agree on what we need to, we can get into gear and we can make welterweight for the world title championship of the world."

While Brook realizes the fight is likely going to happen in the United States, he also believes there is a chance that Crawford could come to the UK.

Crawford won his first world title on UK soil, when he traveled over to Glasgow to decision Ricky Burns for the WBO lightweight belt.

"It probably might be America, but I've heard them talk about Britain," said Brook. "We'll have to wait and see. Bob Arum actually said to me, he likes the sound of Britain. Bramall Lane. Have a win, it would be fantastic."

[QUOTE=revelated;20486925]Like I said, he offered Danny a pittance, then turned around and offered Amir Khan the payday he should have offered Danny. That's a duck, bro. Porter draws less than Spence, but Porter draws more than Crawford. Which is why…

[QUOTE=shaheed1972;20486752]1. It's not up to Crawford, a person doesn't have to accept the fight if Crawford's team makes an offer. He can only fight people that ACCEPTS the fight. For record he offered Danny a fight and Danny turned it…

Crawford and Arum smell easy money. Kell is going into old age living on the Porter fight. The only way this fight makes sense is at 154 in Sheffield, with the home town mechanisms in place.
