Former welterweight champion Kell Brook had been hoping he would be preparing for a fight against long-time rival Amir Khan, but after the latest attempt at making the fight happen failed, Brook is now getting ready for his potential trip to New York.
Brook spoke to Sky Sports about what is next for his future and stated that he is currently training for a potential June 1 return to the ring. That fight would have him go to Madison Square Garden and compete on the undercard of Anthony Joshua vs. Jarrell Miller.
"My Dad has been speaking to Eddie and it's looking like we're going to be added to the AJ bill. The Anthony Joshua bill in New York. That would be a good box ticked. I've always wanted to box at Madison Square Garden and I'm looking for titles. I want some big names, so that's where we stand. Wherever the excitement is. I can still make welterweight. I believe this fight will probably be at catchweight, between 154 lbs and 147 lbs. We have this fight and then we move to a big name," Brook said.
After losing to Gennady Golovkin in 2016 and then losing his IBF welterweight title to Errol Spence Jr. in 2017, Brook moved up in weight to junior middleweight. Brook has won two straight, captured the WBC Silver title and is currently ranked No. 3 by the WBC in the 154-pound division.
The fight between Joshua and Miller will be for the unified WBA "Super," WBO and IBF heavyweight titles. That will lead a Matchroom Boxing card from Madison Square Garden that will be streamed in the United States on the DAZN streaming service.
