Kell Brook lost as a professional for the first time when his IBF and WBC middleweight title fight with the fearsome Gennady Golovkin ended in a fifth-round stoppage.
He will be operated on during the coming week after his right eye socket was broken, but has already spoken of his intention to return at light-middleweight.
Who are the likely contenders for his next opponent?
Amir Khan (Light Middleweight)The fight Brook has long wanted, and which would be the biggest either can expect in the UK.
Saul Alvarez (Light Middleweight)Many consider a fight between Mexico’s Alvarez and Golovkin as the biggest in the world. The 26-year-old appears in no rush to fight the man from Kazakhstan, however, and with Brook said to have impressed American television network HBO on Saturday night he may be considered as a suitable opponent. Alvarez next fights Britain’s Liam Smith for the WBO light-middleweight title on Saturday.
Plenty of heart and skill shown by Brook. Think he could be a stud at 154. Don't want to give Canelo ideas but that would be interesting.— Brian Campbell (@BCampbellESPN) September 10, 2016
Liam Smith (Light Middleweight)The 28-year-old defends his WBO light-middleweight title against Alvarez on Saturday. In the event of victory or defeat – the former is expected – a match-up against Brook would have widespread appeal. The weight would also suit each fighter, but how likely an agreement is between rival promoters Frank Warren and Eddie Hearn, who respectively work with Smith and Brook, is in doubt.
Thought it was great decision by Dominic ingle, it's his fighter since day 1, save him for another day, was only going one way that fight.— Liam Smith (@LiamBeefySmith) September 10, 2016
