Brook calls out American duo

Kell Brook has called out Terence Crawford and Keith Thurman in a bid to land a fight with one of the big-hitting Americans.

Thurman has made no secret of the fact he would like to get it on with Brook in the former world champion's home town of Sheffield, while there were also talks for a fight for Crawford's WBO welterweight belt earlier this year.

'Special K' made the step-up to middleweight to fight Gennadiy Golovkin in 2016 but the Kazakhstan fighter was too strong for the British fighter.

Brook then jumped in at welterweight against the unbeaten Errol Spence Jr but the American proved a level above the Sheffield puncher.

Three low-key wins against Siarhei Rabchanka, Michael Zerafa and Mark DeLuca followed as the Briton looked to resurrect his career.

Brook is currently training in Fuerteventura with fellow British fighters Billy Joe Suanders and Josh Taylor and he has no doubts that he would accept a fight against either of the American duo should the opportunity arise.

"I'm staying busy and ready," Brook told Sky Sports. "I'm very keen on fighting Crawford. I think Keith Thurman has sprouted that he would love the British pound.

"He'd like the fight, so I'm keeping myself active in Fuerteventura with Josh Taylor, Billy Joe. They're a good bunch of lads out here. We're working hard."

Brook added: "I'm very light. I don't like to say what weight I am, but I'm very light, especially for me having no date.

"If it's Crawford, he'll be defending his title, so it will be 147. Thurman, it could be a catchweight. I can be ready for October, November for 147."

There's a big card of domestic action before any fight for Brook with Ted Cheesman's clash against Sam Eggington the main event .

Cheesman is theĀ 1.14 favourite for that all-British showdown with Eggington 5.00.
