    Would love to see Kell beating the delusional Josh Taylor

    for me, Liam Smith would be a great match up

    or Conor Benn

    Charlo vs Castano winner.

    Brook get to fight at the weight he should be fighting and despite being past his prime he can probably still beat either Charlo or Castano to become a 2 weight WC.

    he'd have a chance for sure and I agree he should be at 154.

    if he cares about legacy that'd be the fight he'd go go for. But I doubt he will, cause he's never really seemed bothered about becoming a 2 weight world champ/properly campaigning at 154

    I think that the Benn fight at a fair catch weight of 151 is the way to go as it would be a big domestic fight sold out arena and probably the biggest pay day.

    If I had to pick one fighter I would go with Liam Smith but I'd really like to see Brook retire. He was not looking good a couple of years ago and the win over a completely shot Khan didn't mean anything related to Brook's current skill level. I really hope the thrill of the Khan win doesn't fool his family, friends, trainer and Kell himself into thinking he can still fight at the top level. I'd hate to see him get hurt.

    If he could drag Chris down in weight, I’d genuinely like to see the Eubank fight. It would be a massive fight, pay them both **** loads of money (and have a really good build up) and Brook could have a chance if he bulks up and boxes him. We know Chris has extreme limitations it will simply come down to whether he’s too big and strong.

    My gut is that he is and it’ll be a rubbish fight but none of the others really excite me.

    Lets be honest. Khan was the perfect opposition for Begin to look like a million dollars but Brook for all intent and purposes is washed up.
    If I managed him I'd be looking heavily at Benn as that is a nice payday in a very winnable fight for Brook.
    Then if successful match him up against 1/2 boxers in fights he has an 80% chance of winning to build up his name even more.
    Then I'd either match him up against an up coming fighter who is generating alot of buzz or a paper champion.
    But make no mistake it would have to be for a rather large purse as this would be his cash out fight.

    It would have to be Danny Garcia or Liam Smith for me.

    - Two guys who are of the same age and "era"
    - The fight would be at 154 and a fight where all would be comfortable... nobody getting dragged up or pulled down in weight.

    I don't see the Beefy fight coming off because this next Vargas fight is make or break for him. If he loses I think he calls it a day but if he wins, then he wants a world title shot... which Brook can't give him. But then again, it would be a big British fight and money does talk.....

    A fight with Garcia would sell on both sides of the pond, is winnable and will generate good money for both men... so an all round win win.
