    It looks now as though Kell Brook will very likely continue fighting. So who should the in-demand British star face next?

    Some of the options mentioned so far by those around him; Eubank Jr, Danny Garcia, Conor Benn, Josh Taylor (forget Amir Khan).

    Who would you choose out of those 4 for him to face next? I think they’re all good, big fights. I’ll rule Taylor & Benn out because I don’t want to see Brook at 147 again. He’s better above that weight so I’ll go with Danny Garcia at 154, a very dangerous fight for Brook at this stage but also a winnable very exciting one. He wins that and he’s back in the mix at world level.

    Isn't he still bound by the rematch clause?

    I suppose the easiest and probably best chance of a PPV fight for Brook from a promotional perspective would be Eubank Jnr but I don’t see Jnr agreeing to 154 and at 160 I think would be disastrous for Kell.
    I don’t think Ben Charisma Bypass Shilom could sell a PPV fight against Garcia in UK although that would be a decent fight at 154 .
    Does Kell wait to see what Amir Cant is up to and would that generate cash again ???
    Go for Connor Benn which would be a decent pay night with reasonable risk but would mean dealing with Matchroom ?
    Personally apart from retirement and ignoring the rematch with Cant the Connor Benn looks to be most winnable for decent loot .

    There’s a rematch clause but Ben Shalom has been saying that definitely won’t be the next fight

    I personally would like to see him retire and go out on a high

    BUT if he is going to fight again...... out of the names mentioned I'd like to see him go in with Danny Garcia at 154

    It's a winnable fight, he wouldn't be draining himself and I think there styles would gel nicely so you'd get a good fight.

    - Eubank is too big
    - Benn is young, hungry and there would be a catch weight involved
    - Khan...... nobody is interested in seeing that again

    Ah, I'd not heard that.

    He should hang 'em up obviously but he won't now his stock has risen and there's money on the table, equally obviously.

    He needs someone with high name recognition to keep him relevant but lowish risk. Broner or similar? They can market it as a legacy fight or somesuch nonsense.

    Although a Garcia fight would be fun to watch, it should be a domestic rival. I'd say either Benn or Eubank Jr but weight will be an issue. Definitely not Khan.

    Solid post. Hang 'em up, or a fellow veteran with name value at a suitable weight before hanging 'em up. Neither of Junior and Benn are deserving.

    I don’t have a problem with Brook vs Benn next.

    Taylor looked poor in his last fight and again brook is probably good enough still to give Taylor a tough fight at welterweight.

    brook vs eubank would be suicidal, please just no.

    brook pretty much beats everyone at British level still.

    Avanysan is a good fight also leranjja vs brook could be fun
