Kell Brook could be in line to make his fighting comeback against Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez next Spring, according to Eddie Hearn.
Brook’s promoter revealed there is ‘interest’ in a May showdown from American cable network HBO, who screen the Mexican’s fights.
In the wake of Brook’s impressive efforts in defeat against Gennady Golovkin on Saturday, the 30-year-old is still waiting to learn if he will require surgery on a broken eyesocke
But plans are already in motion for the fighter to return against marquee opposition, with a three-man shortlist of Alvarez, Amir Khan and four-weight world champion Miguel Cotto.
Hearn told Sportsmail: ‘There is already interest from HBO in a fight between Canelo Alvarez and Kell next May. That’s a fight Kell would absolutely love and has said so to me himself.
‘Common sense would also suggest that the fight Britain wants to see with Amir Khan should also be possible.
‘Then there’s Miguel Cotto, which would be a huge fight. They are the three main ones we are looking at for his comeback. We want to go straight into a big one.’
Having fought Golovkin for the Kazakh’s middleweight world titles, Brook has retained his IBF welterweight belt.
