Kell Brook, 36, in talks for boxing return and has already been offered winner of Chris Eubank Jr vs Conor Benn fight | The Sun

KELL BROOK has been approached to make a boxing return – and could fight the winner between Chris Eubank Jr and Conor Benn.

Brook announced his retirement shortly after beating long-time rival Amir Khan in six rounds in February.

But the former welterweight champion has started training again, with coach Dominic Ingle opening up on the prospect of a comeback.

Ingle told Boxing King Media: “He says he’s got the fire in his belly for another fight. He’s had certain promoters onto him wanting to make fights.

“He asked me what I thought and I said, ‘Kell, listen, you’ve got plenty of money, you made a fortune. You’ve probably never achieved what you should’ve done, but you’ve made a fortune.’

“I said, ‘If you’ve got the fire in your belly that you still wanna hurt people and you still wanna fight, do it.’

“I said, ‘You certainly don’t wanna be doing it for the money, you don’t need the money, but if a fight gets your adrenaline flowing, really gets you up for it, take that fight.’

“I think he’s been offered three or four opponents.

“I said, ‘Pick the one who gets your adrenaline flowing. Be training, see how you go. But I certainly don’t need you to fight again, and you certainly don’t need to fight again. So make sure it’s for the right reason – because you want to fight.’

“We’ll see what Kell [decides]. He’s been training for the last couple of weeks.”

Brook, 36, was in talks to fight Benn, 26, but priced himself out after demanding £10MILLION.

And he also could not agree a catchweight limit with Eubank Jr, 33, who instead faces Benn at 157lb this Saturday.

Brook could return to challenge the winner while former sparring partner Liam Smith, 34, has also been touted.

Ingle said: “I think somebody mentioned Liam Smith.

“Or maybe the winner of Conor Benn vs Chris Eubank Jr. I don’t know the exact details, it’s just been mentioned.

“He’s enjoying training, but he knows that if he’s gonna be in another fight, then he’s got to step on the gas and get moving again.

“We’ll maybe know in the next two weeks.”
