Kell Brook is confident promoter Eddie Hearn will deliver a big-name rival for a fight that will fill Bramall Lane this Summer.
Sheffield’s IBF champion also opened the door to a future encounter with super-lightweight Terence Crawford, who is gaining a fearsome reputation in the US.
“I have made it loud and clear that my next fight has to be huge,” said the welterweight kingpin.
“I’ve put the pressure on Eddie; he knows he has got to come up with a big fight for me now or else I will be very upset.
“Through no fault of my own, with the mandatories coming round, the last three opponents haven’t been the elite opponents we wanted.
“We have got a bit of breathing space to pick a big name.
“He does want me to fight the big fights; it is not like he is protecting me. He wants to see me being tested.
“I am confident we will get something sorted and I will be in the ring with a big name this summer.
“I am pestering, poking and pushing for the big fight. And, mark my words, I will get it.”
Brook’s first choice would probably be WBC champion Danny Garcia (32+0).
“The green belt is the one for me. It’s the Muhammad Ali belt, the Joe Louis belt,” he said.
Brook is an admirer of 28-year-old Terence Crawford (28+0).
“He is making a big noise,” he said. “He beat one of our fighters, Ricky Burns, and has been looking sensational ever since. There is talk of him coming up to welterweight.”
