Kell Brook admits he will be envious of Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton when he watches from ringside as the two collide tomorrow night.

The pair take part in a unification battle which will see one of the men walk away with both IBF and WBA belts.

Brook is training for a comparatively modest IBF defence against Canadian Kevin Bizier on March 26 at Sheffield Arena. But he will be pushing Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn to get him somebody more exciting next time round.

“I am envious of those two with their unification fight and I will be kicking Eddie up the backside to make sure he puts the right sterling down to make sure we attract the right opponent” said Brook.

“My number one choice at this stage would be a unification with Danny Garcia (WBC holder.) He has KO’d Amir Khan and like me is young and ready to fight. I’d love to add his belt to my collection. That fight would get me and the fans excited.”

Brook, who is 30 in May, has previously tipped Belfast’s Frampton to win in Manchester, but he says “Both have power and if someone gets caught anything can happen. It should be an exciting event especially after all the mind-games that have been played in the run-up.”

Brook, who has 35 straight wins to his credit, has taken his hat off to Liverpool sparring partner Joe Selkirk, after recent training sessions.

He tweeted: “Just to let you know you’re in my top five hardest spars I’ve had, great talent lad.”
