I feel Lara was my toughest fight . Charlo doesn’t even have to come looking for me. That’s the fight I want. “I want Kell Brook ,” Hurd said. “It doesn’t matter. If the business is right with Charlo, then we’ll fight him next.”

Brook will keep a close eye on the fight and he does have interest in facing Hurd - should he win. Hurd is the size of a super middleweight and generates amazement with his ability to make 154. He has an exciting come forward style with little regard for defense. "I've not seen too much about him.

Jarrett Hurd has called for Kell Brook to back up his words and fight him.

The WBA 'Super' and IBF super-welterweight champion wants to fight Brook before the end of the year in America, with all his belts on the line.

"I was watching a few interviews on YouTube with Kell Brook saying a few things like 'the kid Hurd's not that good', and he'd fight me if there was a belt on the line," Hurd exclusively told Sky Sports.

"Not only does he say he would fight me if there was one belt on the line because I am no good, well I've got three belts. If he wants to show he is up for the challenge, I've got the opportunity for him."

It was a tough fight for Hurd , but pulled it out by coming on strong in the last four rounds. Lara completely wilted under the pressure from the 27-year-old Hurd in the 12th and was lucky not to have been knocked out in the fight . “I was watching a few interviews on YouTube with Kell Brook saying a

Once I come back with a win, and my confidence is up there again, I’ll be looking at those names.” It might be a tad foolish for Brook to fight at 154 given his Hurd took punishment from Austin Trout in the first 6 rounds, and came on strong to batter him until he was pulled out of the fight in the 10th.

Hurd was recently crowned a unified champion at 154lbs, with a points win over long-standing WBA holder Erislandy Lara.

It was followed by a social media exchange with WBC holder Jermell Charlo, but the unbeaten 'Swift' says a win over Brook will help him reach the ultimate goal of becoming the undisputed super-welterweight champion.

"I know I am the best," Hurd added. "At the end of the day I don't want to slag off any fighters, I just want to keep improving while I feel this way and give people a reason why they view me as the No 1 world champion.

"Fighting Kell Brook is going to help put me there.

"Of course, I want all the belts. We don't want pushovers though, or no easy fights, just tough fights to set up the unification with Jermell Charlo. That's why we want Kell Brook.

Khan: I'll leave 'great legacy'

  Khan: I'll leave 'great legacy' Amir Khan wants to leave a "great legacy" as he considers the options for the remaining fights of his career.  The 31-year-old former world champion returned to the ring with a swift knockout of Phil Lo Greco in April, his first fight in almost two years, and recognises he only has a limited time to fulfil his ambitions in the sport.Khan has already called for a fight against Adrien Broner, while a huge domestic clash with Kell Brook could finally happen later this year, and wants to prove that he is still one of the world's top fighters.

So who does Kell Brook come back against? We look at his potential first fight opponents. The two factors that make this unlikely for me are Eggington is a puncher. Is his vicious style what you The athletic Hurd has a great pace which he keeps throughout the fight but his footwork and inconsistent

Jarrett Hurd ’s trainer to Lara: Go get a belt if you want a rematch; Kell Brook is a better fight . Kell Brook is coming off back-to-back defeats and serious injury, but the former IBF welterweight titleholder is looking to rebuild at 154 pounds.

"Right now he's not a natural 147-pounder, he's a little smaller but he is a decent fighter. The tools that he has are not very specific and he does nothing extraordinary but does nothing bad either.

"I've got my size advantage and just me, who I am... the No1 unified champion. Anything I can do in the ring I capitalise on, I can walk Kell down, it doesn't matter, nothing he can do can neutralise anything I've got."

Trainer Ernesto Rodriguez made it clear he is full of respect for Brook, who beat Sergey Rabchenko with a brutal second-round stoppage in his first fight at super-welterweight.

Brook has said he will become a two-weight world champion and the man behind 'Swift' wants to see him try and prove it.

"No disrespect to Brook, because he's a great fighter, a good champion and it's a great opportunity for the pair to fight," said Rodriguez. "There'll be three belts on the line, so what more can you ask for?

"If he wants to become a second-weight world champion, this is his opportunity to man up. Now it's time to put up, shut up or check out."
