After a convincing performance last night against Jessie Vargas, Manny Pacquiao picked up a unanimous points victory to win the WBO Welterweight Title. Quick to pounce on the opportunity, Kell Brook fired a tweet at him asking for a fight at 147lbs in 2017. Not forgetting Brooks last fight against GGG suffering a 5th round stoppage when Brooks corner chucked in the towel, he also voiced his struggle of making weight at 147lbs and felt much more comfortable at 160, but would probably like to settle down at 154lbs with a potential super fight against WBO Light Middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez. The fact Brook has now reached out to Pacquiao, he obviously see’s areas of weekness and feels the payday would be quite easy. Throwing all these names in the mix, before Brook goes any further in the Welterweight division, he has to face his mandatory challenger Errol Spence Jr for him to not be stripped of his belt. It’s clear Errol spence is a high risk low reward fight at the moment, he’s a huge prospect but the money for a bout against Spence would be considerably lower than a unification fight against Pacquiao. To make this tornado division even more complicated, Amir Khan is also looking to make his return in 2017 too. Some big fights potentially on the horizon
