EDDIE HEARN has already been in contact to convince Kell Brook into fighting Conor Benn and not Chris Eubank Jr.
Hearn helped guide Brook’s world title-winning career but the pair have not worked together since 2020.

The promoter failed to deliver the much-anticipated grudge match with Amir Khan, which was instead arranged by Ben Shalom of Boxxer.
Brook, 35, went on to dominate Khan, also 35, in six rounds, and was called out by ringside guests Eubank Jr and Benn.
Hearn said on the DAZN Boxing Show: “The aim for Conor Benn is to become a welterweight world champion.
“As I said to Kell Brook last night, I think Conor Benn is the best welterweight in Britain.
“Now, off the back of that performance from Kell Brook, many will feel that he is.
“Kell Brook against Conor Benn is a brilliant fight, brilliant fight.
“One guy at the back end of his career, one guy a young rising star. Is it too early? Is it too late?
“I said to Kell last night, ‘Why would you even think about fighting Chris Eubank Jr, a middleweight, when you can fight a huge welterweight fight against Conor Benn?’”
Eubank Jr, 32, still wants to settle the score with Brook after the Sheffield man in 2016 leapfrogged him to fight Gennady Golovkin, 39.
But the size difference is already causing a problem between the two, squabbling over a potential catchweight.
For Benn, 25, he is an on the rise star, knocking over experienced but admittedly declining campaigners.
The son of British boxing legend Nigel had called to fight the winner between Khan and Brook, before the Manchester showdown.
And he watched on as Khan bravely battled through half of the fight before finally being stopped.
Hearn – who had claimed he was not going to watch – did sit down and tune in – but was left questioning ‘what if’.
He said: “Watching the fight I had a couple of thoughts.
Number one is; this would’ve been such an unbelievable fight in their primes, because it was still exciting because of the rivalry.
“We have to give massive props to Amir Khan because he was absolutely shot to pieces going into that fight.
“He was wobbled from a jab in the first round, his legs were all over the place from the first bell, but he wouldn’t give up.
“Fair play to him, he never stopped trying. And he knew in his heart of hearts, actually he would’ve known in training camp that he was shot to pieces.
“But he never stopped trying to win.”
