Brook, 31, told Sky Sports: “As you’ve seen in my last two fights, I want to fight the best.

“I want to be in a huge fight like the last two.

“It depends if [Cotto] fancies the job. We know he’s a warrior but it depends what’s in his sights and how he wants to end his career.

“If I was him I’d want to fight someone like me because our styles would gel and it would be a fantastic fight for the fans.

“That is the way I’d go and that’s the fight I’d want. But of course, I don’t speak on behalf of Miguel Cotto.

“I am in that elite category, the highest in boxing. I want to be in a 12-round fight, in a sell-out arena, with me topping the bill.”

Brook is slowly getting back to boxing after his two horrific crocks by doing some light training in the gym.

He said: “I have been back in the gym, but only for a little spell because I just wasn’t ready.

“To have those two, tough losses on the bounce, I am not in a rush to get back to the gym, to be honest.

“I have put the working in over the years and have had those two losses and eye injuries so I want to make sure I am healed properly and have got the eye of the tiger again.

“I need to be firing on all cylinders, not half-hearted. I want to make sure I am ready to go back.”
