He refuses to believe that Roberto Duran ever lost to Tommy Hearns and says that Jeff Fenech would destroy Chuck Norris, Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali on the same night.

Junior middleweight Kell Brook 38-2 (26) has returned to trainer Dominic Ingle and is eying of a fight before the end of the year.

The 33-year-old hasn’t fought since outpointing Australian Michael Zerafa last December.

It was Brook’s second straight victory since dropping back-to-back fights to Errol Spence and Gennady Golovkin, both by knockout.

“I’m back in training and getting fitter, getting lighting and looking to fight end of November or December,” Brook told ESPN.

“I’ve got my desire back and everyone in the gym is pushing each other. We’ve got [WBO world super middleweight champion] Billy Joe Saunders, Kid Galahad, Liam Williams, John Joe Joyce and Yves Ngabu all pushing each other.

“I’m looking for big names and I feel I’ve got a lot more to give. I believe at this stage it’s going to be at super welterweight.”

Brook’s return to the ring could take place on the undercard of the unified heavyweight world title rematch between Andy Ruiz Jr and Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia on December 7.

English rival Amir Khan, who is coming off a fourth-round stoppage of Australian Billy Dib in Saudi Arabia in July, would seem a natural fit, however Khan has repeatedly said for the fight to happen it must be at welterweight.

Brook is ranked number three by the WBA at 154-pounds with American Julian Williams holding their championship belt along with the IBF title. Brook is also ranked WBO number five and WBC number seven.
