Gennady Golovkin eyes Billy Joe Saunders after overcoming Kell Brook

Gennady Golovkin sets his sights on WBO champion Billy Joe Saunders, as he attempts to "hold all the belts in the middleweight division".

Middleweight king Gennady Golovkin has targeted a bout with Billy Joe Saunders on British soil after stopping Kell Brook at London's O2 Arena.

The 34-year-old successfully defended his belts on Saturday evening when holding off a brave challenge from his opponent, knocking him down in the fifth round to make it 33 knockouts from 36 fights.

Golovkin knows exactly who he wants to face next, with WBO middleweight champion Saunders now in his sights as he looks to add to his WBA, WBC and IBF titles to truly dominate the division.

"First of all Billy Joe Saunders, and then Canelo Alvarez," he told reporters. "My goal is to hold all the belts in the middleweight division. I would like Billy Joe Saunders first of all because he has the WBO belt.

"I would absolutely come back to the UK to fight. Absolutely I love the UK, I'm a big fan of London."

Brook was left with a broken eye socket following the defeat, which ended his proud unbeaten record inside the ring.
