Kell Brook is excited about the possibility of a fight against Canelo when he returns from injury at super welterweight.
The British boxer still remains a champion at welterweight despite his loss to Golovkin, but will now box in the 154lbs class.
Brook, who is recovering from a broken eye socket sustained in the clash with the Kazakh, told Sky Sports News HQ: “I think 154lbs would be more my weight class.
“I need to get back training and see if I could make 147lbs healthily – that’s also a possibility because I’m a world champion at 147lbs.
“I’d love that fight with Canelo. I just want to be in those big fights. I had a taste with the Golovkin fight and the attention around it is exciting for a fighter to be in.
“I’ve got an operation this Friday. I went down to see the surgeons and they wanted to plan it right and look into everything.
“They’re looking to put a titanium plate in the eye but they’re looking at other materials. They’re not rushing it but it looks like this Friday. I’m more scared of getting put to sleep than I was of getting in with Golovkin!
“They said it’d be a good few months before I can start sparring again. It’s a break so you’re looking at six to eight weeks before sparring. I only start sparring when I’m four weeks away from a fight anyway.
“I’m going to make sure I listen to them, take things slowly and don’t go faster than I should.”
