Kell Brook would welcome a rematch with Gennady Golovkin after losing his unbeaten record to 'GGG', but says a second fight should be held at super-welterweight.
'The Special One' has stepped back down to welterweight to accept the challenge posed by dangerous mandatory opponent Errol Spence Jr at Bramall Lane on May 27, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

But Brook still wants to avenge his fifth-round stoppage defeat to Golovkin, which saw the Sheffield man eager to fight on, despite a broken eye socket that forced trainer Dominic Ingle to throw in the towel.
Asked about a Golovkin rematch, Brook exclusively told Sky Sports: "Absolutely I would. I would love to get back in there with him.
I would love one day to get back in there with GGG and have another tear up with him.
"I would probably like to fight the weight above welterweight and maybe two fights, and then fight him. Instead of the big step up in class and higher weight division.
"But I would love one day to get back in there with 'GGG' and have another tear up with him."
Middleweight king Golovkin this month confirmed his super-fight with Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez on September 16, while Brook is relieved to have shed the extra pounds after climbing back down towards the 147lb limit.
"It's been very, very tough because I moved to middleweight and then I had time off, so my weight went even higher.
"It's been gradual but we have got there. Every day is tough and we take one day at a time, but I'm sat here now and I'm on target. I'm hitting my targets, so I'm happy."
