Promoter Tom Loeffler says that world middleweight champion Tom Loeffler will return to fight in the United Kingdom at some point in the future.

Promoter Tom Loeffler has acknowledged that both he and world middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin were delighted with the reception he received at the O2 Arena on Saturday night.

Golovkin recorded a fifth-round stoppage win over Kell Brook in front of a sold-out crowd in London, and Loeffler has suggested that it will not be long before the hard-hitting Kazakh graces a British ring once again.

Loeffler told Sky Sports News: "When the fans were standing on their chairs, singing and cheering on, it was just an incredible atmosphere in the arena.

"I think the world saw what a great energy The O2 has and when both were walking into the ring, there was such adrenaline - it was great.

"He has so many amateur fights around the world, but in his professional career, this was his first in the UK market and we couldn't have asked for a better reception."

Golovkin is likely to face Daniel Jacobs in the United States before returning to England in 2017 to face either Billy Joe Saunders or Chris Eubank Jr.
