Kell Brook to defend IBF welterweight title in March in first fight since Tenerife stabbing

Via

Kell Brook will defend his IBF welterweight title on March 28 at Sheffield”s Motorpoint Arena in his first fight since being stabbed.

Brook returns to ring in his home city after recovering from being stabbed in the left legwith a machete while on holiday in Tenerife in September.

The unbeaten Brookwon the IBF belt from Shawn Porter in Los Angeles in August and his opponent for the first defence of his crowd will be announced at a press conference in Sheffield on Thursday.

At the back end of last year, Brook”s promoter Eddie Hearn urged Amir Khan to take on the IBF champin a mega-money showdown at Wembley – rather than keep pursuing Floyd Mayweather.

“He’s hanging around, hoping for a Mayweather fight and the main reason is because if he loses to Floyd Mayweather, he can come again,” Hearn said.

“But if he loses to Kell Brook, he’ll be in all sorts of problems. It would be horrific for him.”
