Brook: You’re next Errol Spence Jr.

IBF welterweight champion, Kell Brook, today announced that his next fight will be against the IBF mandatory challenger, Errol Spence Jr.

A purse bid for the fight was scheduled for February 7th, however, the bid was postponed at the last minute.

According to Brook’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, the postponement had been requested by both parties as they were close to finalising an agreement.

However, until today, it had been unclear whether Brook would stay at 147 lbs or make the move to 154 lbs.

In the past few months, Brook’s team have repeatedly stated that making 147lbs is becoming a struggle for the IBF champion. Both Eddie Hearn and Dominic Ingle, Brook’s trainer, have gone on record, claiming they want Brook to vacate his title and move to 154 lbs. Brook, however, appears to have different ideas.

Exact details of the deal are unknown at this time, but Hearn has previously stated that he wants Brook to fight in May/June, with his hometown of Sheffield likely to host the contest.
