When Kell Brook took the GGG fight his courage became known to all. He has shown more courage & Instead of pursuing lucrative bouts at 154 & potentially waiting until mid 2017, Brook has informed his promoter Eddie Hearn to make the bout with Errol Spence Jr.
Brook will be defending his IBF Welterweight title. Nutritionists have informed Brook that he can make that weight healthy again. I’m not so sure personally, after putting on all that muscle for the GGG fight, this could be a bad idea.
This would represent an identical drop in weight to what Roy Jones did when he moved up & then back down from Heavyweight back to Light Heavyweight.
This is HUGE NEWS for boxing fans. The talent of Spence Jr can’t be denied. Spence Jr has been vocal about wanting the Brook fight & he will finally get his chance. This fight won’t be to far away either. Our guess is look out for a late March bout in the UK.
