By Scott Gilfoid: #1 IBF contender Kell Brook (32-0, 22 KO’s) will likely need to make one of his rare trips outside of the UK to fight on foreign soil if he wants to get a chance at facing the winner of this Saturday’s match-up between IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter (23-0-1, 14 KO’s) and […]

By Michael Byrne: Shawn Porter has arranged a voluntary defence of his new IBF 147lb title with the biggest available name, Paulie Malignaggi, but the IBF have stated that the winner must fight mandatory challenger Kell Brook within 90 days. This is great news all round. Porter gets to fight another big name after springing […]

By Scott Gilfoid: Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport has finally found an opponent for #1 IBF, #7 WBO, #10 WBC welterweight contender Kell Brook (31-0, 21 KO’s) to fight on March 15th and instead of it being a well known 147 lb contender, Hearn has dug up someone named Alvaro Robles (17-2, 15 KO’s) […]
By Daven: Having watched welterweight contender Kell Brook fight many times on Sky Sports one can clearly see the guy is special. (no pun intended) However his fan base is mainly comprised of people from Sheffield and hardcore boxing fans within Britain. This basically means he is no position to call out Amir Khan; a […]
By Scott Gilfoid: Now that Amir Khan has been eliminated from contention for a nice payday fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 3rd, Matchroom Sport promoter Eddie Hearn, the promoter for unbeaten welterweight contender Kell Brook (31-0, 21 KO’s), has given Khan an offer of $8 million [5 million pounds] to face Brook. The […]

By jochef: I will start this article by saying I am a big fan of Kell Brook. He has all the tools to become a real force in the welterweight division, and his accurate punches and slick movement have at times left his opponents bewildered and completely out of ideas.

By Scott Gilfoid: Welterweight contender Kell Brook is giving fellow countryman Amir Khan (28-3, 19 KO’s) no chance at all in beating Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26 KO’s) if he’s the one that’s selected as Mayweather’s next opponent. Besides seeing the 27-year-old Khan as being unworthy to fight Mayweather due to his 2-2 record in […]
By Dan Henderson: Kell Brook is set to fight again in March against a yet to be named opponent. I should imagine that it would be a relatively easy fight to keep him ticking over for his IBF shot in June/July against Shawn Porter if the latter wins his voluntary defence, I’m not sure who […]
By Olly Campbell: With a lack of any domestic action throughout January here in the UK, I have grown quite reflective over what has been and what is to come as far as the best of British are concerned. Tyson Fury, Carl Froch and Ricky Burns have all been subjected to my scrutiny as of […]
