Brook Says Porter Fight Coming at The Right Time

By Edward Chaykovsky

Undefeated British contender Kell Brook (32-0, 22KOs) says his upcoming title clash with IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter (24-0-1, 15KOs) is taking place at the right time. The fight is taking place on August 16th at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Brook has had a number of postponements. Three scheduled fights with then champion Devon Alexander fell through due to injuries. Last December Porter unseated Alexander to capture the IBF crown.

“I am so ready for this moment,” Brook told the Toe 2 Toe Podcast. “I am fitter than ever and ready to go. I have been in training for a long time so it’s perfect for me and now I’m going to continue training hard and picking the sparring up before winding down for that occasion. I can’t wait to go in there and get the belt.”

Brook comes off as the type of guys who will pull out last minute. Kinda like the UK HW's. He's going to lose bad either way.
