By Rick Reeno has confirmed that the IBF has given formal sanction approval for the welterweight voluntary eliminator for the #2 position, between #3 ranked Carson Jones and #5 ranked Kell Brook.  The bout is scheduled for July 7, 2012 at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield, England. This bout is being approved under the condition that the winner must fight #4 ranked Hector Saldivia in a final eliminator to set the mandatory challenger within 90 days or by October 7, 2012. 

The IBF has also ruled that neither fighter can take another fight until the elimination process is concluded.  If either fighter takes a fight, he will be removed from the eliminator and dropped out of the top 10. 

Randall Bailey captured the vacant IBF title this past Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, with a spectacular eleventh round knockout of Mike Jones.

Poor Kell

Kell Brook must be devastated, the Welterweight/ Junior Middleweight divisions are by the far the most exciting and money spinning right now and he just can't seem to break through. He thought the Matthew Hatton fight would do but now he has to go through Jones, Saldivia and Bailey before he wil...
