Brook to face Alexander in January for IBF title
KELL BROOK will fulfil a childhood dream when he faces Devon Alexander for the IBF world title on January 19.
Unbeaten welterweight Brook, 26, gradually positioned himself as mandatory challenger for the belt with a series of solid wins over the last 18 months.
And promoter Eddie Hearn has sealed the deal for his fighter to take on American Alexander in boxing mecca Las Vegas.
Brook said: ďWeíre finally there. This is what Iíve dreamed of since I was nine ó fighting for the world title.
ďIím so passionate and hungry for this world title. Nothingís going to stop me. I canít wait to get in that ring, in America, and get that world title.
ďFighting for the belt in America is going to make it a lot more special. I could have had it my own way, at home in Sheffield for example, but to be honest I donít think he would have come over here.
ďSo Iím going to go over there, to his country, and capture a world title.
ďImagine that, when Iím stood in that ring, being crowned world champion after beating him in his own back yard after Iíve dreamed of it for all these years!Ē
Brook, who has defeated Matthew Hatton, Carson Jones and Hector Saldivia since the turn of the year, added: ďI donít mind it being in America.
ďIíve agreed to fight him in his own country and whether it was Vegas or New York, itís all going to be nice fun and games for me when I get in there and do what Iím going to do ó take him out.Ē
