Hearn: Alexander-Brook Could Head To Garcia-Judah Bill

By Luke Furman

Promoter Eddie Hearn is working with Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer to reschedule the welterweight fight between IBF champion Devon Alexander and mandatory challenger Kell Brook. The two promoters spoke last night and Hearn says Golden Boy is potentially going to place the fight on the Danny Garcia-Zab Judah undercard, which takes place on April 27th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

"I spoke to Richard Schaefer last night. I believe they are trying to pair it with Garcia and Judah in New York, potentially in April. Kell is ready," Hearn told iFilmLondon.

In an earlier article on BoxingScene.com , Schaefer rejected the rumors of ongoing negotiations to make a fight between Alexander and WBC champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. The rumors began on Tuesday when Mayweather made a tweet which named Alexander as the "frontrunner" to fight him on May 4th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Alexander suffered a right bicep injury last week and withdrew from the fight with Brook on Monday. It was scheduled to take place on February 23rd in Detroit, and prior to that it was set to move forward on January 19th in Los Angeles, but Brook withdrew with a hurt ankle.

Hearn never believed Mayweather's tweet, calling it "a setup to make [Robert] Guerrero sign quicker." The IBF also confirmed to Hearn that if Alexander accepted another fight contract, the belt would become "vacant" and Brook would then fight the highest available contender for the title.

Sick card. Only thing that could make it any better was if Matthysse was fighting in the place of Judah.
