Hearn: Brook's Ankle Hurt, I Requested 3-4 Week Bump

Kell Brook's world title fight against IBF champion Devon Alexander will have to be rescheduled after the Briton picked up an ankle injury. The original January 19 date is now likely to come too soon for the unbeaten welterweight from Sheffield, with promoter Eddie Hearn in talks with his counterparts Golden Boy Promotions for a switch.

"Kell sustained an ankle injury that has hampered his training and running work over the last few days," said Hearn.

"I'm concerned mainly for the travelling UK fans and it's in no-one's interest for the fight to fall through closer to the time, so last night I requested a three to four week delay to the original date of January 19. This will eradicate the risk and ensure Kell will be 100% for the biggest fight of his life."

The fight was scheduled to headline a Showtime televised tripleheader at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.

[QUOTE=badnewsbrown]i generally don't pass on such rumours, but there were indications leading upto this. For a such a big fight that's taking place from a month from now and have no build-up or even an announcement means something ain't right.[/QUOTE] Well, they didn't get it fully arranged u...
