Hearn: Porter-Brook Contracts Received By Golden Boy

By Shaun Brown

Kell Brook’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, called Boxing Scene earlier tonight to respond to comments from IBF Welterweight champion Shawn Porter’s father and trainer who told ‘Scene’s Ryan Burton today “We have not received a signed contract” regarding his fighter’s proposed mandatory defence against Brook, the organisation’s number one contender for the title.

Porter also said “I believe he is stalling. I don’t believe he wants this fight”.

Hearn gave his reaction exclusively to ‘Scene.

“I was shocked to hear Porter’s comments and as such immediately called Arnold Joseph, Golden Boy’s lawyer, who confirmed to me that all contract and agreements were fully executed and forwarded to the IBF. We are more than happy with the terms, which include random drug testing which I feel is very important in the sport today. The original date of Aug 9 appears to have fallen through so we are awaiting now the final confirmation of the fight date which must happen prior to Sep 10 within the agreement. I’ve seen the speculation regarding another potential bout for Shawn Porter. I’m sure he and his team are aware that this would result in him being immediately stripped of the IBF title. I cannot tell you how ready Kell Brook is for this fight. He’s deep in camp and ready to do a job on Shawn Porter.”
