IBF: Porter-Malignaggi Winner Must Face Kell Brook
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

The IBF have ruled that Shawn Porter may risk his IBF welterweight title against Paul Malignaggi on the condition that the winner must make his next defence against mandatory challenger Kell Brook this summer. Both men must confirm in writing that whomever emerges as champion has the obligation to face Brook next.

Porter-Malignaggi must take place by April 19, with the winner required to face Brook 90 days thereafter. If Porter-Malignaggi fails to materialise by April 19, Porter’s next defence must be against the unbeaten Sheffield star. Brook’s promoter Eddie Hearn explained the findings and expressed his delight for the 27 year old, who faces Alvaro Robles in a ten-round clash at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Saturday, live on Sky Sports.

“The IBF wrote to me last week to confirm that IBF champion Shawn Porter had asked for an exemption to fight Paul Malignaggi on April 19, 12 days outside of the restricted period,” said Hearn. “We asked that if the exemption be granted then it should be accompanied by certain requirements, the most important of those being that both fighters in the proposed April 19 bout must agree in writing to face Kell within 90 days of the bout or by July 19.

“We received confirmation from the IBF today that the exemption would only be granted under a number of conditions including the above. It is great news for Kell after a frustrating period, and he just has to take care of business on Saturday night then I am sure Britain will have another World champion by July 19.”

Brook has taken the path of least resistance. Ducking Devon, and now will likely fight the guy who beat Devon. I hope Porter destroys Brook.

[QUOTE=johnm is...]Yeah, damn those guys for wanting to get paid well......at their job. And I'm still not so sure what makes Brook so much more deserving than Paulie.[/QUOTE] brook is on the rise and deserves a shot, porter is a fresh name himself and beat alexander with ease paulie is not ...

This is a damn good fight. Something to look forward to in this grossly terrible 2014.

[QUOTE=WilkinsOlajuwon]Man if only Paulie had some power...he would be a major threat.[/QUOTE] Yeah. I still see Paulie outboxing Porter though. Porter's got energy to spare, but Paulie has a definite skill advantage here.

looks like Brook will finally get his title shot neither Porter or Paulie is a big enough star to bypass him poor Brook's been a mando for 1 of the sanctioning bodies forever :lol1: don't think he'd beat either of these guys, but whatever looks like IBF is the odd belt out in the big WW star mix
