Kell Brook Vows: I Will End The Hatton Fighting Name!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Undefeated WBA Inter-Continental welterweight champion Kell Brook (26-0, 18KOs) has vowed to end the Hatton legacy on March 17th at Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield. Brook faces Matthew Hatton (42-5-2, 16KOs) with the IBF International title also at stake. As BoxingScene.com reported last week, the fight was bridged with a drunken prank phone call from Hatton, who reached out to Brook around Christmas time.

Brook said: "I missed Matt's call but his message said 'come and fight me'. I knew he was drunk and deleted it. His call came when he was full of Christmas spirit and there's no problem between us. There's a lot of respect but when I'm wearing my gloves Matt will not be able to cope with my power or speed. Ricky was an unbelievable fighter. They can carry on being promoters but their fighting name will be finished," Brook told The Sun.

the Hatton name ended when Ricky piled face first into the turnbuckle from being knocked silly from a Mayweather punch he never saw coming. Matthew Hatton is a second tier fighter by British standards. Man up and fight a world…

Brook isn't going anywhere, he just isn't talented enough and is an average fighter in every way.
