Brook: I Was Ready To Take That Title, I'm in Shock

As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, Devon Alexander has been forced to postpone his IBF welterweight title clash with British hope Kell Brook due to a bicep injury. The pair were scheduled to clash in Detroit on the 23rd of February but the American champion has pulled out, according to Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer. The unbeaten Brook, who recorded an impressive third-round stoppage of Hector Saldivia in October's final eliminator, had been set for a first tilt at a world title.

Brook told Sky Sports News Radio: "I'm in complete shock. This was a massive moment for me but I'll be on the phone to Eddie as soon as I can and find out exactly what's gone on. I'm in tip top shape, I've had a fantastic training camp and I was ready to go and try and take that title. When I walked into the gym at nine years old, it's all I ever wanted, to become a world champion. I'm in shock. I just don't know what to say."
