Hearn: Diego Chaves is Frontrunner To Face Kell Brook

Kell Brook will return to the ring in the coming months, with the IBF welterweight champion expected to defend his belt in October.

Diego Chaves is the ‘frontrunner’ for the fight and has already proved himself at top level, troubling Keith Thurman in a late stoppage loss, and also battled to a draw with Timothy Bradley in his last bout.

“We are looking at the end of October," said Hearn. We’re very close now to finalising Kell Brook’s next opponent for that date. Not a lot of people want to fight Kell Brook. People in boxing know how good Kell Brook is."

"Keith Thurman is in the same boat as well. That fight between Brook and Thurman one day will be a huge fight, but they are not queuing up to fight Keith Thurman and they are not queuing up to fight Kell Brook. They are certainly not queuing up to travel from America to England to fight Kell Brook."

"Chaves, you’ve only got to look at his resume, he gave Keith Thurman fits in that fight and he stopped him late. He was winning the (Brandon) Rios fight before he got disqualified and drew with Tim Bradley in his last fight. He’s a very dangerous fight."

"I think in terms of other fighters that big-name welterweights are fighting, Diego Chaves is right up there as a real tough opponent. He’s probably the frontrunner right now for the end of October."

[QUOTE=Box-Office;15948362]The whole thing about eliminator especially the fact it's against Kevin Bizier who has 2 losses both to No No Dan. So, he'll most probably smash through him, get a win under his belt and be in a mandatory position.…
