Hearn: Kell Brook Withdraws From Devon Alexander Clash

Matchroom Sport can today confirm that Kell Brook will be unable to fight Devon Alexander on May 18 due to an injury to his right foot.

Promoter Eddie Hearn said:

“Kell has recently developed pain in his right foot. Following specialist review and investigations over the last ten days he has been diagnosed with a stress fracture of his right fourth metatarsal and a further injury of his right navicular, both of which require on-going treatment including withdrawal from full training.

“As a result of these injuries and the time required to recover he has been advised that he will not be medically fit to fight on May 18.

“Obviously this is a huge blow and Kell is devastated but we have had to make the right decision for Kell Brook the fighter. We will speak with Golden Boy and hope to reschedule the bout in the near future.”
