Kell Brook in Line For a Couple Big Fights in America, Says Hearn

According to Eddie Hearn, promoter for Kell Brook (38-2, 26 KOs), his boxer is in line for several big fights in the United States.

Brook captured his IBF welterweight title in 2014, with a twelve round decision win over Shawn Porter in Los Angeles.

He lost that title in 2017, after getting stopped by Errol Spence, who traveled to Sheffield to take the fight.


Brook was very close to reaching an agreement for a long pursued grudge fight with domestic rival Amir Khan.

But Khan decided to take a pass, and instead reached an agreement to face WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford on April 20th at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

At the moment it's not clear as to which weight division Brook plans to occupy.

He's the mandatory challenger to the WBA title held by Jarrett Hurd at junior middleweight, says Hearn.

Although, Hearn believes Brook is now capable of safely making the welterweight limit of 147.

Former champions Jessie Vargas (at 147) and Liam Smith (at 154) have emerged as potential opponents for Brook in the very near future.

"There's a couple of big fights in the States that are available to him," said Hearn to Sky Sports.

"Obviously he's going to be keeping an eye out for the Khan fight as well, but that's something he wants to park over now to the side, and move on. The Liam Smith fight is another fight he will be looking at as well, so yeah he's another guy that needs to pull the trigger in the next couple of weeks to decide his next step."

"Yes, he's mandatory to Jarrett Hurd. Really the big decision is the weight. Do you stay at 147, do you go 154? His discipline is so much better now, so there's a part of me that thinks that 147 is achievable, but we'll talk shortly."

Kell Brook the legendary bum slayer will be back fighting a nobody once again. Shít even Horn has a better record than Kell Brook and he can pack a large national stadium out regularly. Horn would maul the shít out…
