Alexander-Brook faces potential date change

Ankle problem hits Bristish star’s first world title shot

Kell Brook’s first world title fight against Devon Alexander may need to be pushed back from the proposed January 19 date after the Sheffield star picked up an ankle injury in training. Brook’s promoter Eddie Hearn is working closely with Alexander’s Golden Boy Promotions team to delay the fight by a matter of weeks. “Kell sustained an ankle injury that has hampered his training and running work over the last few days,” said Hearn. “I’m concerned mainly for the travelling UK fans and it’s in no-one’s interest for the fight to fall through closer to the time, so last night I requested a three to four week delay to the original date of January 19. This will eradicate the risk and ensure Kell will be 100 per cent for the biggest fight of his life.” Matchroom Sport and Golden Boy Promotions will inform fight fans of the latest news as soon as possible.
