Kell Brook’s promoter Eddie Hearn has responded via Twitter to claims that allegedly injured IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander may fight WBC champ Floyd Mayweather in a unification fight instead of fighting mandatory challenger Brook:
Number 1 we have a signed contract to fight Devon Alexander for the IBF Title. Number 2 If they want Alexander v Mayweather to be a unification they would have to ask for an exemption from the IBF which is very unlikely given we already have signed contracts AND any exemption would have to take place within 90 days of last bout. We questioned the injury and now we await news from Golden Boy which, given the news that they are looking to enter the UK promoting market should be interesting. We will fight tooth and nail for Kelvin Brook and thanks for your support. More news soon..
