Kell Brook Will Fight in the Fall, Opponent Doesn’t Matter

IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook will fight in September whether his opponent is Brandon Rios or another boxer.

Brook and his matchmaker/manager Eddie Hearn, are still trying to work out the fight with Top Rank who manages Rios. Hearn spoke with Boxingnewsonline stating: “We’re in discussion with Top Rank. It’s not done yet. If that is done, then taht will be the headline bout at the O2 on September 12th. If not Kell might fight in October instead but he’s training now with that date in mind.”

Brook has the belt so there is no reason why Bob Arum and Top Rank wouldn’t want to get Rios in the ring with the champ.

More details are pending.
