KELL BROOK accepted the same deal Chris Eubank Jr was offered to fight Gennady Golovkin on September 10, Eddie Hearn has revealed.

In a stunning announcement earlier today, it was revealed IBF welterweight champion Brook will jump to 160lbs to take on the fearsome Kazakh, who owns the WBC, WBA and IBF world titles.

Hearn was deep in negotiations for Eubank to get a fight with ‘GGG’, but has revealed Chris and his father missed their chance and Brook wasted no time when presented with the offer.
