Gennady Golovkin & Kell Brook Weigh-In

KELL BROOK’S IBF welterweight title fight against elite American prospect Errol Spence could land on May 27 or June 3 in Sheffield.

Brook moved up to middleweight to fight Kazakh terror Gennady Golovkin last September. Kell has now had to recover from a fractured eye socket and shed weight to return to 147lbs and his world title. Spence has impressed as he’s risen through the ranks over the course his early professional career and stands to become a big star in the US.

Brook’s promoter Eddie Hearn will stage the fight in his Sheffield home town. “We’ve put a request in to the council for May 27 or June 3 at Bramall Lane [a football stadium] for Brook-Spence. Just waiting for the capacity to be approved,” Hearn said.
