JESSIE VARGAS has engaged in a war of words with fellow welterweight world champion Kell Brook as frustrations grow over continuing negotiations.

The pair have been mooted to face each other later this year for some time now, though an official announcement has not yet been made.

Brook’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, claimed the delay in finalising a deal was mainly down to securing a date at Bramall Lane in Sheffield, though Vargas has claimed on social media that the proposed date has now changed three times.
