Ring Magazine #3 Ranked Welterweight Kell Brook will return to the ring on March 15th, his promoter Matchroom Boxing announced tonight. Kell Brook who was scheduled to figh twice last year for the IBF Welterweight Championship against Devon Alexander, had to cancel due to injury but has since won two fights, including against hard-hiting Viacheslav Senchenko last fall.
The IBF had ordered Kell Brook fight the winner of the recent Devon Alexander-Shawn Porter fight. While no opponent has been set, Kell Brook has elected to stay busy and continue building his resume until his IBF fight happens.
It would’ve been great to see Brook showcased on the undercard of the yet-to-be announced Mayweather-Khan fight on May 3rd. Having a second British boxer highlighted would’ve made for an exciting British Invasion theme, especially if Brook were fighting for the title against the new, young, champion, Shawn Porter.
