Kell Brook suffered a rib injury, Chaves fight off

IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook suffered a rib injury during a sparring session this week forcing him to postpone his title defense against against Diego Chaves. The fight was schedule for October 24th @ Sheffield Arena Sheffield, Yorkshire, UK on Sky Sports PPV. Promoter Eddie Hearn, is hoping to reschedule the bout before the end of 2015. This depends on how long it will take for Kell Brook to recover. "Kell picked up a rib injury in sparring yesterday and spent most of the day at hospital yesterday," Hearn said. “Kell was desperate to fight but it was simply impossible and we will now look to reschedule the bout for the end of the year."

The event will go on with a new headliner Chris Eubank Jr. vs Tony Jeter for the interim WBA World middleweight title scheduled for 12 rounds. Also, Gavin McDonnell puts his unbeaten record on the line versus Jeremy Parodi.
