Adding on to Kell Brook's tweet stating that he would be facing mandatory challenger Errol Spence Jr next, Brook's promoter Eddie Hearn validated Brook's statement a day later stating that Kell Brook vs Errol Spence Jr was a done deal. The fight is set to take place in the U.K.
While the original date of May 20th was tossed around various reports, at this time there is no official date set for the fight. It's expected to take place in May, likely on May 20th or May 27th. The toughest fight on Brook's resume to date is to middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin. Brook moved up to 160 to face the most feared man in boxing and suffered a 5th round TKO loss. Many felt Brook's spirited effort was enough to trouble the feared GGG. Spence Jr. has yet to face the opposition that Brook has on his resume. Spence Jr is however considered one of the most talented fighters in the sport today with many predicting that he can become as great as Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao. The fight is expected to be great, with the winner moving on to even greater things.
