Kell eyes warm up bout in world title build up
Kell Brook is determined to keep ticking over so there is no ring-rust ahead of this year’s IBF world title match up with Shawn Porter.
The Sheffield welterweight only fought twice last year as bad luck and injuries kept him away from competing for one of the biggest prizes in sport.
He is mandatory challenger for Porter’s crown but it doesn’t seem as though the two will meet in the first half of 2014.
So a warm-up is on the cards.
“There’s still talks going on, but I’ll be fighting maybe the middle or the end of March” he said.
“I’m back in training. It’s just a keep-busy fight for me if anything because I’ve got my eye on that world title fight.
“I just wanted to go for the world title fight, but Porter winning it off Devon (Alexander,) it has given him a little bit of extra time. I think he can get in a voluntary. I’m hearing that they’re having a rematch.”
Porter outpointed Alexander in December, a surprise win in many people’s eyes.
“When we get to this level, they are all good fighters,” Brook told skysports.com
“In that fight, he was smothering Devon. I think that’s the only way you can get on to Devon, because he’s a negative fighter. He’s always running on the back foot.
“He went to him and put it on him. I think fighting me is a whole different story, when he feels my power and the game plan we’ve got for him.”
