Alexander vs Brook: Kell Brook injured again, may have to withdraw from May 18 fight

Scott Heavey

The Devon Alexander-Kell Brook fight could be postponed for the third time, as Eddie Hearn has confirmed that Kell Brook is dealing with a foot injury.

Kell Brook is once again dealing with an injury, and promoter Eddie Hearn has confirmed that the 26-year-old Sheffield native is receiving treatment on his foot, but has not made a statement on the severity of the injury.

There is concern that Brook (29-0, 19 KO) will have to again postpone his fight with Devon Alexander, which is currently scheduled for May 18, its third date of the year. The bout was originally set for January 26, but Brook suffered an ankle injury. Alexander pulled out of the February 23 rescheduled date with an injury of his own. And now, we've got Brook's foot, and yet another possible postponement.

The fight is an IBF mandatory welterweight title bout, with Alexander making his first defense of the belt he won from Randall Bailey last year. Both Alexander and Brook last fought on October 20, with Brook beating Hector Saldivia in the UK, and Alexander outpointing Bailey in Brooklyn on the debut Barclays Center show.
