IBF welterweight titleholder Errol Spence Jr. apparently kept an eye on Kell Brook’s bounce-back win over the weekend, when he knocked out Sergey Rabchenko in two rounds. Following the fight Spence, who took the IBF strap off of Brook last year, tweeted out that he’d be willing to run it back with Brook at 154lbs should Brook be able to secure a world title.
If Kell Brook gets a world title I’ll fight him at 154— Errol Spence (@ErrolSpenceJr) March 4, 2018
Brook’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, wasted almost no time in responding in the affirmative.
Hearn also went on to say the he strongly favors Brook to beat Spence at 154lbs, where he believes Brook is just much better suited.
“I’ve always believed that Kell Brook is one of the biggest talents in world boxing – but I’ve also always believed he was boxing at the wrong weight. Kell always thought he could do 147 pounds and, in this day and age of social media, he was almost goaded into getting back to 147 pound to defend his title against Spence after fighting GGG at 160 pounds, people saying he was ducking Spence if he vacated and he wouldn’t do that. Take nothing from Errol Spence but I believe Kell beats him at 154.”
Would any of you like to see Spence and Brook go head-to-head once more, this time up the scale? And if so, do you see the fight playing out any differently than the first time?
