Brook Sets date for First Defence
- Updated: January 19, 2015
IBF welterweight champion Kell ‘Special K’ Brook will make his highly anticipated first defence of the title on March 28th in his home town of Sheffield at the Motorpoint Arena. Brook won the belt in August with a career best performance, outpointing the previously unbeaten Shawn Porter. His first defence had to be delayed a while after Kell was stabbed in the leg while on holiday in Tenerife.
The challenger for the belt will be announced at a press conference this Thursday.
