Brook v Alexander postponed again



Kell Brook will have to wait a little longer for his first world title bout.

The undefeated British welterweight was due to fight Devon Alexander in Detroit on February 23 but the bout was postponed on Monday.

Alexander, a 25-year-old American, has suffered a biceps injury during training. It forced an indefinite postponement of his defence of the IBF title.

He won the belt last October when he beat Randall Bailey on a unanimous decision.

Because of the injury, the fight against Brook has been postponed for the second time. They were due to clash in Los Angeles on January 19, but a new date had to be set after Brook suffered an ankle injury in December.

Brook, a 26-year-old slugger from Sheffield, has a professional record of 29-0 with 19 knockouts.

Alexander’s record stands at 24-1 with 13 knockouts.

The tournament in Detroit will continue. The main fight is now between local favourite Cornelius Bundrage and Ishe Smith.

Bundrage, the IBF junior middleweight champion, boasts a professional record of 32-4, including 19 knockouts. He will defend the belt against a fellow-American whose record stands at 24-5, with 11 knockouts.
