KELL BROOK TO RETURN JUNE 1

Kell Brook is ready to step back into the ring on the Anthony Joshua-Jarrell Miller undercard and aims to make another charge at a world title fight with a win in New York.

The 32-year-old from Sheffield is currently up in Fuerteventura in training camp as he looks forward to an expected fight on the Joshua-Miller bill at Madison Square Garden on June 1.

Brook has made it clear he is willing to campaign at welterweight or super-welterweight and hopes to produce a performance that will be fitting of another fight against one of the elite fighters at 147 or 154lbs.

Speaking on events Brook has been quoted as saying “My Dad has been speaking to Eddie and it’s looking like we’re going to be added to the AJ bill. The Anthony Joshua bill in New York.

“That would be a good box ticked. I’ve always wanted to box at Madison Square Garden and I’m looking for titles. I want some big names, so that’s where we stand.

“It’s a big bill, you’ve got AJ-Miller and Madison Square Garden. Every young fighter growing up, they always want to box at those kind of venues, as well as Las Vegas, MGM.

“I’m training towards that date and we’re looking for big names in the near future.

“Wherever the excitement is. I can still make welterweight. I believe this fight will probably be at catchweight, between 154lbs and 147lbs. We have this fight and then we move to a big name.”

Errol Spence Jr completed a one sided beat down over Mikey Garcia at the weekend to retain his IBF welterweight belt in style, the same title which he took from Brook when the Sheffield man was stopped with a fractured eye socket.

The former world champion who has now successfully completed surgery on both his eye sockets, believes he is still the man to operate at the highest level and would welcome a rematch with Spence Jr.

Brook went onto say “I’m brand new, I’m ready for those massive fights,”

“I’ve got plenty more to give for the fans. I’m excited about these big fights.

“I believe he [Spence Jr] dominated the fight. That fight is still there. He still mentions my name, he still would like to fight me, because he knows I was beating him.

“The people around me know what my training camp was like for that fight. I was far from 100 per cent, and I was beating him, and the eye went. I would love that fight again.

“A 100 per cent me, beats Errol Spence, and he’s one of the biggest names in boxing. I think those fights are still there to be made.”
