Kell gutted at missing out!


Recommended Posts

BRITISH welterweight champion Kell Brook hopes his title defence against Michael Jennings will be rescheduled “very quickly” after pulling out of the fight with a virus.


The Sheffield youngster had been due to defend his belt at the ECHO Arena on Friday against former WBO title challenger Jennings.


However, a recent illness has forced him out while Jennings will tick over with a non-title eight-rounder against Hungarian Laszlo Komjathi.


Undefeated 23-year-old Brook, the 2009 boxing writers’ young boxer of the year, said: “I’m gutted that I won’t be part of what will be a very big fight night in Liverpool.


“I came down with the virus after collecting my boxing writers’ award in London last week.


“Since then I haven’t been able to move let alone train and there’s no way I was going to fight a top fighter like Jennings in this state.


“I was really looking forward to defending my British title but I hope that the fight with Jennings will be back on very quickly.”
