Kell Brook dispels rumors about his retirement!

Former IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (38-2, 26KOs) has come out vehemently denying he’s going to retire.

Lately, many have been wondering what’s been up with the former champion. He’s been quite inactive since suffering back-to-back eye injuries in 2016 and 2017 respectively. He did, however, return twice in 2018 with the latter being a sub-par performance against Australia’s Michael Zerafa in December.

“I’m not sure where these reports have surfaced from, but I am NOT retired. I have had some time away from the ring, but me and my team have been pro-actively looking to secure big fights.

“We went to New York because we want to fight Terence Crawford.

“These are the level of fights that get me excited and I’d only ever want to bow out on a high, putting on an exciting show for my fans who have always shown me incredible support!

“If these BIG fights can be made, I’d love nothing more than to dance under them bright lights.

“So unless and until you hear it from me, know that The Special One still has a few more special nights in store for you guys.”

While it’s clear he’s not the fighter he once was, he’s still one of the better skilled in the welterweight division. Potential fights with countrymen Amir Khan and Terence Crawford still seem very possible for the former champion. will continue to monitor this story and provide updates as they become available.
