Britain’s IBF welterweight champion, Kell Brook will go against undisputed world middleweight champion, Gennady Golovkin on 10 September in London.
The undisputed world middleweight champion is unbeaten in 35 pro fights. With 32 of those fights, ending in knockouts.
Golovkin was set to fight British middleweight champion, Chris Eubank Jr. But Kell Brook will be the one facing the Kazakhstan boxer.
“When this fight was offered I accepted in a minute. I’m a huge welterweight and I will carry my speed, accuracy and power through the weights,” said Brook.
“This is the ultimate fight, one of the biggest international fights this country has seen in many years.
“You have seen some huge names run from Golovkin but I’m running to him. I’m a special fighter and I will show the world on 10 September.”
“I’m very excited to be fighting in front of the great British boxing fans and promise another ‘big drama’ show,” said 34-year-old Golovkin, the WBC, WBA and IBF middleweight champion.
The WBC, WBA and IBF middleweight champion has never boxed in Britain before but has beaten two British fighters in world title defences – Matt Macklin was knocked out in three rounds in 2013 and Martin Murray lasted 11 rounds in 2015.
Both Brook and Golovkin have been hunting huge-money fights in recent years but have been repeatedly frustrated.
Kell Brook is unbeaten in 36 pro fights, with 25 knockouts. It will be an exciting encounter.
