share on:

American trainer Derrick James has said IBF welterweight champion, Kell Brook has no choice but to face Errol Spence Jr to defend his belt.

Eddie Hearn says it is 70-80 percent certain Brook will be defending his title against the mandatory challenger, with talks with Amir Khan falling through.

James however says Kell Brook has no choice but to face Errol Spence Jr and defend his IBF title.

“We’ve heard about that fight [Khan], but we’re not concerned with that because Eddie Hearn does say a lot of different things.

“Kell Brook wanted to fight Khan and be champion, but if he wants to stay champion, he’s got to fight Errol.

“We’re happy about it. We’ve worked a long time to get where we are and the outcome has made us happy. I can tell you, it’s going to be a pretty good fight.

“We’re expecting it to happen in the next three or four months and fighting in the UK is not a problem at all.”
