Sheffield's unbeaten welterweight boxer Kell Brook is set for a world title shot against IBF champion Devon Alexander in the USA in January. That means that his much anticipated all-British encounter with Amir Khan will have to be put to one side, for now at least.
Kell earned the right for a shot at the title after defeating Hector Saldivia at the Motorpoint Arena last month. His promoter Eddie Hearn hopes the fight will take place on January 19th in either Las Vegas or New York.
