Brook to Defend IBF Welterweight Title against English Rival
LONDON (AP) -€” Kell Brook will defend his IBF welterweight belt against Frankie Gavin in an all-English world title fight in London on May 30.
It will be Brook's second title defense, after stopping Jo Jo Dan in four rounds last month.
The 29-year-old Gavin lost a split decision against European welterweight champion Leonard Bundu last year for his first defeat as a professional.
Brook had wanted to take on Amir Khan in his next fight. Khan, though, has chosen a fight against Chris Algieri.
