Kell Brook wants to end his career on a high note as he targets the winner of Chris Eubank Jr. and Liam Smith this summer.
After notching up the biggest win of his career over his fierce rival, Amir Khan, boxing experts thought that would be the end of Kell Brook’s spell as a professional boxer but a fresh development has signalled that he is not done with boxing yet.
Brook will be ringside witnessing the All-Britsh clash between Eubank Jr. and Smith unfold before his eyes and as per his promoter, Ben Shalom, the 36-year-old is keen on staging a fight with the winner of this contest.
“He feels he wants the winner of this fight, whether that’s Liam Smith or whether that’s Eubank Jr. There is a rematch clause, so if Liam does win, Eubank will have the option with that one, but there’ll be massive fights for whoever the winner is,” told Shalom to Sky Sports.
Brook’s last fight came in February, last year. For a fight to happen with either Eubank or Smith, his management will need to put in hard yards to make it happen. But as of now, it seems far from reality.
Eubank has already notified the boxing world of his upcoming bouts if he gets past Smith this Saturday. But even if he doesn’t, he has a rematch clause that will put him again in the claws of Smith.
In the current circumstances, Brook needs to get a couple of tune-up bouts under his belt before he can vouch for a fight with Eubank Jr. which he has been calling for the past year or so.
