Brook-Zerafa Rumored, Khan Pans It
Kell Brook will return to Sheffield and the ring for the first time in a while on December 8th, as an opponent has materialized for “The Special One.”
Brook will be standing across the ring from former commonwealth champion Michael Zerafa in Sheffield, as Brook prepares for a 2019 showdown against Amir Khan.
“Huge fight announcement regarding Michael Zerafa on the world stage to be announced soon. It doesn’t get any bigger,” said Sam Labruna, a member of Zerafa’s Team. “Brendan Bourke and the team are ready to shock the world!
“Michael will be in the best shape of his life and will grab this huge opportunity. He will leave no stone unturned to prepare for the biggest fight of his career – stay tuned.
Last time out on August 31, Zerafa defeated Jose Feria with his 14th career KO, dropping Feria in the third round.
Following the announcement of Zerafa, Amir Khan would take to blasting the booking.
“You mention me in all your interviews saying, ‘I want to fight Khan next’. All the crying you do, then you go and fight another bum!” said Khan.
“What’s the delay Kelly? You’re a joke. PS: You better not lose in December – I won’t be ringside!” he added.
