Hurd Continues To Call Out Kell Brook
Jarrett Hurd is tired of the talk from Kell Brook, and wants a fight against him before the end of 2018 in the United States.
Hurd, the current WBA and IBF super-welterweight champion, told Sky Sports this week that… “I was watching a few interviews on YouTube with Kell Brook saying a few things like ‘the kid Hurd’s not that good’, and he’d fight me if there was a belt on the line.”
Hurd says he’s seen interviews of Brook downplaying his ability and now wants to square off with him in the ring, telling Sky Sports:
“Not only does he say he would fight me if there was one belt on the line because I am no good, well I’ve got three belts. If he wants to show he is up for the challenge, I’ve got the opportunity for him.”
Hurd sees Brook as the stepping stone to a unification fight with WBC super-welterweight champion, Jermell Charlo.
“I’ve got my size advantage and just me, who I am… the No1 unified champion. Anything I can do in the ring I capitalise on, I can walk Kell down, it doesn’t matter, nothing he can do can neutralize anything I’ve got.”
Kell Brook dominated Sergey Rabchenko this past March, but has been linked to fight cards featuring Amir Khan, who also wants a crack at Brook before the end of 2018.
