Kell Brook Confirms Immediate Retirement

Former IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook has confirmed his immediate retirement from professional boxing at 36 years of age.

Sheffield’s Brook made his professional debut in September 2004, and retires with a record of 40-3 (28 KOs).

In what is now confirmed to be the last fight of his career, Kell Brook stopped long-time rival Amir Khan in six rounds at the Manchester Arena back in February.

Brook’s team had been in talks with representatives of Chris Eubank Jr regarding a bout between the pair, but Brook has chosen to sign off on his personally satisfying victory over Khan.

In what was his crowning night, Kell Brook edged out Shawn Porter via majority decision in Carson back in 2014 to capture the IBF welterweight title – a belt he made three successful defences of before being dethroned by Errol Spence at Brammall Lane in 2017.

Boxing Social would like to wish Kell Brook all the best in his retirement.
