In a recent interview with The Star, ‘Special K’ Kell Brook updated his current situation.
The last two fights have been rough for the former welterweight champion. Brook got battered by Gennady Golovkin last year and then lost his IBF title to Errol Spence Jr back in May.
“I will be fighting again, but just not this year,” Brook confirmed.
According to Brook, after two losses he’s taking time off but will eventually push himself back into title contention.
“I know I will have to push myself to get back in there but I still want to be a champion,” he said.
The former IBF World welterweight champion took a big risk when he went up to middleweight to face the one and only, Gennady Golovkin. It did not pay off as Golovkin pummeled his opponent and seriously hurt Brook’s eye.
