According to world-class trainer Kevin Cunningham, the anticipated welterweight clash between IBF champion Devon Alexander and mandatory challenger Kell Brook has been rescheduled for May 18 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Although no venue was mentioned, the bout will likely take place at Boardwalk Hall and will be televised on Showtime.
The fight was originally scheduled for January 26, but an inkle injury suffered by Brook forced the postponement of the bout until February 23. Later, a bicep injury suffered by Alexander would again force the postponement of the matchup. Hopefully, between now and May 18, both fighters can avoid the injury bug that's been going around in 2013 and fans will finally get a chance to see this intriguing showdown.
