Earlier today, here at Vital Boxing, we expressed concerns in relation to the proposed date of Kell Brook?s first defence of his newly won IBF world welterweight title as possibly not being viable.

Laid up in a Tenerife hospital, following the highly publicized stabbing incident, Brook has been visited by his promoter Eddie Hearn who has since confirmed to the media,

?We were all glad to get out here and see Kell for ourselves,?

?The important thing now is to get him home and after some rest begin physiotherapy on his injuries. His first defence was planned on December 6 which is now unrealistic but we fully expect Kell to be back in the ring early next year.?

However, there is no mention of whether the December 6th promotion will be moved to another venue or simply, for the time being, postponed.
