Kell Brook vs Errol Spence A Done Deal

Kell Brook vs Errol Spence is a done deal.

Brook's promoter, Eddie Hearn, confirmed the news via Twitter:

The news was also confirmed by IBF championship chairman Lindsey Tucker who told Boxing Scene on Monday that the purse bid for the bout had abeen canceled after both parties have reached an agreement to a May 20 fight in Brook's hometown of Sheffield, England. The date and venue aren't official yet but Hearn told Sky Sports that he has been in talks with Sheffield United about holding the bout at their Bramall Lane Stadium at the end of May.

Spence is Brook's mandatory challenger. The 26 year old southpaw from Texas is unbeaten in 21 fights with 18 KOs. Known as the Truth, Spence is coming off a May 20, 2016 knockout of Leonard Bundu. 

Brook was rumored to be moving up to the 154 pound division after his loss to Gennady Golovkin last year. But despite Hearn's advice, the Sheffield standout decided to keep his IBF strap and face Spence instead. Hearn and Brook also tried to negotiate a massive domestic fight with rival Amirk Khan but that did not materialize.
