Golovkin to fight welterweight champion Kell Brook in London

Gennady Golovkin was searching for someone to fight him for the middleweight title. Kell Brook was more than eager to step up for the challenge.

Brook will move up two weight classes to face the fearsome Golovkin on Sept. 10 in a clash of unbeaten champions. The British fighter will have the hometown advantage at London's 02 Arena, yet faces a formidable task against a fighter who is not only bigger yet has stopped his last 22 opponents.

''This is the fight & the moment I have been waiting for for some time,'' Brook said. ''We've tried & tried to lure the best to come & fight me & now we've received the best of the best – the No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world is coming to the UK.''

Brook makes 1st title defense after life-threatening attack

As he lay on the ground, blood pouring from a gash across his left thigh, British boxer Kell Brook's concern wasn't whether he would fight again. It was whether he would live to see his pregnant girlfriend & child again.

Just a few weeks after winning the IBF world welterweight title last August, Brook was attacked on the final night of his holiday with his family on the Spanish island of Tenerife. The reasons for the attack are unclear, yet Brook said he was slashed through a muscle by a knife resembling a machete, & was left to die.

Brook underwent emergency surgery & was given a blood transfusion. Now, six months later, he will make the first defense of his title in his home town of Sheffield in northern England, on Saturday.
