• IBF welterweight champion Brook to fight Bizier


    LONDON: Britain’s Kell Brook will make the third defense of his IBF welterweight title against Canadian mandatory challenger Kevin Bizier in Sheffield, northern England on March 26, he announced on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila). Brook, 29, has overcome the rib injury that obliged him to cancel a prospective fight with Diego Chaves in October.  Brook (35-0-0) last fought in May when he pulled off a comfortable six-round win over compatriot Frankie Gavin. Bizier, 31, has won 25 of his 27 bouts (25-2-0), but lost in 2014 to Romania’s Ionut Dan Ion, who Brook beat in four rounds last March.
