Terence Crawford-Kell Brook Officially Announced For November 14


LAS VEGAS – The Terence Crawford-Kell Brook fight finally was announced Saturday night.


The site of the Crawford-Brook card wasn’t announced during the broadcast, but it is expected to take place within the Top Rank/ESPN “Bubble” at MGM Grand Conference Center.


All of the Top Rank shows ESPN has aired or streamed from the United States since June 9 have been held at MGM Grand Conference Center due to COVID-19 restrictions.


Promoter Bob Arum, whose company represents Crawford, considered bringing the Crawford-Brook bout to Omaha, Nebraska, Crawford’s hometown, but Arum and the rest of Top Rank’s decision-makers think it is safer for the fighters and everyone else involved to hold it at MGM Grand.


Brook (39-2, 27 KOs) is willing to go back down to the welterweight limit of 147 pounds for the opportunity to become a two-time champion against one of the top three boxers, pound-for-pound, in the sport.


The three-division champion hasn’t boxed since he knocked down Lithuania’s Egidijus Kavaliauskas (22-1-1, 18 KOs) three times and stopped him in the ninth round December 14 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
