The United Kingdom's Kell Brook remained undefeated on Satuday March 26, as he easily stopped Kevin Bizier in the second round of the fight from the Sheffield Arena in Sheffield, England.
Brook, 29, retained his IBF world title once again and has maintained this position as champion ever since handing Shawn Porter his one and only loss back in August of 2014. Bizier (25-3, 17 KOs) had been the official mandatory challenger by the IBF, which drew a great amount of criticism from the boxing community.
The 31-year-old Bizier has developed an attractive professional record over the years, but wouldn't necessarily be mentioned in the upper echelon of welterweight contenders. This was only the second time that Bizier has fought outside of his native Canada and it was in front of a hometown Brook (36-0, 25 KOs) favored crowd.
Porter has been the most competitive contender that Brook has been in the ring with in his career. However, the other 35 bouts Brook has been in have not possessed a skill nearly as well equipped as Porter's. Brook has recently stated an eagerness to step into the ring with fellow undefeated fighter Danny Garcia and would be willing to travel to the United States for a potential matchup. Recent WBO world title winner Jessie Vargas was also mentioned as a potential opponent. Either way, Brook needs another credible fighter to stand across the ring from him in order to solidify himself within the highly competitive welterweight division. The dangerous middleweight monster Gennady Golovkin was also uttered by Brook and that he would go up in weight to take this fight. Hopefully he comes back into the ring this summer and has a Garcia, Vargas, or if he's crazy enough, a Golovkin.
