Eubank Jr. Bout Looms Despite Retirement Rumors

For a boxer supposedly retired, Kell Brook’s name refuses to fade into the background, consistently sparking debates and grabbing headlines. Since his emphatic victory over Amir Khan in February 2022, Brook, the former IBF welterweight champion, has danced on the fringes of retirement, never fully detaching himself from the sport that has defined his life.

Despite the supposed hiatus, Brook, now 37, confessed to the irresistible allure of the ring during a conversation with Simon Jordan. “I’m getting a bit bored. I look at these fighters now and think, ‘I could beat these guys,'” he admitted. The itch for competition, the grind of training, and the challenge of defying doubters still linger for Brook.

While time has allowed the wounds from Terence Crawford’s ruthless fourth-round stoppage in 2020 to heal, Brook contemplates a potential return, albeit with specific conditions. Financial and professional satisfaction must align for a comeback, and the list of opponents capable of meeting those criteria is notably short.

Brook eyes domestic clashes with the likes of Chris Eubank Jr. or Liam Smith, presenting lucrative opportunities. However, it’s Eubank Jr. who seems to evoke a deeper motivation. “Realistically I’d probably prefer to fight Chris Eubank Jnr. I just don’t like him,” Brook candidly expressed. The prospect of facing Eubank Jr., fueled by personal animosity, could be the driving force for Brook’s return.

With a disdain for Eubank Jr.’s arrogance, Brook envisions an easier training camp, propelled by the desire to settle a personal score. Despite acknowledging Eubank Jr.’s marketing prowess, Brook’s dislike for the fighter surpasses even that of Amir Khan.

“I think it could be made. I’m willing to fight. Let’s just see what can come from it,” Brook declared, leaving the door slightly ajar for a comeback that hinges on personal satisfaction and a lucrative payday.
