Kell Brook’s recent interview comments about Eddie Hearn have him furious, and he’s not pleased with some of the stuff he said. In reaction to former IBF welterweight champion Brook saying he hadn’t heard from his former promoter Hearn since his fight with Mark DeLuca last February, Hearn says Kell choose to negotiate the fight deal with Top Rank to face Terence Crawford without including him.
Hearn feels that Brook turned his back on him and negotiated the deal with Top Rank without him. Eddie isn’t quite sure what the rationale was for Brook not choosing to use him to negotiate the fight with WBO welterweight champion Crawford on November 14th, but he believes it could be money or he wants to go his separate ways.
Brook said if there’s no money in it for Hearn, then he’s not interested. He said there would have been money for Hearn if he had worked with him on the Crawford fight. I was quite disappointed and angry, said Hearn to IFL TV about Brook’s recent interview. I want to stay classy so I won’t say too much about Brook’s career, but I will say 99 percent of what he said was bollox.
Let’s start with the Crawford fight and Sky situation. He was talking to Top Rank, and he had meetings with Top Rank about that fight, and probably other fights as well, which didn’t go down very well with me. I’m an all or nothing kind of guy. They come back, couldn’t get the Crawford fight, so they asked me to do is fight. He fought Mark DeLuca, and then after the DeLuca fight, they carried on their conversations with Top Rank. I was never involved in one conversation with Top Rank regarding this fight, said Hearn.
