Default Who does Kell Brook fight for the vacant IBF?

With Alexander likely fighting Mayweather in what is an awful match even by Floyd's standards, that leaves Brook to fight for the vacant IBF title.

Looking at the top 15 of the IBF rankings, who do you feel he should fight for the title?

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Now Zaveck already has WBO eliminator lined up with Keith Thurman for March, so that's unlikely.

Jackiewicz is ranked number 3, but Kell has already dominated and stopped him in 6 rounds. He's also fighting for the European title in April.

Randall 'Old Man' Bailey is the only one without a fight lined up, but in his last fight lost to the IBF champion.

What do you reckon?

Have to be Bailey, or maybe a Carson Jones rematch. He'll walk to the title if that's the scenario. Why is there no number 2?

Carson Jones rematch.

He thoroughly deserves it after his performance 1st time round & we will see just how much Kell has improved physically since hiring a nutritionist & S&C coach.

Easy fight to sell then Brook-Khan next

yes Carson Jones rematch. 1st fight was exciting.

Or maybe randal bailey.

Those rankings are disgraceful. Welterweight is supposed to be stacked.

Guererro in Sheffield. If he's sorted his stamina issues I think he beats the ghost convincingly

He's not ranked by the IBF though.

Why would the IBF set Guerrero up for a shot at their title when he is not even ranked by them?

Alexander's team must of found a way to keep their paws on the IBF belt, it's pretty much his only bargaining tool to bring to the table for Floyd.

It's a shame for Brook though, gutted for him to be honest.

I don't think Devon will get the Floyd fight.
