Kell Brook's long-awaited world-title challenge against the holder, Devon Alexander, has been re-arranged for 18 May at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall.

The bout for the IBF welterweight title had been cancelled twice owing to both men suffering injuries in training.

"It's been a frustrating wait, but now I'm ready to get in there on 18 May and bring that title home," said Brook, who is the mandatory challenger to Alexander's crown.

"We've both had to pull out through injury so we are both hungry for the fight, but I believe I will prove I've got a bigger appetite for the battle and that I'll be too good for him."
