Kell Brook (36-2, 25 KOs) says he’s had a CT scan and it’s confirmed that the 31-year-old suffered a broken left eye socket in his 11th round knockout loss to unbeaten Errol Spence Jr. (22-0, 19 KOs) last Saturday night in his fight at Bramall Lane in Sheffield, England.

Brook says he’s possibly looking surgery to repair the busted eye socket. This is terrible news for Brook’s career.
Losing 2 fights in a row is bad enough, but to suffer consecutive broken eye sockets to different eyes, this is really bad.

Brook says the eye injury is a bad one like the broken right eye socket he suffered in his previous fight against Gennady “GGG” Golovkin on September 10 last year in London, England.

Brook needed 8 months to come back from the surgery to continue his boxing career. It remains to be seen how much time Brook will need to come back from his latest broken eye socket to his left eye. If Brook does need an extended amount of time to recover, then we might not see him back inside the ring until 2018.

Brook said after his loss to Spence last Saturday night that he believes he can still make 147 to stay in the welterweight division. However, Brook is now saying that he thinks it’s time for him to move up to the 154 pound division to start fighting at junior middleweight.

One thing that could change Brook’s mind is a big money fight against his nemesis Amir Khan, who likely would want no part of fighting at 154. The weight doesn’t help Khan, who looked sluggish in getting stopped by Saul Canelo Alvarez in the 6th round in his last fight in May of 2016.

Khan still hasn’t fought ever since that fight.
“They kept me in until about 3am. I had a CT scan on my eye and the eye is broken again, same as the Golovkin one, so, maybe surgery again,” said Brook to Sky Sports News HQ. “I think the time is now maybe to move up.”
