Kell Brook, a welterweight boxer, has been forced to withdraw from a match that was set for May 18th due to a stress fracture in his right foot. 

The match was against Devon Alexander, the current IBF welterweight titleholder.

This is the third match between the two that has had to be cancelled due to injury. The original match was set for January 19th, but it was cancelled when Brook suffered an ankle injury. The match was reset for February 23rd and was then cancelled when Alexander was forced to withdraw due to a bicep injury.

Stress fractures are very common sports injury and they require rest and avoidance of activity while they are healing.

Symptoms of a stress fracture include:

  • Pain after normal activity that goes away when resting and reappears when activity occurs again.
  • “Pinpoint pain” at the site of the stress fracture.
  • Swelling, but no bruising at the site of the stress fracture.
  • Pain with palpitation of the bone.

If you have these symptoms, you should medical treatment. If a stress fracture is ignored and not treated properly, they will come back.
