Gavin reckons he's unbeatable; BOXING.

KELL Brook insists he feels "unbeatable" as he prepares for a second title defence when he is challenged by Frankie Gavin on May 30.

The 28-year-old IBF welterweight champion defended his title against Jo Jo Dan in his home town of Sheffield last month but is now ready to step back into the ring to take on Gavin as a meeting with Amir Khan continues to prove illusive.

Khan will instead face Chris Algieri as he looks for a path to face Floyd Mayweather at some point in the future.

Gavin said he believes Khan took the wrong option but he will be the man who benefits from that after he was announced as Brook's opponent when the duo headline at London's O2 Arena next month.

Brook remains in confident mood ahead of the bout, even if he respects Gavin as a fighter. "I never expected to be out again so quickly but I can't wait," he said as the fight was announced by Matchroom.

"I respect Frankie for stepping up, he has called for stepping up, he has called for this fight for along time and this fight for along time and after he was given a final after he was given a final eliminator against Tim eliminator against Tim Bradley it made sense for him Bradley it made sense for him to take the challenge. I feel to take the challenge. I feel like I'm unbeatable right now like I'm unbeatable right now and Gavin isn't going to be and Gavin isn't going to be able to cope with my speed able to cope with my speed and power on fight night." and power on fight night."
