Sheffield welterweight Kell Brook has conceded that he is no closer to knowing when he will fight for a world title.
Floyd Mayweather Jr's indication that Alexander was a potential opponent for his May return has put Brook's chances of securing a fight with 'The Great' in serious doubt.
Brook has admitted that the situation has left him devastated but 'The Special One' has vowed to stay hungry and seize his chance when it eventually comes.
He told Sky Sports News: "I'm still in limbo with it all. I'm absolutely gutted. I've been training for 13 weeks, then I heard from my family. Finding out the news, I can't put into words how devastated I am.
"But I've got to be professional about it. I've got to keep ticking over, keep my mind on it and wait to hear from them.
"This kind of thing has happened to me before on a smaller scale. I've just got to keep my mind on it. It is hard to deal with, but I've just got to deal with it and be ready for what comes next."
