The knock out artist has always had issues making weight for his fights and has constantly been testing positiveto a banned enhancement drug Zilpaterol, through out his eight year professional career.

Nery, who ones lost his title to the scales and attracted a ban also missed an opportunity to fight Emmanuel Rodriguez on Deontay Wilder Vs Luis Ortiz Rematch Undercard back in November because he failed to make weight for the fight.

Former IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook presently has little issues making a big return to the 147 pound division.

Brook, who hails from Sheffield hasn't fought in the weight division since, his title reign came to an abrupt end by way of a stoppage loss to reigning unified welterweight titlist Errol Spence back in 2017. Since then, he has fought four times in the Junior middle weight division and in his last outing back in February, knocked out Mark ‘Bazooka’ DeLuca before his hometown Fans.
Brook is currently the front runner to land a fight with undefeated three division champion Terence Crawford, which is clearly not a good option for "Bud" but will the best bout to settle for, if he fails to lure into the ring, the big names in the welterweight division.
