Spanish police say welterweight world champion boxer Kell Brook was stabbed in the leg while on vacation in Tenerife.

Brook's promoters say he is in stable condition at a hospital.

The 28-year-old British boxer won the IBF welterweight title against American rival Shawn Porter on Aug. 16 in California.

Brook was stabbed in his left leg while at the Golf del Sur resort complex in the southern town of San Miguel de Abona on the island in the Atlantic Ocean.

Police say they are investigating the events surrounding the stabbing but no arrests have yet been made.
