Welterweight world champion boxer Kell Brook has been stabbed in the leg while on vacation in Tenerife, Spanish police say.

Brook's promoters said he was in a stable condition in hospital. Police have confirmed the boxer was admitted to La Candelaria Hospital in the northeastern city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

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

Brook was stabbed in his left leg on Wednesday (NZT Thursday) 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 said they were investigating the incident, and no arrests had been made.
