Brook loses IBF welterweight title to Spence Jr

Share
Kell Brook is knocked down during his IBF Welterweight World Championship bout with Errol Spence at Bramall Lane

The 27-year-old Texan is said to be a potential superstar in the making and is a slight favorite with bookmakers.

Brook said: 'It was a very tough fight, he's the best kid I've been in with. "I will become world welterweight champion tomorrow night". I've made sure I've put myself through it.

'It was getting worse, in the last round I had double vision and I couldn't see. Brook's counter to such odds is that none of his challenger's previous opponents could hold a candle to him.

"There is nothing that Spence can do that Kell has not dealt with before - Kell will be there from the start and Spence has never had to deal with that", insisted Dominic Ingle.

Even after moving up to middleweight to fight Gennady Golovkin, Brook did not want to surrender his world title without a fight and has returned to 147lbs.

The former thinks another classic could be in the offing with Spence and he would not be surprised if both men are knocked down before a conclusion is reached. You can catch this at around 6/4 at the moment on Spence and Brook at as high as 5/1 in some places to stop Spence Jr inside the distance. We'll both maybe hit the canvas.

"For us it's all eyes on Spence but of course that fight [Brook vs Khan] remains one of the biggest fights out there".
