With the boxing season now back in full swing, there are several decent shows fast approaching, on the horizon.

On 3 March, the Sheffield fighter Kell Brook makes his return to the ring as he attempts to steer his career back towards world title level.

Brook hasn?t fought for nine months, since being beaten by the rising American star, Errol Spence Jnr.

In that fight, Brook suffered a fractured eye socket an injury that required surgery.

The injury was the exact same one as that which he received when he challenged Genady Golovkin, but the opposite eye.

Speaking to the media ahead of his comeback fight, against Sergey Rabchenko, Brook has spoken about his recovery from a second serious injury, remarking,

‘I’ve overcome it. I’m around people who love me. I’m in the gym with great talent pushing one another.

‘I’ve been going away to Fuerteventura – plenty of air, plenty of water, beautiful food, letting endorphins off after training – and now I feel fantastic.

‘Losing in my home town of Sheffield, it upset me really badly. You have to brush yourself down to continue boxing, get passion and love for it again.

‘I’ve had X-rays on both eyes, the bone has grown back and I have plates over each one, so I’m like a Terminator now and ready to walk through walls.’

Naturally, there is talk of Brook finally getting the fight against Amir Khan he craves, with brook further adding,

‘I’m an ex-world champion, same pedigree as Khan. I’m not going to be fed crumbs.’

Which would seem to indicate that money matters could still be a serious obstacle in getting the fight sorted.

But for now, we?re looking forward to Brook returning to action, against Rabchenko, in Sheffield, a week on Saturday, it could a thriller.
