On Saturday night, at the Sheffield Arena, Kell Brook makes a return to the ring.

The former world champion is looking for a return to winning ways after losing both his previous fights, against Gennady Golovkin and Errol Spence Jnr.

In both fight, Brook suffered eye damage which required the insertion of titanium plates.

Now set to campaign as a light-middleweight, Brook knows that he cannot afford another defeat, otherwise his career could be over.

Talking to the media head of the fight against Sergey Rabchenko, Brook has responded to those who have doubts as to whether he should be continuing in the sport, remarking,

‘People are right to question what I’ve got left and how I am going to be after the injuries and defeats.

‘I know that I’ve got a lot left in me. I believe I am going to be the same fighter, I’ll be better with the bigger weight which will bring the best out of me.’

And as for the eye damage he suffered in his previous two fights, Brook further remarked,

‘The eye has healed very well. It’s held up in sparring and I don’t think about the eye injuries at all.

‘I wouldn’t be boxing if I wasn’t given the all-clear by the doctors, I wouldn’t put my family or myself through that.

‘I didn’t want an easy fight back, if I had done, I could’ve fallen out of love with it, cut corners and not reached the heights in training that I need to reach to be the best Kell Brook.

‘Rabchenko is a dangerous guy, he’s no mug and he can really bang.’

Does Brook still have something left in the tank or will it be a fight too far?

On Saturday night I?m guessing we?ll be given the answer to that question.
