On May 27th Kell Brook steps back into the ring as a welterweight.

After an unsuccessful dalliance as a middleweight saw the Sheffield fighter suffer the first defeat of his career against Gennady Golovkin, Brook will be making a defence of his IBF crown against the highly-rated American fighter Errol Spence Junior.

It is a fight the pundits in the trade are suggesting could go either way and it is also a fight that the public cannot wait to see.

The fight will take place at the home of Sheffield United Football Club, Bramall Lane, with Sheffield United being the club Brook supports.

The stadium holds 32,000 people and yesterday tickets for the promotion went on sale.

Incredibly, 17,000 tickets were sold on that first day and it looks as if the fight will be a sell-out by early next week.

The rapid take-up of tickets is testament to the pulling power of this fight and we?re eagerly counting the days down until the two fighters climb into the ring.

It is going to be a cracker.
