Ahead of the huge bout this Saturday evening.

After getting beaten by Gennady Golovkin, when he climbed up two weight divisions, whilst also picking up a badly damaged eye-socket, Kell Brook will be eager to get back into the ring on Saturday night and get back to winning ways.

Ahead of the fight, his trainer, Dominic Ingle, has spoken to the BBC about the eye injury, making the weight and the outcome of the fight, remarking,

‘He’s been sparring Jamie Cox and took a straight right on the eye. He shook his head and got on with it. If anything had to be flagged up it would have happened there.

‘The weight has always been a struggle for Kell. No one in life wants to deprive himself but he knows he has to do it.

‘He’s comfortably uncomfortable if that makes sense. He’s seen all this before. Leading up to the fight the world is swirling around you and really his main concern is when he will get to eat next. He’s not being distracted with everything.

‘If Kell Brook loses this, he won’t be able to show his face in Sheffield. Not because of the people but because I know how Kell Brook reacts. It took him a while to get over the Golovkin fight.’

The Golovkin fight was always going to be a risk, Golovkin has been fighting as a natural middleweight for years and there was no shame in losing.

Saturday night is different, Errol Spence is a brash, unbeaten southpaw who is a natural welterweight who punches very hard, will Brook have the skills to beat him or will the confident Spence claim the spoils of war?
