Kell Brook ready for Bramall Lane fight

25 May 2017

Kell Brook will realise a boyhood dream on Saturday night, when he defends his IBF World Welterweight title against mandatory challenger Errol Spence.

Speaking at the final press conference ahead of the bout in front of packed Bramall Lane crowd, Brook says the first bell can't come soon enough for him.

He remarked: "It's hit home now that I will be fighting at the Lane on Saturday and I'm thrilled.

"There aren't many tickets left, so if you want to be part of something special at the weekend you better grab them quickly.

"It promises to be a thrilling fight, it's the best versus the best and neither me or Errol will take a backwards step."

The lifelong Blade added: "I've imagined this for weeks and I've dreamt about this since being a young kid.

"I never thought I'd see a boxing ring on the pitch at Bramall Lane, but I'm ready and I'm determined and I'm excited.

"I've got a lot of memories of watching the Blades, my uncle used to throw me up in the air when we scored and at the weekend I want to be throwing my belt above my head once again."
