Kell Brook to defend IBF welterweight title against Errol Spence Jr

Brook, who suffered the first defeat of his career to middleweight Gennady Golovkin, saw hopes of a domestic showdown with Amir Khan come to a halt after talks broke down.

Spence is the mandatory challenger for the Sheffield man's IBF strap and boasts a perfect record of 21 wins from 21 fights, with 18 victories coming inside the distance.
Spence Jr has beaten Leonard Bundu and Chris Algieri inside the distance in his last two fights           

Spence Jr's trainer Derrick James told Sky Sports at the beginning of the month that travelling to the UK for the bout is "not a problem at all" for his fighter.

Spence Jr was part of the USA team that came to London for the 2012 Olympic Games, but he missed out on a medal by losing in the welterweight quarter-finals.


this is a fight im really looking foward to, lets take a look at the highlight reel of both fighters below.

Kell Brook 36(25)-1(1)
