( C ) Kell ‘Special K’ Brook (36-1, 25 KO’s) vs. Errol ‘The Truth’ Spence Jr (21-0, 18 KO’s)
It’s back to welterweight for Kell Brook. The IBF champion has successfully defended his title three times and is looking add another one to the win column. His last fight ended in a TKO stoppage loss provided by Gennady Golovkin but Brook showed tremendous heart and toughness in fighting arguably the best middleweight boxer in the world.
As our expert columnist and former champion Glenn McCrory pointed out, history doesn’t always favor the fighter dropping back down after going up in weight.
“Can Brooke still be strong at welterweight? Well history is littered with names that failed in their bid after moving up in weight to come back down to perform at there best. Sugar Ray Leonard, Roy Jones, and Oscar De La Hoya all lost their magic dropping back down so can Brook be different?”
Brook definitely has a tough task ahead of him.
