Kell Brook puts his IBF welterweight title on the line against undefeated United States fighter Errol Spence this Saturday in Sheffield.

Brook, who needed to have a metal plate inserted behind his eye socket because he broke his orbital bone in the fight against against Golovkin, predicted he would "win in style".

Groves and Chudinov are scheduled to start around 9.30pm while the early bouts have already started with fights going on from 4.45pm. Having done so, the sense was that this biggest of welterweights would stay at that level having in the buildup to facing Golovkin expressed his contentment at not having to boil down so much before a fight. Brook won the belt via Majority Decision against Shawn Porter in August 2014 and has successfully defended it three times. With that being said, it's really on Errol Spence.

Spence Jr, who weighed in at 146lb 5oz and also looked in excellent condition, will cause Brook problems, particularly given he is a southpaw.

Backed by most of the 27,000 spectators at Bramall Lane in his Sheffield hometown, Brook met Spence on even terms in the first eight rounds.

The undercard includes a WBA super middleweight title fight between George Groves of London and Fedor Chudinov of Russian Federation.

The 31-year-old completed his descent from the middleweight division by coming in under 147lbs for the fourth defence of his title and his toughest fight to date at that weight.
