Second coming of Brook March 3

MRN Kell Brook Run 39Kell Brook meets Sergey Rabchenko at the FlyDSA Arena in Sheffield on Saturday night [March 3] on his debut at 154lbs and the Sheffield fighter says his first outing at Super-Welter feels like his DEBUT all over again.

The pair meet for the WBC silver super-welterweight title and Brook couldn’t be more confident ahead of the FIGHT.

“I’ve got the butterflies and nerves just like it’s my first time getting in there,” Brook told DAILY SPORT Boxing. “I think that I need to feel like that though, those nerves are going to make me sharper because I know that there’s a lot at stake on Saturday.

“I’m loving boxing again and things can change, and I still feel that I’ve got big fights left in me before I call it a day. I’d love to win a title at Super-Welterweight.

“There was a list of fighters in front of us and Rabchenko stood out. He’s a very dangerous fighter and the fans might have let me off fighting someone lesser than him, but I wanted to fight him because I need to come back in a serious fight to stay switched on and not cut corners in the gym.

“You have to be professional but with a lesser opponent I might have enjoyed Christmas a bit more but not with Rabchenko, he’s a real threat. He’s boxed at a high level, been European champion, beaten my mate Ryan Rhodes – Ryan has boxed Canelo so to be stopped by Rabchenko it shows he is a good fighter and this is the right test for me in my first fight at 154lbs.

“Eddie named other fighters but I said no. I know that he’s a handful and he’s tough and clever. He’s calm and thoughtful in a fight, and I need a test like this. I can’t be half-hearted, I need to be fully committed and I will be for Rabchenko.”
