Kell Brook returns to action in a Las Vegas showdown with WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford tonight.

The Brit has claimed three victories on the spin to rebuild his career following back-to-back defeats to Gennady Golovkin and Errol Spence Jr but has fought just once in the last two years.

Brook faces a huge task to topple the unbeaten Crawford

Now he’s set for an almighty tough test against Crawford, a 36 and 0 unbeaten champ who is widely regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters on the planet.

There are suggestions that Brook has taken this fight to secure one last pay day before hanging up his gloves.

But the Sheffield fighter is eager to prove his critics wrong and claim a welterweight world title for the first time since 2016.

Crawford beat Egidijus Kavaliauskas last time out and saw off Amir Khan in April, 2019.

On Friday, Crawford weighed in at 146.4 pounds, while Brook came in right on the welterweight limit of 147 pounds.

Boxer Errol Spence says Kell Brook is ‘washed’

Crawford vs Brook: What has been said?

‘Monster’ Brook insists he can beat Crawford and is not just in Las Vegas for one last pay day.

He said: “I’ve got to applaud Terence Crawford for taking this fight, because he is in there with a monster with self-belief.

“He is one hell of a fighter but a smaller man naturally to me. I’m a dangerous man, a big welterweight and a force to be reckoned with.

“Everybody has been writing me off. I’m going against everyone. This fight is for me. Nobody else bar me.”

Brook is not working with regular trainer Dominic Ingle due to the COVID-19 lockdown and is with Carlos Formento.

He added: “He’s a guy I followed on Instagram because I like his style.

“I had never worked with him previously because Dominic is my trainer number one. I messaged him on Instagram and basically said ‘let’s work together’.

“The first day, I knew that we gelled unbelievably. He is basically obsessed. He is passionate. And that’s everything I need in this fight.”
