Kell Brook is in amazing shape ahead of his fight against Terence Crawford on Saturday.
Brook is fighting one of the pound-for-pound best in the sport in Crawford and at 34-years-old, and it could be one of his last chances to have a big payday fight for the belt.
The Englishman enters this fight against Crawford in great shape and on a winning streak. Ever since losing back-to-back fights to Gennady Golovkin and Errol Spence Jr., which are his only two losses, he has rebounded to win three in a row.
Yet, this is a tough test for Brook but his training appears to be going well as photos were recently released showing the physique of the 34-year-old.
For Kell Brook, he knows people are overlooking him and the weight is a concern given he hasn’t made welterweight since 2017. However, he knows he will make it as he is calling this is the biggest fight of his career.
“I know people are writing me off, saying I’m 34 and haven’t made welterweight for years,” said Brook (via TalkSport). “I feel this is the moment where I become great in this fight. If you had seen me in the last four or five months I have been obsessed,” Brook told 5 Live from his base in Las Vegas. I’ve sacrificed, taken myself away from my girls and been training so hard because I know that if I walk away from the sport I want to know I have done everything I can. This is the biggest fight of my career.”
For his opponent, Terence Crawford enters this fight with a perfect 36-0 record. However, Brook expects his size to be the difference maker which will cause Crawford problems and eventually hand him his first career loss.
“People are panicking about the weight – the weight is made,” added Brook. “He has never boxed anyone the size of me – a genuine, strong, big, determined welterweight. He does everything so well. He basically has it all, an elite fighter. I can’t say he has things I can pull him down on but I know one thing, I am going to give his chin a good check. I know I will have to box the best I have ever in my career to get that win.”
