Kell Brook Set For Bramall Lane Title Defence

March 22, 2017

IBF World Welterweight champion Kell Brook will defend his title against Errol Spence Jr at Bramall Lane.

The ground, home to Brook’s favoured football team Sheffield United, will host the event on May 27.  The fight will be Yorkshireman’s first since a loss to Gennady Golovkin – at Middleweight – in September.

Brook claimed the IBF belt beating Shawn Porter in August 2014 and will be aiming for his fourth title defence.

“I’m so excited about this fight and to make history in my city,” said Brook.

“It’s long been a dream of mine to fight outdoors at Bramall Lane and I’m pleased to do that in the biggest fight in the welterweight division.

“All I’ve ever wanted to do is to give the fans the fights they want and they have it right here on May 27.

“I’m going to show the world that I’m the best welterweight on the planet and I’m going to do it right before my people’s eyes.”
