Kell Brook is determined to shed his status as British boxing’s forgotten man by dethroning pound-for-pound star Terence Crawford in Las Vegas. Brook, 34, has had just one fight in the last two years and enters his undisputed welterweight title clash as a huge underdog against Crawford, who is unbeaten in 36 professional bouts.
Brook has not lifted a world title since he lost the IBF belt to Gennady Golovkin in 2016.
“I’ve been after this fight for a long time,” said Brook.
“I think every fighter who puts on a pair of gloves want to fight the best in the world, and we can’t argue that Terence is pound-for-pound the best in the world.
“I’m in the best condition of my life and it’s time for me to become world champion again. As I’m getting older I’m getting better.
“I’m controlling my weight and there’s no excuses – I’m mentally and physically in the prime of my life.”
“I’m comfortable going into the ring this weekend just like I am for any other fight.”
