Kell Brook bids to pull off one of the biggest shocks and best wins in British boxing history when he challenges pound-for-pound star Terence Crawford.
The American defends his WBO welterweight at The Bubble in the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, with Brook looking to add that to the IBF version he previously owned.
The Sheffield fighter lost that title to Errol Spence Jr, and now at 34 years of age, this could be his last chance for a while at reigning at 147 pounds.
With Crawford cut off from a lot of his compatriots in the division, including Spence Jr, Shawn Porter and Danny Garcia, as well as Filipino Manny Pacquiao, all of whom are affiliated with the PBC.

Brook rejects payday accusation
“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.
“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.”
Khan backing Brook to pull off upset
“I know he’s got his hands full against Terence Crawford. I wish Kell nothing but the best, I wish him the very best, to go out there and put a stop to his reign,” Khan told Seconds Out.
“And he can do that, Kell’s a good fighter and I’ve always respected him. Look, as a Brit, we have to support each other.
“Even though we’ve not looked eye to eye for many years, end of the day I am going to be rooting for him.”
