Get round by round results and full fight coverage here for the IBF welterweight title clash between Kell Brook and Errol Spence, live from Brammall Lane in Sheffield, England.
It’s a busy weekend for combat sports in Europe. In addition to KSW 39 in Warsaw on Saturday, as well as UFC Stockholm on Sunday, there’s yet another big boxing match taking place at a soccer stadium in the United Kingdom on Saturday. Fans will pack Brammall Lane in Sheffield to see local hero Kell Brook (36-1, 25 KOs) defend his IBF Welterweight (147 lbs) title against American standout Errol Spence Jr. (21-0, 18 KOs).
Brook is a top-class boxer who has defended his title (which he won by beating Shawn Porter) three times, albeit against not very good competition. He bravely went up to middleweight to take on Gennady Golovkin, but got the Josh Koscheck treatment and suffered a fractured orbital in his TKO loss. It’s back down to 147 he goes to take on “The Truth,” who has torn through his opponents, which include Chris Algieri, Chris Van Heerden, and Leonard Bundu. This is definitely the best opponent he’s faced by far, and we’ll learn a lot about the young knockout specialist.
This fight is on Sky Box Office PPV in the UK while Showtime will broadcast the fight live at approximately 5:15 PM ET/2:15 PM PT. Ring walks are expected to occur no later than 6 PM ET. The atmosphere should be superb.
Join us here on Bloody Elbow for live round by round coverage of the fight. We will also provide results for the co-main event between England’s George Groves and Russia’s Fedor Chudinov for the vacant WBA super middleweight (168 lbs) title. That fight will be shown for free on Showtime’s Youtube and Facebook pages, which is pretty cool. Offer your opinion in the comment section!
