Brook set for IBF welterweight title bout in less than two’s week time…
Former boxing star Ricky Hatton is confident that Kell Brook can defeat Shawn Porter when the pair meet in California on August 16.
While injury setbacks have prevented Brook from fighting for a world title in years previous, the Sheffield-born fighter is on the cusp of the biggest night of his career thus far as he takes on the unbeaten Porter at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.
Brook heads into the bout off the back of four consecutive knockout wins, yet the discussion continues to centre around whether or not he will be able to handle Porter’s bullish tactics and power.
Nevertheless, Hatton is confident that Brook will be crowned the new champion as he “ticks every box” given his own power and boxing ability despite the threat posed by Porter, and in the video below he explains how the fight against Carson Jones will stand him in good stead ahead of this encounter:
