Brook loses IBF welterweight title to Spence Jr

Errol Spence Jnr has beaten Kell Brook to win the IBF welterweight title at Bramall Lane.

Brook's bout with Golovkin was one of boxing's highlights of the previous year as both fighters earned widespread acclaim for the spectacle. Brook's corner threw in the towel in the fifth round when it became apparent that he didn't have much of a shot of defeating Golovkin at 160 pounds.

Errol Spence is all but a few hours away from potentially realizing his dream against Kell Brook by becoming world champion.

The 147lb-limit, which 31-year-old Brook was inside at Friday's weigh-in, has therefore been even more challenging thanks to a gruelling 12-week camp in Fuerteventura.

Spence Jr, who weighed in at 146lb 5oz and also looked in excellent condition, will cause Brook problems, particularly given he is a southpaw.

"He's one hell of a contender, but I will draw energy from the Bramall Lane crowd".

After the victory, Spence said: 'It was a tricky fight but I proved tonight that I have a chin and true grit.

"I've put myself through it", he said of his preparations to face Spence.

Brook is a 2-1 underdog, according to most betting sites.

On a stacked undercard, George Groves has his fourth chance at a world title, fighting tough Russian Fedor Chudinov for the vacant WBA super-middleweight crown.

The main event should begin at about 5:30 p.m.
