Brook Promises: I'm Going To Chuck Bombs at Hatton!

By Steve Lillis, courtesy of The Daily Star

KELL BROOK is ready to have a smashing time and poor Matthew Hatton is the victim he’s preparing to break.

The unbeaten star meets Ricky Hatton’s younger brother in a twelve round welterweight clash in his hometown at Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield tomorrow night.

Brook, 25, said: “I have boxed since I was nine-years-old and there is no way I am losing against Matthew. He is getting it – smashed, and he knows it. I have been a champion since I was a kid and the world is going to see why I am called ‘The Special One’. I hope Matthew is ready because I am going in there to chuck bombs.”

The first British super-fight of 2012 has captured the public’s imagination and promoter Eddie Hearn has shifted more than 9,500 tickets so far.

Both men will be risking meaningless international titles, but the fight means a lot more with a world-title shot awaiting the winner.

Hearn said: “We haven’t even hyped this fight and there has been no animosity, but once the bell rings these two want to do damage to each other.

“Whoever loses it is the end of the road as far as world title shots go. That is the harsh reality of boxing and why people are afraid to make fights like this.

“Nobody is under-estimating Matthew but if Kell is as incredible as we think he is he’ll put in an incredible performance.

“He is going to walk out in front of his fans and it is a big assignment to perform under that pressure, but he is called ‘The Special One’ for a reason.”

With Hearn going into overdrive about Brook’s future the pressure is on when he faces Hatton, who will be having his 50th professional bout.

Hatton’s trainer Bob Shannon said: “We know we are coming as the underdogs and that is why we have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

“Kell is a good fighter, but how good is he? The pressure is all on Kell and not Matthew.”

[QUOTE=BIGPOPPAPUMP;ne.com/?m=show&id=50682]Click Here To Read More[/URL]][/QUOTE] Firstly, a superfight is between legends of the ring. This matchup is far removed from this. Secondly, the comment about either fighters world title ambitions being seriously impaired is having a laugh or knows little…

Brook might wanna be careful and not tire himself out. Remember how hard Canelo was hitting Hatton and he wouldn't budge?

Brook is probably the best British active fighter.
