Kell Brook: I'm a Lion, I'm Coming To Take That Title!

By Edward Chaykovsky

British welterweight Kell Brook (32-0) has promised to put on a show when he challenges IBF champion Shawn Porter (32-0) on August 16th at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. Porter is viewed as the favorite, but Brook says the American fans will not be surprised when he puts in a spectacular performance.

"I don't think they'll be surprised, I think that it is what it is. They're going to see what Kell Brook can really do, and, in fact, everyone around the world is going to see why they do call me "The Special One" and you're going to see me at my best," Brook said.

Porter is predicting a dominating performance, yet he expects a tough, strategic fight with the undefeated challenger.

"I think he knows that he's up against someone who's 32-0, who's passionate about actually becoming world champion and he's probably seen the cat-like reaction. I'm a big welterweight and strong and determined. I think that he can maybe see it in my eyes that I'm not coming to lay down, I'm coming to lay it on the line. I'm a lion and I'm coming to take that title. I think he knows that it's going to be like that," Brook said.
