Matthew Hatton: All of The Pressure is on Brook, Not Me

Matthew Hatton admitted he is feeling no pressure ahead of Saturday night's 'War of the Roses' clash with Kell Brook, where he is regarded a glaring underdog.

Manchester vetera Hatton takes on the unbeaten Sheffield fighter in an intriguing welterweight battle at the Steel City's Motorpoint Arena this weekend. Brook (26-0, 18KOs) will start as the heavy favourite with bookmakers pricing Hatton as generously as 15/2.

Hatton (42-5-2, 16KOs) has concealed any irritation at being regarded as the underdog, saying: "All the pressure is on Kell, going into this fight. He's the man fighting at home, he's the favourite to win, and he puts even more pressure on himself by making comments like he's been making, about 'smashing me' etcetera."

He added: "There's no pressure on me. Talk is cheap, and I'll do my talking on Saturday night. He's been making a lot of big noises and he's got to back it up now.

"I don't dislike Kell Brook. He's just in the way of what I want to achieve in the sport in order to provide myself and my family with a better life.

"He'll just be brushed aside on Saturday night. It's not personal.

"I think it'll be a great atmosphere. I've got some support myself in Sheffield so it'll be good and I think the fight will live up to expectations."

On the undercard in South Yorkshire, exciting super-bantamweight prospect Carl Frampton, from Belfast, defends his Commonwealth crown against Prosper Ankrah, while Surrey-based Pole Grzegorz Proksa defends his European middleweight title against Wales' Kerry Hope.
