Kell Brook: My Dream Fight? An Errol Spence Rematch!

Former world champion Kell Brook is about two weeks away from his scheduled ring return.

Brook has been inactive since December 2018, when he struggled during a decision win over Michael Zerafa.

He snaps the streak of inactivity on February 8th, when he faces Mark DeLuca at Sheffield Arena.

Back in 2017, Spence traveled over to the UK and stopped Brook in eleven rounds to capture the IBF welterweight crown. Brook suffered a fractured orbital bone in the fight.

Although Brook is now competing at junior middleweight, he would return to 147-pounds to chase down a fight with Spence, who also holds the WBC world title.

Spence is expected to fight again by the summer, after suffering injuries in a car accident last year.

"If I could have my dream fight, it would be an Errol Spence rematch," Brook told Sky Sports. "I could do welterweight. For the right fight, I'll do welterweight. It would have to be a meaningful fight. A world title fight, or a big meaningful fight."

There are a lot of big names at 154. At 33-years-old, Brook wants to prove that he's still a player at the weight class.

"2020 I want to be two-time champion. I've never been as driven, I've never been as focused in my whole career as I am now, because I want to mix it with the best. If I don't have an unbelievable performance, it doesn't count on February 8, I'm not happy," Brook said.

"It's got to be spectacular. You've got to go away and think 'he's back better than ever.' That's what I want people to say. I've seen [DeLuca] live a few times, it is a hard fight," Brook said. "He's tough, he's an ex-Marine, he's obviously into his fitness. He's very determined. He knows this is a chance to make a name. He's going to give it his all."

Brook should have been going for the Spence rematch striaght after he lost - with maybe one 1 warm-up fight. Brook has faded too much now. Although maybe Spence won't be the same after his accident. Who knows?

Brook is not going to be the fighter he once was and 147 seems to be his weight now so that excludes Crawford and Spence, unless he is so deluded that he plans on getting down to 140. His realistic…

Brook can get the rematch after Manny disposes of Spence.
