Brook has moved up from Welterweight to Super-Welterweight following his epic contest with Errol Spence Jr at Bramall Lane for his IBF Welterweight title last summer, and now ‘The Special One’ meets Sergey Rabchenko for the WBC Silver Super-Welterweight title, Brook believes it won’t be long until he has the chance to operate at the elite level he belongs.

“I want to be a two-weight World champion,” said Brook, who scaled 10st 13lbs 7oz (153.4-pounds) – three ounces heavier than Rabchenko (153.7-pounds). “I've never been satisfied winning one World title. Even when I was a teenager, I always wanted to move up the weights and win belts as I grow. I want to win a belt at Super-Welterweight at least, I need to get the win and then we can start targeting the champions at 154lbs.

“I just want to be in the biggest fights that everyone is talking about. I love being in fights that grab the attention of the fans, like the Gennady Golovkin and Errol Spence Jr fights did. Proper boxing fans knew that Spence Jr was the next big thing in the States, no one believed that I would fight GGG then come back down to defend against him.

“I love beating the odds and getting in there and performing. The feeling I get from going out there, hearing 'All of the Lights' and doing my thing in front of all of the fans, it's amazing for me, that's my drug and I can't wait to get back in there.

“I've had six months off so there was no way I was going to box at 147 anyway but I think that 154 is really going to suit me. I'm looking forward to having plenty in the tank at the weight and I'm excited to see how I perform at Super-Welterweight with the extra weight.”

Gavin McDonnell looks ill. Looks like a ghost. A few of those lads look bad on the scales there including the chap who is fighting Galahad.

Don’t care for this card at all and probably won’t watch it, but I hope Dave Allen wins and achieve’s a lifelong ambition.
