IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook went face-to-face with his first career world title challenger on Thursday as the Sheffield fighter squared up to Romanian Jo Jo Dan.
The two were mild mannered as they went through the pre-fight rituals for Brook’s return from a stabbing incident in the summer of last year. ‘The Special One’ was laid up in hospital by a male (who is still at large) just weeks after defeating Shawn Porter in the US and is adamant that he is back to 100% ahead of the clash at the Motorpoint Arena.
Dan has worked his way to the mandatory position without catching the eye too much and goes into this weekend’s encounter as a huge underdog.
Tickets are still available for the fight at face value here, whilst Sky Sports will televise the event live in the UK from 7.30pm on Saturday. Showtime will broadcast in the US.
