Pictured: Kell Brook pays tribute to Manchester victims at workout
Briton Kell Brook made a poignant tribute to the victims of the Manchester Arena attack at Peace Gardens in Sheffield on Wednesday.
With the UK still reeling from the death of 22 victims at the hands of a mass murderer at the widely-used boxing venue, ‘The Special One’ laid flowers at his public workout.
Police have already begun naming the dead following the incident on Monday, which took place at the end of an Ariana Grande concert packed with women and young children.
Prior to Brook’s gesture, arch-rival Amir Khan had appeared on British television condemning the act of immense violence against the community.
Brook will make his fourth IBF Welterweight World Title defense against U.S. star Errol Spence Jr. at Bramall Lane in Sheffield, England this Saturday May 27, live on SHOWTIME (5:15 p.m. ET/2:15 p.m. PT).
Brook (36-1, 25 KOs) and mandatory challenger Spence, (21-0, 18 KOs), clash on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING in one of the biggest fights in the 147-pound division, and the elite pairing are promising to deliver an electric night of action.
Both fighters participated in the public media workout with Brook looking slim and Spence as fast as ever.
Brook said: “There’s no way he can beat me. I’m a man possessed and I have a serious job to do. This is my night to shine.
Spence said: “I’m 100 percent prepared, I’m 100 percent focused, and I’m 100 percent ready to give the fans what they want, which is a real great fight.
Kell Brook v Errol Spence is also live on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK from 6pm on Saturday night
