Errol Spence Jr is looking to win the IBF welterweight title in grand style and believes winning at Bramall Lane in front of 30,000 fans is the way to go.
The mandatory challenger, who is unbeaten is going to be fighting Brook in Britain, with the boxer’s home ground of Sheffield United a proposed venue for the fight expected to happen May 27.
Spence Jr believes going to the champion’s home ground is what true fighters do and it is a part of the job.
Spence Jr said: “I’m old school. I don’t care where I fight. I’ve got to do what Kell did when he came to America to beat Shawn Porter for the title and that is what I plan on doing.
“Fighting in front of 30,000 people will be electrifying and a great event.
“I don’t think Kell’s fought anyone like me before. I’m faster and hit harder than other welterweights he has faced.
“I believe I may have Kell’s number, great champion that he is.
“I want everyone in the UK to make sure they come to the fight or watch it on TV because it’s two fighters in their prime, so it’s going to be exciting. It is going to be a war.”
Spence Jr says speculation about Brook’s weight is not an issue for him and has shown great respect to the Sheffield man.
“The truth about the GGG fight was a true 160-pounder beat a 147-pounder,” he added. “Kell showed a lot of heart and came back a little bit before being overrun.
“I don’t know if he has made a mistake coming back down to welterweight or not. That would be up to his camp. A lot of fighters walk around well above their weight. I walk around at 170lbs.
“I do believe Kell will bring out the best in me. So far I haven’t faced anyone who can push me enough for me to show my true skills.
“I might be the underdog but it’s understandable. He’s the champ and I don’t take anything from him. But I’m 100 per cent focused and confident.”
