Crawford puts his WBO welterweight title on the line against the veteran from England on Saturday
The last time former IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook fought, he wasn’t in need of any crutches to walk or had yet to find himself eligible to collect social security. Yet the rhetoric constantly attached to his name entering Saturday’s return against unbeaten WBO champion Terence Crawford is that Brook will show up to Las Vegas in name only.
Despite riding a three-fight win streak, Brook (39-2, 27 KOs) could only laugh last week during an interview on “Morning Kombat” when presented yet again with questions about whether his fighting prime at age 34 had all but expired.
“It makes me smile,” Brook said. “It makes me smile because I’m beating all of these 24-year-old boys on the track with the heart I have got pushing them. You are going to see how much I have left and, trust me, I have got plenty left. I am ready to rock and roll.”
