Kell Brook is underestimating Diego Chaves, says Tim Bradley

Kell Brook is underestimating Diego Chaves, says Tim Bradley

Kell Brook will make his third defence of his IBF Welterweight Belt in his hometown of Sheffield in a Night of Championship Boxing on Saturday 24th October against Argentinian Diego Chaves.

"Chaves is a rough, tough, durable fighter who is very dangerous,” said Brook, adding: “I've seen some of Chaves' quotes and it's interesting to see he thinks he can walk me down and over-run me. I don't think some fighters realize how big I am and how sharp and accurate I punch and I'm looking to make a major statement against him. If he does what he promises it's going to be one hell of a fight."

But Tim Bradley says that Kell Brook is underestimating Chaves.

Kell Brook does not mind:

“I'm so excited about boxing in my home town of Sheffield again. London last time out was a great experience fighting in front of nearly 20,000 but I’m excited to be back there – it is my home. I’m looking to excite like I always do and light up the Motorpoint Arena on October 24. He’s bringing something new to the table. He’s coming off a draw to Tim Bradley, was ahead on the cards against Brandon Rios until he was disqualified and gave Keith Thurman a solid fight so we know what level he has mixed at and how good he is."

Let us see what happens on October 24th.
