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.
