Kell Brook v Errol Spence Jr Betting Tips Explained

The big fights in Britain keep on coming with Kell Brook set to return to the welterweight division to defend his IBF title for the fourth time, and ‘The Special One’ is not taking it easy in his first fight back after agreeing to take on the highly-rated Errol Spence Jr.

Spence Jr arrives in England with the reputation of being one of the United States’ most promising fighters, having compiled a perfect 21-0 record since moving into the professional ranks following the 2012 Olympic Games. The mandatory challenger to Brook’s crown, the 27-year-old is ranked among the top 10 welterweight fighters on the planet by both The Ring magazine and the respected BoxRec website, and his most recent outing – against Leonard Bundu last August – was watched by the largest television audience the United States has seen in over 10 years. It is fair to say that Spence Jr comes into the fight with a lot of hype – but will he live up to it against Brook?

The champion, of course, is returning to action after several months on the sidelines due to the injury he suffered in last September’s defeat to Gennady Golovkin. Brook had bravely moved up to the middleweight division to take the fight with the man many consider to be the pound-for-pound number one, and he gave ‘GGG’ all he could handle before a damaged eye socket forced his trainer to throw in the title.

Golovkin claimed afterwards that Brook had never really troubled him, but you only have to watch the fight back to know that was not the case. The Sheffield fighter’s performance provided the first real evidence that the dominant middleweight champion was not invincible, and it also earned the welterweight champion a great deal of praise and respect for taking a fight that many others have seemingly shied away from.

Brook will now return to action in a more familiar weight class and despite being the world champion, the bookmakers believe ‘The Special One’ is taking a major risk because they have priced up Spence Jr as the odds-on favourite for the showdown at Bramall Lane. I believe the bookmakers have got it wrong though, so I suggest backing Brook to return to winning ways in front of his hometown crowd.

While Spence Jr arrives with a lot of hype, there are virtually no top-level fighters on his list of victims aside from Chris Algieri. He is undoubtedly a very talented and slick fighter, but Brook is also an excellent boxer having outsmarted Shawn Porter on his way to the IBF title almost three years ago, and he is big welterweight that has stopped almost 70% of his opponents so far. The 31-year-old has shown his fighting spirit too by overcoming an early knockdown to trade blows with Golovkin – an absolute wrecking ball – at a weight that favoured his opponent more.  With all of this in mind I see no reason to doubt the criminally under-rated champion here.
