Kell Brook is promising fireworks and a big win tomorrow in Sheffield, when the top UK welterweight faces Matthew Hatton in Sheffield in front of 10,000 fans. From the Daily Star:

"I have boxed since I was nine-years-old and there is no way I am losing against Matthew. He is getting it – smashed, and he knows it. I have been a champion since I was a kid and the world is going to see why I am called ‘The Special One’. I hope Matthew is ready because I am going in there to chuck bombs."

I do like Brook vs Hatton as a fight; there wasn't anything better for Brook to do, and obviously the tickets sold shows there's genuine interest. The two are the best welterweights in Britain, probably, and it makes sense as Brook (26-0, 18 KO) tries to work his way into a world title shot.

But while I don't expect the always-game Hatton (42-5-2, 16 KO) to roll over in this one, I do think he might get rolled over. If Brook really comes out to make a big statement, he could truck the veteran and make this look like a mismatch. Brook simply has every single advantage in this fight sans pro experience, and I don't think that's all that big of a deal given the rest of the equation.

Brook vs Hatton is live tomorrow on Sky Sports in the UK at 5 p.m. EDT, and Bad Left Hook will have live round-by-round coverage. Also on the card will be European middleweight champ Grzegorz Proksa against Kerry Hope, and Commonwealth super bantamweight champ Carl Frampton faces Prosper Ankrah.
