Today at 5:15 pm ET on Showtime in the U.S., and with a full card starting at 1:00 pm ET on Sky Box Office in the U.K., Kell Brook will put his IBF welterweight title on the line against Errol Spence Jr in what is expected to be one of the biggest fights of 2017, live from Bramall Lane in Sheffield.

Brook (36-1, 25 KO) has never lost at welterweight, dropping his last fight when he moved up to middleweight and took on Gennady Golovkin. Spence (21-0, 18 KO) is considered by many to be the "next big thing" at 147 pounds, or perhaps in boxing overall.

This is a great matchup on paper that we hope will play out that way in reality, pitting two in-prime fighters for a major title in front of what should be a big and vocal crowd in Brook’s hometown.

On the undercard, George Groves (25-3, 18 KO) will face Fedor Chudinov (14-1, 10 KO) for the WBA super middleweight title.

Wil Esco will be here for the live round-by-round updates. Join us!
