Sheffield United have teased boxing fans with a video of preparations at Bramall Lane ahead of Kell Brook's fight with Errol Spence on Saturday.

Brook is looking to fulfill a lifelong dream on Saturday, and realise his uncle's prophecy, when he fights on the Bramall Lane pitch on Saturday.

The IBF welterweight champion will take on the American Errol Spence in defence of his title at Sheffield United for the first time in his career.

Up to 27,000 fans will be present at Bramall Lane and Sheffield United gave fans a teaser of what to expect earlier today.

The club posted a video on Twitter showing a cover on the famous pitch, seats being laid out and construction of the ring itself.

Both Brook and Spence made weight for their world title fight earlier today with the Brit winning an intense face-off.

Brook hit the scales at 146.7 pounds while Spence weighed in at 146.5 pounds.

Brook said: ""I want it with all my heart"I've been coming down here since I was seven.

"My uncle Johnny told me that I would defend my world title here one day. He said, 'You will box and you will defend your world title'.

"It's a dream come true for me, for the city. I've just looked out and I've never seen the pitch like that before, all ready for Saturday night. I want to go out there and put a great show on for everybody.

"I've thought about it quite a lot and what it's going to be like. It's still weird seeing the floor how it is. It's going to be strange for me to see a ring at the Lane and I'm ready for it - ready to entertain, to excite.

"Every time I come to the Lane it brings back those young memories of coming down here. I used to get chucked up in the air when they scored. Every time I come here those memories always come back."

The final few tickets remaining for the fight are still on the sale. Contact the Box Office on 0114 253 7200 (Option 1) to get yours.
