FIRED-up boxer Kell Brook has shrugged off the verbal abuse he has received from Carson Jones by saying: “All I know is he is going to get hammered.”

The pair exchanged more unpleasantries and squared up to each other following yesterday’s official weigh-in at the Winter Gardens.

Brook and Jones meet in an official world title eliminator tonight with the winner moving to within one final step of a shot at the belt.

Sheffield welterweight Brook, who has won all of his 27 fights, is set to be backed by a 6,000-plus crowd at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena.

Brook said: “I have never had this needle before a fight but it has fired me up and I am ready now. I need to show why I deserve to be a champion.”

Handsworth-born actor Sean Bean will carry Brook’s IBF international belt into the ring and the Sheffield United fan is tipping the ‘Special One’ to edge the fight.
