NEARLY 10,000 people should inspire Kell Brook to a career-defining victory tonight, writes Bob Westerdale.

Sheffield Motorpoint Arena will be bursting at the seams for the undefeated welterweight’s collision with Manchester’s Matthew Hatton, aged 30.

“That crowd will be my inspiration,” 25-year-old Brook told The Star.

“I am very proud that we have managed to get that many tickets sold.

“He is rough and rugged and comes forward. But I am quicker and stronger.”

Former Sheffield superstar Naseem Hamed is expected at the event this evening.
