But Brook is on a mission to boil back down to 147lbs and defend the IBF welterweight belt he treasures.

Local boxers will be scrambling to get on the Pay Per View undercard - fighters like Adam Etches, Gavin McDonnell, David Allen, Kid Galahad could make the cut and help in the same of tickets for the outdoor venue.

Brook is due to return from one of his training camp at Fuerteventura tomorrow, but could head back there to complete his preparations.
