Brook said; “I think he has out-done me! It’s a Chris Eubank kind of entrance.”
But he wished his Sheffield mate well ahead of the contest.
“His last fight ended very quickly with a devastating KO. I am glad his confidence is coming back.
“I have heard reports that he is a very hard trainer (at Ryan Rhodes’ gym) and got a bounce in his step.
