The main event of the Bramall Lane in Sheffield has met predictions indicating the youngest Errol Spence Jr as the likely winner of the duel against Ibf welterweight champion Kell Brook, fighting in front of his home crowd.
But no one could imagine that the match ended due to injury evident by Kell Brook in his left eye. Problem that has changed the face of the match.
It was a tough match, which until the sixth round saw the local hero clearly in the lead in scoring. In the following rounds all changed and Spence has changed gears. During the tenth round the knockdown to Brook after a series and a final part of the round with a surge of pride by the champion.
In the penultimate round it seems obvious that Brook has a problem: often closes his left eye, touching him with the glove then at 1.47 puts on his knees voluntarily. No longer able to fight on par with Spence who becomes champion for kot!
Brook, now former IBF champion, struggled with big heart and managed to hold off the young rival for the first half of the match, but in the long run the Challenger's strength has been felt.
English has proven to be a great Boxer, defeated but able to offer a great performance up to abandonment. The young American, new IBF world welterweight champion, remains undefeated and is now ready for new exciting challenges!
