Press Conference Quotes

Kell Brook: "I feel great, I feel good. I'm ready to fight, I'd be ready to fight next week. It feels good to be preparing for a fight again. I'm fighting back in Sheffield, we know what we get from the fans - amazing support. It's always an amazing atmosphere in the arena. 

"DeLuca is in front of me, an ex marine, a very fit fighter, very strong, he's going to come over here like it's his World Title fight. The fans are in for a real treat and I can't wait to give them that treat. I can't wait to perform and for the crowd to get behind me and push me on.

“At the beginning of last year it was frustrating because I was trying to get the Terence Crawford fight to happen. I was trying to make a few fights happen but they never materialised. 2019 was frustrating at first but then I was just enjoying my time with my little girls, went travelling about a little bit but then I started getting a bit bored and thought boxing is where I belong and I need to give some more of myself to the fans. I’ve got unfinished business and I want to give all I’ve got.

"I want whoever holds a belt, I want to be a two-time World Champion this year. That’s what I’m aiming for."

Mark DeLuca: “This is the pinnacle of my career at this point, fighting a former World Champion. Kell Brook fought two of boxing’s biggest boogeymen at the time in Errol Spence and Gennadiy Golovkin, he shook up their world. I have admiration and respect for Kell as a champion but in order for me to get to where he has been, I have to beat him in Sheffield.

“I can’t speak for him, but I know he is at the crossroads in his career. I know he wants to get back to where he once was and in order to do that he needs to beat me. I don’t think that he has taken this fight lightly as it’s a make or break fight for both of us.

"I don’t really get into social media or read online comments, but I think he is feeling the pressure ahead of this one. All of his fans are waiting for him to come back and it’s in his hometown. He has to deal with this pressure and show up and perform, he has his hands full!

“This is my chance and this is my time. I feel great. I have been grinding on small cards in small venues to get to this point and I can showcase my skills and what I am all about in this fight.

“This would be like winning a World Title for me. Fighting someone of his calibre means everything to me. I am confident in my preparation and that is what it all comes down to, fighting the best that I can, that’s all I can do."

 

Background

Former IBF Welterweight ruler Kell Brook was last seen outpointing Australia’s Michael Zerafa over a year ago in his hometown and ‘The Special One’, now trained by Dominic Ingle, will be aiming to shake off the ring rust and fire his name back into the mix for a Word Title shot in 2020. He plans to become a two-time world champion either back at super-welter or down at welter if the right fight comes along.

Standing in his way is the USA’s DeLuca, a southpaw hailing from Massachusetts, nicknamed ‘The Bazooka’, who is currently enjoying a three-fight winning streak, picking up the NABA Super-Welterweight title on the undercard of Andrade vs. Kautondokwa in October 2018.
