KELL BROOK has the chance to become a two-time world welterweight champion when he comes up against pound-for-pound best Terence Crawford in Las Vegas.
‘Special K’ has been lobbying for a fight with Crawford ever since his old rival Amir Khan fought ‘Bud’ last year.

Crawford had been in talks with his promoters Top Rank this year about securing a Manny Pacquiao fight.
But those negotiations fell through so Crawford decided to give Brook a shot at his WBO world welterweight title.

What the fighters have said
Crawford: “He’s gonna have to – you know what I mean – live up to his words.
“You know, I’m not the one that ever quit in a fight. You know, I can’t say the same for him, though.”
Brook: “I’ve had the bone broken in an eye and not been able to see.
“That’s his opinion. Let’s see if he can make me quit. Let’s see if he can break me, because, you know, I’m willing to die in that ring.
“I’m telling you now, this is sh— or bust for me. Everything’s gone into this fight — everything. It’s not a joke. This is a serious game.”
Crawford is 36-0 and a three-weight world champion[/caption]
