Kell Brook vs Sergey Rabchenko Fight Preview
Welcome to our Kell Brook vs Sergey Rabchenko Fight Preview, the fight takes place on Saturday 3rd March 2018 and see’s Brook fight at 154lbs for the first time.
Set to take place at the FlyDSA Arena on March 3 is the bout between Kell Brook and Sergey Rabchenko. Two of Kell Brook’s previous fights have ended with disappointing defeats against Gennady Golovkin and American Errol Spence Jr. Brook has finally decided to compete as a super-welterweight, where he is now set to face an opponent from Belarus who is by no means new to British shores, Sergey Rabchenko.
The 31-year-old Kell Brook was ready to leave boxing after a losing against Errol Spence Jr. He has however made a comeback, and by increasing weight, he believes he is a more dangerous fighter. Having found renewed interest in boxing, he said that he knows that Sergey Rabchenko is a tough fighter to beat, on his comeback he could have chosen easier opponents, he is not trying to cut corners.
In his words “I’m going to be a real handful on March 3. I’m rising again, I’m coming back and can’t wait to be chucking plenty of chocolate brownies and getting up in a tear”
Kell To Rise Again
After losing to Errol Spence Jr, Brook had to relinquish his hold on the IBF belt. He said “it hurt me mentally, very bad. It was the toughest time of my whole life actually. It was a bad routine. I didn’t want to get out of bed, it was hard to get through every day. But I’ve overcome that and decided I need boxing.”
Brook has had the chance to spur with Rabchenko. He knows his fighting style, and Rabchenko is by no means an easy pick. He is a talented fighter and knows how to use the ring to his advantage.
Even promoter Eddie Hearn says that this is going to be a tough one for Kell Brook. He is however happy that kell is back to boxing. If Brook won against Sergey, he could be set up to face Amir Khan.
Sergey Rabchenko is ranked number 7 according to the WBC rankings. He is the former European title holder. The Belarusian, however, is not planning on stepping out of that ring with a loss. He too has a lot to gain from winning the match as it puts him in a position to compete for the World title.
Rabchenko certainly doesn’t have to deal with the psychology of having to prove himself in this match as his previous matches ended in a win.
