With so much on the line and the bad blood between these two, it promises to be an enthralling contest, but Brook, who has 27 knockout wins to his name, is not expecting this to go the distance.
“We’ve trained for 12 hard rounds, but we don’t get paid for overtime in this game,” he said. “I’m looking to finish him. I don’t want to go 12 rounds; I want to hurt him, I want to finish him.
