We’ve already been treated to an incredible year of boxing. But the great thing for fans is that we’re not even halfway through 2017 yet. And in action this weekend is Sheffield’s Kell Brook, who’ll face Errol Spence Jr.
So with the odds giving Spence Jr the edge we thought we’d check out what Twitter had to say on this hotly anticipated clash. And we begin with a word from the fighters themselves…
Brook is certainly confident of getting the job done, and he’ll have the backing of his hometown…

Here’s what light welterweight American boxer Jamel Herring had to say…
@YDKSAB_ @KD4PRESIDENT @SHOsports @ShowtimeBoxing @SpecialKBrook @ErrolSpenceJr @MatchroomBoxing @EddieHearn This fight in my opinion will be a classic. Both men have a lot of skill and determination heading into this one.

That may be the case, but it hasn’t stopped our traders making him favourite to win!
Never understood this notion that Spence is obviously superior to Brook. This is a huge leap for Spence, as good as he is. #BrookSpence

It has to be said, Special K did win a lot of fans over after stepping in the ring with Gennady Golovkin…

It’s 10/3 for him to win by KO, TKO or Disqualification. Now that would be a shock!
Cant see how Kell Brook is being wrote off for Saturday, think he’s gonna shock a few people #BrookSpence
