Kell Brook makes bold prediction ahead of Terence Crawford showdown

Brook challenges Crawford this weekend for the WBO welterweight championship.

Kell Brook has predicted he will become a two-time welterweight world champion this weekend.

The former IBF titlist - who lost his title to Errol Spence Jr. and came up short against Gennadiy Golovkin at middleweight - will face Terence Crawford this weekend.

"Special K" has the chance to do something arch-rival Amir Khan couldn't do - beat Crawford, who is ranked as the second best pound-for-pound fighter in Boxing365's rankings.

Brook, who is without Dominic Ingle and former promoter Eddie Hearn - is promising an unforgettable performance.

Brook KO's DeLuca!

"I stop him, or he quits on the stool. I'm fully focused. I've never been ready for a fight like this before. Looking forward to whatever Terence brings because I can match him. I'm ready for a war.

"I've been here before. I've been on this stage. I've been in there with pound-for-pound top fighters like Golovkin and Errol Spence. I took the title away from Shawn Porter in America. I know what it takes to be champion.

"He's going to have a rude awakening, I'll tell you that. He's going to have a rude awakening Saturday night when he gets in there.

"I hope he's {overlooking me}. I hope he is because I'm coming with force. Trust me." "I'm in a great, great place in my mind, and my weight is fantastic for this fight. Forget the weight. The weight's made.

"I think {winning this fight} would rank above Shawn Porter given everything I've been through, everyone writing me off. I think you gotta put it up there because this is the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world. You've gotta put him as number one. Nobody has done that in history from Britain, and I'm glad that all the fans will be able to see it on Premier Sports. They're going to stay up and enjoy me become two-time world champion.

"My body clock has adjusted to the Vegas time now, so everything is on point. The sleeping, my body clock is there. Everything's there that's needed to win this fight."
