IBF welterweight titlist Kell Brook and Errol Spence exchanged pleasantries for the first time at today’s UK press conference for their May 27 showdown. Brook is returning to welterweight to defend his belt after a moving up two weight classes to face middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin last year. Spence is receiving his first title shot following a sixth round KO of Leonard Bundu last August.
From the assorted trash talk, the most interesting thing to note is Spence’s camp repeatedly telling Brook to make weight. This could be a legitimate concern as Brook outweighed Golovkin on fight night.
