Brook facing more surgery after suffering broken eye socket in title loss

The almost lifelong resident of Desoto, Texas, worked behind a strong jab out of his southpaw stance, a weapon that would swell Brook's left eye over the course of the fight.

Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Brook said: "They kept me in until about 3am". The onslaught continued in round 10 as Spence once again forced Brook to the ropes where he unleashed furious combinations that forced Brook to his knees with 2:26 remaining in the round.

It was hell for Kell - but he'd given it his all, for the fans.

The Special One's other eye resulted in his defeat to Golovkin, and after his fight against Soence Jr, he was inflicted with the same injury.

Brook's promoter Eddie Hearn later revealed the 31-year-old had suffered the same type of injury to the opposite eye that he had sustained against Golovkin. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Richard Sellers/PA Wire. It was a much-needed win for his trainer, Shane McGuigan, who was on the losing side in recent fights involving Carl Frampton and David Haye.

"Brook went to America to take the title from an American, like a true champion".

Errol Spence is EVENS to come to the United Kingdom and win the belt, while a draw is 20/1. "This American is going to be a world superstar".

However, in the tenth round Spence Jr caught Brook with a series shots, eventually leading to a stoppage in the following round - and only the second defeat of Brook's career, in front of a hometown crown at Sheffield's Bramall Lane.

"Kell now needs a break with his partner and kids".

Spence Jr landed two crisp counter left hands in the seventh and despite moments of success from Brook, the unbeaten American took over and started to get into a clinical rhythm.

"If he'd have lost on points he'd be here saying, "I'm moving up in weight and win world titles". And even though one can never guarantee a good fight on paper plays out to its expectations, only good comes when you consistently place your best foot forward in terms of matchmaking and promotion.

"Both Kell and Khan aren't getting any younger and if the fight doesn't happen soon, it never will", said Johnny. Welshman Cordina moved to 3-0 as a professional, and Fowler - cousin of former England and Liverpool footballer Robbie Fowler, and victor of a gold medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, looked impressive against Arturs Geikins, dropping him twice for a first round victory.

"Make no mistake, Kell is not done yet". Yet Brook claimed his determined nature was the reason he ignored advice from those close to him urging him up to move up a class, with a desire to hang on to his belt overriding anything else. Nothing to be ashamed of. Brook will be back.

"I'm devastated. I knew from round seven that the eye had gone and progressively as the rounds went on".
