Hey folks. I am Kevin Iole. And we are only a few days away from the next title defense of WBO Welterweight Champion, Terence Crawford. He has a tough fight lined up. He is going up against Kell Brook, a guy who’s fought a lot of tough guys. Kell is joining me now. You can catch that fight on ESPN in the United States and on Premier Sports in the UK. Kell, how are you doing right now?
You know, I mean, you have been no stranger to big fights. You know, you fought Gennady Golovkin. You fought Errol Spence. You fought Shawn Porter, a lot of tough guys. When you look at Terence Crawford, some people have him as the pound for pound best fighter in the world. Other people, like myself, have him second or a little bit lower. But, obviously, he’s one of the best. How does he compare to those guys that you’ve fought before, those elite guys that you’ve been in the ring with?
I think he’s amongst them. He’s, definitely, amongst them, yeah, if not the top you know, the top. But he he’s not he’s not ever he’s not ever been he’s not he’s not he’s not fought anybody yet for me. He’s not fought anyone with my pedigree. I don’t believe that he’s boxed anyone the size of me, and the determination, and the power. I think he’s boxed smaller guys. We’re forgetting that he came from lightweight all up to welterweight.
all I’ve been living and breathing these last three or four months is Terence Crawford. So, you know, I’m ready for this fight. I’m more than ready for this fight. And these doubters out there who haven’t got me as the favorite, you know, they’re the ones that motivate me in this fight. You know, because I know I know what’s in me. I know what’s in my heart, and in there, and what I can do. And I believe that I’mma go out there and I’mma shock the world again.
