Sheffield’s Kell Brook will put on a sensational display when he takes on Michael Zerafa on Saturday night, according to trainer John Fewkes.

‘The Special One’ is back in action for the first time since March as he looks to end the year on a high.

Brook beat Siarhei Rabchanka thanks to a stunning knockout at the Sheffield Arena and now must get past Zerafa at the same venue.

A 2019 showdown with Amir Khan is potentially on the cards although Brook is hoping to secure any big fight as he attempts to win another world title.

Fewkes has stepped in to train Brook due to the absence of Dominic Ingle and he is adamant his fighter is in perfect shape to get the job done.

He told Sky Sports’ Toe 2 Toe Podcast: “It was a surprise when Kell rang me to ask if I would I be interested in going out and working with him, but I jumped at the chance and I can’t believe how well it has gone – it’s worked brilliantly and is a perfect fit.

“How close he is to the weight already, how much he is pushing himself, how he is getting up so early to go gym, he’s trained hard and made my job easy. Everyone that knows Kell has said how happy he is.

“People will see the best Kell Brook that they’ve seen for a long time and, in the future, he’ll be better than ever.

“Zerafa is a banana skin, he’s top 10 and this is his world title fight, a win changes his entire life. We have to win and look good doing so, the big fights are out the window if not. All the world will be watching, we have to put on a show.”

Brook is the overwhelming favourite for the contest and is priced at 12.00 to win in the second round.
