Errol Spence Jr

Errol Spence Jr. is just 48 hours away from the biggest test of his career when he squares off against IBF Welterweight Champion, Kell Brook, at Bramall Lane in Sheffield.

In their final press conference in Sheffield today, Spence, exuding an air of confidence told fans to expect lots of drama on fight night.

[Brook] said there will be drama and I say, definitely. There will be drama in the fight,” said Spence.

The young contender is not worried about the prospect of facing a hostile crowd on foreign soil either.

“I’m not concerned about his home advantage,” Spence said. “I love all boxing fans, and they don’t know yet, but at the end of the night, they are going to be rooting for me. They’ll be my fans.

“I get motivated from everybody who wants to see me do great. I can’t wait for Saturday night to prove I’m the best welterweight in the world. I am the top dog in this division. I’m the one to watch for.

Spence also hopes to fulfill a lifelong dream on Saturday night and is adamant he has what it takes to become world champion.

“This is a lifelong dream of mine, something I have been dreaming about as a little kid,” said Spence. “I’ve given my blood, sweat, and tears to get here. This is my time, and I will be a world champion Saturday night. I wouldn’t have come here if I had any doubts.”
