Michael Zerafa feels he is being overlooked by Kell Brook and plans to take advantage of that fact in their super-welterweight showdown at the FlyDSA Arena in Sheffield.
Australia’s Zerafa, is the former Commonwealth Super-Welterweight Champion, with just two losses on his record, including a stoppage loss to former WBO Middleweight ruler Peter Quillin in 2015.
While Zerafa recognises Brook is a step-up in the level of opponent he has faced of late, he is confident he is prepared for whatever the Sheffield man has to offer.
“I’m really up for this fight, I’m in the best condition of my life,” said Zerafa. “Halfway through the first round Brook and his team will realise they’ve underestimated me.
“I’ve got two losses on my record but that was years ago. I was a kid back then and very inexperienced. Now I’m a more complete fighter, more power, more speed & more boxing IQ.
“I respect Kell Brook, he’s a great fighter and he’s been at a higher level than me for longer, but that’s exactly why he’s looking past me. I’m going to make a lot of people eat their words.
“This is the biggest opportunity of my career, I’m taking it with both hands and I’m definitely going to put on a show in Sheffield. I’m going into this fight with absolutely nothing to lose.”
