Kell Brook loses IBF world welterweight title to Errol Spence Jr

Kell Brook was stopped by Errol Spence Jr as he lost the IBF world welterweight title in dramatic fashion at Bramall Lane.

Brook, who had surgery on a broken right eye socket eight months ago, never fully recovered from his left eye swelling midway through the bout.

The Sheffield fighter was put down in the 10th when Spence ruthlessly went to work on the eye but, roared on by home support, rallied bravely.

He would last just one more round, though, as referee Howard Foster ended the contest despite Brook rising on a nine count after taking a knee.
