BROOK vs. SPENCE JR.live Boxing: Watch Online Game, how to watch Online Live Stream, TV Schedule, Online TV Channel, Odds, Game Time and more info. This Saturday May 27, Showtime presents their latest international event as Kell Brook (36-1; 25 KO) faces Errol Spence, Jr. (21-0; 18 KO) in a 147 pound Welterweight title fight.
Brook vs. Spence continues a series of terrific, well-booked fights taking place right now – many of them coming out of the UK. Brook won the title by defeating Shawn Porter in 2014. His lone career loss came last year when he showed an incredible willingness to fight by moving up two divisions to take on Middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin. Spence is a former Olympian who is undefeated as a professional and has been heralded as one of the sport’s next big things. He’s faced increasingly tough competition as he has moved up the ranks, and he takes his biggest step up here in a great, pick ‘em fight.
This fight is taking place in Sheffield, England, and while it is part of a larger card in the UK, for the Showtime broadcast, it will be just a one fight card.

Kell Brook vs. Errol Spence, Jr.
There have been a few pundits (such as Yours Truly) whom, for the past couple of years, believed Brook was the world’s best 147-pounder, post-Floyd Mayweather Jr./Manny Pacquiao. “Special K” is a solid, all-around boxer/puncher who hasn’t quite resonated with the British base for one reason or the other. Back in the summer of 2014, he captured the IBF belt by traveling overseas to the States and controlling the hard-charging Shawn Porter over 12 rounds at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.
But instead of building on the momentum of his title-winning effort, Brook was taken on the path of least resistance by Matchroom Boxing’s Eddie Hearn, who paired him with the trio of JoJo Dan, Frankie Gavin and Kevin Bizier, who he summarily blew out. That said, while he padded his record, and most likely his bank account, it didn’t do much for his profile. While there has certainly been a British boxing renaissance in recent years, despite being a major beltholder, Brook was basically a beige spot on a beige wall, for the most part.
