Kell Brook vs. Mark DeLuca: Who will ‘come out on top’ in Sheffield?

Published

on

Kell Brook will make his return to the ring on Saturday night when he takes on American boxer Mark DeLuca.

The 154-pounders will come together at the FlyDSA Arena in Sheffield in a 12-round non-title super-welterweight bout.

It looks set to be an interesting clash, particularly given the fact that DeLuca is relatively unknown in terms of British boxing. He boasts a 24-3 record, with 17 KOs. Brook meanwhile has a 38-2 record with 26 KOs.

Brook has undoubtedly become the forgotten man of boxing, last fighting Australian Michael Zerafa in December 2018. Brook narrowly came out on top in a points win, but will be looking for a better performance in front of his home fans on Saturday.

The Sheffield fighter had his best career performance over five years ago. That was when he beat Shawn Porter in America to secure the IBF welterweight world title.

But it’s almost been all downhill from there. Subsequent losses to Gennady Golovkin and Errol Spence Jr followed. Brook also fractured both his eye sockets in what has been a hugely frustrating spell.

Saturday’s fight in Sheffield, therefore, represents the perfect chance for Brook to turn his fortunes around. A win could set up an intriguing all-British affair with Amir Khan.

But a loss will signal his retirement. 

The 33-year-old is currently 1/16 to get his career back on track with a win.

His opponent DeLuca is available at 10/1. And it’s currently 33/1 for a draw between the pair.

It’s 10/11 for the match to last for 7.5 rounds or more, and 5/6 for it to end before 7.5 rounds. And it’s currently 5/2 for the fight to go the distance, and 4/11 for it to end prematurely.

Kell Brook to win the fight by KO, TKO or disqualification is available at 4/9. And for Brook to be victorious by decision or technical decision is currently 11/4.

For Mark DeLuca to secure the win by KO, TKO or disqualification has been given odds of 16/1. And it’s 25/1 for the American to come out on top by decision or technical decision.

On the undercard is Terri Harper against Eva Wahlstrom, and Kid Galahad versus Claudio Marrero. 

Harper is favourite to win the latter match at 1/5, with Wahlstrom currently 9/2. And Galahad is available at 3/10 to secure victory, with Marrero available at 11/4.
