Kevin Bizier to bring the heat in Kell Brook clash
Kevin Bizier plans to pile the pressure on Britain’s Kell Brook when he challenges for the IBF welterweight title in Sheffield, England, on March 26.
The 31-year-old Bizier (25-2, 17 KOs) hails from Quebec, Canada, and is Brook’s mandatory challenger. He has never been stopped in an eight-year professional career and is determined to make a real impression on away soil.
“I’m going to give 100 percent on March 26,” said Bizier. “I will give everything in the ring for this fight. I don’t want to regret anything and I don’t want to leave that ring knowing I didn’t give it all when fighting for a world title.
“To win rounds and spoil Brook’s party, I’ll have to apply constant pressure and get in his face. I’ve worked a lot on my inside work as I cannot stay at the end of his jab. Brook is a big hitter who manages distance well. I’ll have to get in the pocket because boxing inside will give me a better chance.
Bizier continued, “I know the fans are going to scream for him, but I will block that out. If Brook gets carried away by the emotion of the crowd, it could play into my hands. I intend to give value for money.”
