Coverage of tonight’s fight kicks off at 7.30pm live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Action, with the bout set to start at 10pm.
Kell Brook makes his eagerly-awaited return to the ring tonight as he faces Sergey Rabchenko.
Brook makes his super-welterweight debut against the Belarusian at the FlyDSA Arena in Sheffield tonight, and is aiming to become a two-weight world champion.
31-year-old Brook, the former IBF welterweight holder, is aiming to bounce back from back-to-back defeats to Gennady Golovkin and Errol Spence Jr.
However the so-called ‘The Special One’ faces a tough task against former European title-holder Rabchenko, who hold a 29-2 career record.
