Brook is close; sport ROUND-UP.

BOXING: Kell Brook will climb through the ropes at the Sheffield Arena tonight knowing he is a win away from a shot at a world title.

The 26-year-old self-styled 'Special One' takes on Hector Saldivia in what amounts to a semi-final for the IBF welterweight title.

"I'm in the best shape I have ever been in. It's the best I have ever felt and the easiest I have made the weight. I'm feeling strong and I can't wait for Saturday night," Brook said.

Of Saldivia (41-2) he added: "He's no easy pickings. He's no walkover and is going to be very tough."
