Jo Jo Dan: 'Kell Brook will not surprise me'

Jo Jo Dan believes that IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook will be unable to surprise him when they meet in Sheffield later this month.

Jo Jo Dan has claimed that Kell Brook will not be able to spring any surprises when they meet for the IBF welterweight title later this month.

The Romanian is fighting for a world title for the first time in his career, and despite admitting that he was impressed by Brook's performance against former champion Shawn Porter last summer, he is confident of having too much for the Brit to handle in Sheffield.

"Kell has not fought anyone like me," the 33-year-old told reporters. "I believe in myself and I don't think he can bring anything I can't deal with on fight night.

I'm on schedule with my work and I will be in top shape on March 28. I saw his last fight where he won the world title and it was a great performance. But I just let my team study him in depth and come up with a winning strategy.

"I have waited a long time to get a world title shot so I am determined to take advantage of this opportunity. My prediction for the fight is simple - Jo Jo Dan to become the new IBF welterweight world champion."

Dan has lost just two of his 36 professional bouts, while Brook is unbeaten in 33 fights.
