Westerdale, explaining that Bizier will be hit by what Brook terms his “chocolate brownie”, says the fight “will all be over by round six”.

He said: “I don't think it'll go anything like the distance. I've seen [Bizier] on YouTube, dancing round, sparring, and he doesn't look anything like the real deal”.

“Kell's not been taxed since he beat Shawn Porter. I don't think he'll be taxed in Sheffield arena.”

Speaking about the action on the undercard, where South Yorkshire fighter Adam Etches is fighting, Westerdale said Etches is a “potent, explosive boxer” and an “outstanding talent”.
