Brook made three title defenses, before advancing to middleweight, only to drop back down, losing the belt to Errol Spence Jr. The Briton returned to welterweight in 2020 but was beaten by Terence Crawford, his last fight.
After ceding his welterweight title to Spence in 2017, Brook climbed to 69.8kg to become champion of both classes. He went on to beat the likes of Sergey Rabchenko, Michael Zerafa and Mark DeLuca in his new division.
Brook appears to be well on his way to the title race and looks healthier in weight. But after accepting a deal to move back to Crawford, it ended his success midway through.
