Prior to the fight, Brook said Spence would be eating chocolate brownies – the nickname the Sheffield man gives his fists
ERROL SPENCE has taunted Kell Brook after his brutal victory against the Sheffield boxer – by eating a chocolate brownie.
Spence battered Brook into an 11th round stoppage last night at Bramall Lane, with the home fighter unable to see properly out of his badly swollen left eye and damaged eye socket.
In the lead up to the fight, Brook said that Spence would be tasting some “clean cut just baked chocolate brownies” during the fight – the nickname he gives his fists.

And as the American boxer made his way to the ring, certain people in the crowd launched the tasty treats at him.
But it was the 27-year-old who had the last laugh, showing that he could cope with everything Brook brought to the ring.
The new IBF welterweight champion celebrated his first world title by sharing a video of him eating a chocolate brownie on social media.
Earlier today, SunSport revealed that Brook has admitted for the first time he can no longer compete at welterweight after he lost his world title to Errol Spence Jr.
Brook confirmed he has suffered a repeat of the broken eye socket he first tasted when he was beaten by Gennady Golovkin last year.
And the Sheffield fighter says he has to move up in weight because it is too hard to trim down and still be able to compete at the highest level at welterweight.

Brook said: “They kept me in hospital till 3am where I had a CT scan on my eye.
“The eye is broken again, the same injury I got against Gennady Golovkin. I need surgery again, and I’m devastated.
“I remember saying the surgeon saying to me if I had gone on another round against Triple G I could have been blinded, I had that going through my mind in the 11th round.
“I ended up thinking I live to fight on another day.
“I think the time is now to move up.
“I have making welterweight since I was a teenager. I am 31 now, I went up to middleweight, put a lot of muscle on it was so hard making weight, coming in to fight young fit guys like Spence, it was very hard.
“I’m still a big guy, I am fit and in great shape, there is no fat left to take off me.
“I need to sit down with the team and see what the best route is.”
