World Champion Kell Brook ready to fight after knife attack

World boxing champion Kell Brook feels "like a lion" as he prepares to make the first defence of his IBF welterweight title.

Brook faces Romania's Jo Jo Dan at Sheffield's Motorpoint Arena on 28 March in his first fight since he was stabbed while on holiday in Tenerife.

The 28-year-old says that he lay in hospital "not knowing if I'd ever walk again" after the incident last September.
