The American DeLuca showed a lot of courage in taking a lot of heavy shots from his opponent. His nose was bloodied, and both eyes were badly bruised by the 6th round
Brook began to break DeLuca down by the third round, and he had him on the defensive.
“I felt very fit, DeLuca is a very smart fighter and had never been beat. It was a clinical finish,” said Brook after the fight. “You always question yourself but I’m a new kid and on it, constantly in the gym. 2020 is the year that I become world champion again.
