IN light of the horrific attack at the Manchester Arena this week, there will be heightened security at the Kell Brook vs Errol Spence IBF welterweight world title fight at Bramall Lane in Sheffield on Saturday (May 27).
In a statement on social media on Tuesday promoters Matchroom said: “We have today held meetings with Sheffield United Football Club, South Yorkshire Police Force and the British Boxing Board Control to discuss the security operations for Saturday’s event.
“A stringent full body search will be administered on entrance and no bags will be admitted into the stadium. South Yorkshire Police will have an extensive presence at the venue. Please allow extra time to enter the Stadium.”
