It is almost here... so let Ringside start the countdown with a Kell Brook Special.

The Special One takes on the IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter over in California, live on Sky Sports 1, this weekend.

Brook is a regular guest on the magazine show and after two world-title challenges had fallen through we all wondered whether the Sheffield star would ever get a tilt at the top.

Well it is here at last and to set the scene as the big moment draws closer and closer, we have been talking to the men that really matter... and more!

Here is who you will hear from...

KELL BROOK - Of course we get the inside track as he opens up to Wincobank friend and a former world champion himself, our own Johnny Nelson.

DOMINIC INGLE - The man behind it all is the trainer and we rarely hear from this one, so who better to give us a real insight into what we can expect - and maybe what he has got planned!

EDDIE HEARN - The promoter has had to pick up the pieces when the two title shots fell through and this time he admits there is no second chance for Kell as he gives a frank assessment.

MATTHEW HATTON - They fought in the ring but there is no bad blood between them, especially when the former foe backs the challenger to become Britain's newest world champion.

You can catch the Kell Brook Special at 6.00pm, Thursday, Sky Sports 1 (Channel 402) and after the show, Ringside Extra has one of the early Sheffield stars giving his take on it all. Follow us on Twitter @SkySportsBoxing #Ringside
