Brook defeated one of America's top welterweights in Shawn Porter on US soil to claim the IBF belt in 2014, while he lost his unbeaten record in a brave battle with middleweight No 1 Gennady Golovkin last September.
But Spence Jr believes he is a cut above all of Brook's past opponents and expects to outshine the Sheffield man in front of his large support at Bramall Lane.
"I'm going to be a very tough opponent," Spence Jr told Sky Sports. "I'm coming out with the win, so I feel like I'm going to be his best opponent.
"The venue I hear is 30,000 and the fans are lively, they are hardcore boxing fans, and I feel like it's going to be a great fight, great environment, and I can't wait to be under those bright lights."
Spence Jr resisted the opportunity to send a warning to Brook, simply stating that he is ready to fulfil a long-term ambition.
"This is something I have been fighting for my whole life and a lifelong dream of mine," said the 27-year-old, who is nicknamed 'The Truth.' "I won't let it slip.
