Boxing: Brook closer to world title shot
Monday 10 October 2011
The Sheffield welterweight Kell Brook took a significant step towards a world title shot in the new year with a comprehensive stoppage of Poland's Rafal Jackiewicz on Saturday night.
Although Brook's WBA Inter-Continental title was on the line against Jackiewicz, the fight was more importantly an eliminator for a shot at the WBA champion Viacheslav Senchenko.
Brook, who now boasts a perfect record of 25 wins, outclassed Jackiewicz from the first bell and referee Howard Foster stepped in after six rounds.
As Amir Khan prepares to step up to 147lbs in 2012, an all-British clash with Brook has now emerged as a real possibility.
