Welterweight Kell Brook KO's Vyacheslav Senchenko to set up world title shot

London, Oct 27 (ANI): English professional boxer Kell Brook has given his world title shot a massive boost, with a fourth round stoppage win over Ricky Hatton's conqueror Vyacheslav Senchenko.

According to the Mirror, Brook now hopes to secure a fight with the winner of Alexander's November 30 defence against Shawn Porter after an exciting performance which saw him knock Senchenko down twice but get hurt himself too, at the Motorpoint Arena in his hometown of Sheffield.

Brook's only other fight in 2013 was a comfortable win over Carson Jones in July, the report said.

He found himself needing to win this IBF title eliminator against Senchenko despite having previously been made mandatory challenger for the belt, the report added. (ANI)
