Brook Eyes Broner: He Pretends To Be What He's Not!

Kell Brook has drawn up a three-man hitlist as he looks to move into boxing superstardom following his emphatic win over Vyacheslav Senchenko.

The unbeaten Sheffield welterweight is eager to square off with either domestic rival Amir Khan, IBF world champion Devon Alexander or American star Adrien Broner in the next six months.

Brook, who has been on the verge of a world title shot for the last year, underlined his credentials with a fourth-round stoppage of Ricky Hatton's conqueror Senchenko in Sheffield on Saturday.

Now he wants to finally nail down a shot at Alexander at the fourth time of asking following three postponed match-ups due to injuries. However, the Yorkshireman would be equally happy with lucrative, high-profile showdowns with long-standing rival Khan or up-and-coming Broner.

"I've arrived," said Brook after demolishing former world champion Senchenko.

"I want Broner. I want Khan. I want the massive fights. I don't want to leave boxing without being in with the top guys in my division. I'm excited about all the possible opponents. We have history with Devon. The Khan talk has been going on a while and this new kid, Broner, who talks trash and pretends to be something he isn't; he can also get it."

Brook is happy to take on any of the three after treading water for the last year and knows his win over Senchenko - who knocked out Hatton when they met a year ago - will boost his profile on the world scene.

"It has to be my best win," he said. "He's a former world champion with a great pedigree. No-one has done that to him. I think I made a statement here. I'm a force to be reckoned with.

"I want to be in those big fights. After that performance I belong at the top level. I am happy now and injury free. I've had some bad times and I hated boxing with my injuries. I couldn't train. The opportunity was there and (because of injury) I was heart broken. I'm on to another chapter now though and I've come back with a bang."

Hatton, whose comeback was ended when Senchenko's body shot convinced him he could not compete at the top level any more, spoke with Brook in the build-up to the fight.

"I'm better than ever," Brook said. "I haven't had a chance to speak to Ricky after the fight but we had a game plan and I listened to what he said before the fight.

"He was one of my idols and I've got a lot of time for him and I did what we planned on doing.

"The fans will love that. I got revenge on the guy who beat Hatton last time round. I'm happy all round. It was a great statement and revenge all rolled into one."

So Hearn has £3 million to play with? So that would mean he can fight anyone not named Mayweather surely? Maybe even Broner would travel for that. I like Brook but I bet it ends up being Malignaggi who is…

Great fight.

Kell is an example of a protected fighter, he is at euro level and hasn't been tested against the best in the division. Carson Jones? Andriy Shevchenko? Please, I think they will go for Malignaggi next. Broners level of opponents…

Kell murders Broner, and i'll bet real money on that one if it happens.
