Brook vs Jackiewicz Sheffield Clash is Now Sold Out

Kell Brook’s World title eliminator with Rafal Jackiewicz at the Ponds Forge International Arena in Sheffield on Saturday night is a complete sell-out.

The unbeaten Welterweight star has now sold out back-to-back hometown shows as he continues his march to a World title shot, but fight fans without a ticket can catch the action live on Sky Sports 1 and HD1 from 8.30pm.

Brook recently signed a sponsorship deal with adidas and as his stock continues to rise around the World, so does the pressure on him to perform against the rugged Pole, ranked number five with the IBF and seven with The Ring magazine.  Former undefeated European champ Jackiewicz, 34, fought Jan Zaveck for the IBF World title last September and has never been stopped in 48 fights – so the pressure is on for the 25 year-old to perform and he says he’ll thrive on that on Saturday.

“I’m getting a lot of attention and I love it – I know now that I have to win and I have to look good and I think Jackiewicz is perfect for me,” said Brook. “The World champions at my weight are making excuses or asking for too much money. After I do a job on this guy I will get my chance and the World title fight I deserve. I want to fight for the World title after this fight and I’m happy to fight any of the World titles away from home if I have to.

“Fighting in Sheffield again in front of another sell-out is fantastic and we're moving up levels all the time – better fights in bigger venues,” said Brook. “Lovemore N'dou was the toughest opponent of my career – I'm so glad it went 12 rounds and I'm pleased to have put what I thought was a good performance in for the crowd and Sky – that's what it's all about.

“The N'dou fight was unbelievable. I hadn't boxed in Sheffield since I was 18 and the atmosphere was so special. To come out and face a great name like N'dou was a great experience and now we're going even bigger in Ponds Forge against Jackiewicz, it's going to be even more intense and I'm looking to make a statement and be the first to stop him.”

[QUOTE=IronDanHamza;11255135]You think Brook will stop Jackiewicz or you think he will make it to the end? Rafal is durable but I'm not sure if Brook will get him out of there. What you think?[/QUOTE]Jackie is a shell, and a counterpuncher…
