Kell Brook: I'll Prove I Belong at The Elite, Top Level

Kell Brook has vowed to prove he’s ready for his IBF World Welterweight title shot when he taken on former World champion Vyacheslav Senchenko at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield tomorrow night (October 26), live on Sky Sports.

Brook tackles the Ukrainian conqueror of British boxing hero Ricky Hatton with IBF king Devon Alexander and his challenger Shawn Porter in the winner’s sights. The unbeaten Sheffield star believes he’ll be the one facing the winner of that November 30 bout early in 2014, and cannot wait to put on a big display tomorrow night.

“I'm going to prove on Saturday night why they call me the Special One,” said Brook, who tipped the scales at 10st 6lbs 2oz, with Senchenko scaling 10st 6lbs 13oz. “Last time Senchenko came over here he left a happy man, but I can assure you that this time he will go home a sad man.

“After the first round he is going to realise that he is in with a totally different animal than he has ever been in with before. I've taken myself away from my family home to live next door to my trainer.

“I have got a lot of respect for this guy, last time he came here he upset us all by beating Ricky Hatton. I know he means business because only Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao have done that.

“The respect is there but tomorrow night that goes out of the window and I'm going to let me fists do the talking and prove that I belong in that number one spot at the elite, top level.”

Brook’s clash with Senchenko tops a great line-up of action in Sheffield, with Brian Rose also closing in on a World title as he faces Javier Maciel in a final eliminator for the WBO Light Middleweight strap.

Rising Liverpool star Callum Smith meets Ruben Acosta for the vacant WBC Super Middleweight International title and Olympic Gold medal hero Anthony Joshua MBE faces Paul Butlin in his second professional fight. There’s a welcome return to action for Kal Yafai, the exciting 8-0 bantamweight who boxes for the first time since injuring his bicep in his last outing in March, while popular Sheffield fighters Adam Etches, Scott Jenkins and Sam O’Maison also feature.

[QUOTE=FrankieBruno;13873282]**** Off Brook[/QUOTE] Right...talks just as much as khan but with a s hitty resume

He has a good enough record and resume to maybe deserve a Title shot but it is going to take a long time and a lot of quality wins to deserve to be called elite.

I like Brook but his resume is hard to defend. His best wins are Carson Jones, Matthew Hatton, Hector Saldivia, and Michael Jennings. He is a throwback to the early noughties and British fighter with their long, baseless unbeaten records.…
