Brook vs Senchenko in Early 2012 Possible, Says Hearn

Kell Brook will bid to close on a world title shot when he defends his WBA Inter-continental welterweight title against Rafal Jackiewicz in front of his home town fans.

The undefeated Sheffield fighter will return to the ring against the Pole at the Ponds Forge Arena on 8 October after dominating Lovemore N'dou in his last fight in June.

The 25-year-old will chase his 26th straight win against the former European champion, who has lost just once in his last 24 fights and has never been stopped in 10 years as a professional.

"I can't wait to fight in Sheffield again," said Brook. "The atmosphere at the Lovemore N'dou fight was incredible and I'm sure it's going to be even better at Ponds Forge.

"Jackiewicz is a tough opponent who has held the European belt and challenged for a world title so he will provide a great test for me.

Brook's promoter Eddie Hearn added: "Rafal provides the next step up in terms of tests for Kell and with both fighters knowing they are on the verge of a World title shot, a slip up here can destroy any dreams so you can expect an explosive fight."

"Victory against Jackiewicz could set up an early 2012 shot with WBA Champion Vyacheslav Senchenko."

I like this fight for Brook, this is a legit step for him. I think he beats Senchenko IMO. Maybe his first defense would be against Mike Jones. I really want them to fight each other.
