Kell Brook-Vyacheslev Senchenko Confirmed For Oct. 26th in Sheffield

By James Slater

It has been confirmed that unbeaten welterweight contender Kell Brook will face former WBA 147-pound champ Vyacheslav Senchenko at The Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield on October 26th. Brook, 30-0(20) is currently in Spain and he today told Sky Sports that he “can’t wait” to get back in training against a good fighter who plans to “come over and prove a point.”

The 33-1(22) Senchenko is 36-years-old and he is coming off a November stoppage of Manchester warrior Ricky Hatton. Brook says he cannot wait to box in front of his fans in Sheffield. “I’m knocking on the door [to a world title fight] now and if I do a great job on Senchenko I’m next in line,” Brook said today.

Eddie Hearn, the head of Matchroom, says he is planning a “special show” for Sheffield on October 26th.

“It’s without a doubt his sternest test yet and Senchenko brings credibility as a former world title holder and mass appeal after his KO win over Ricky Hatton.

According to a report on Sky News, Brook, if victorious in October, will be first in line to face the winner of the still-to-be-signed but expected Devon Alexander-Amir Khan clash in the fall.
