Up in Sheffield, on Saturday night, Kell Brook faces, quite possibly, the pivotal bout of his career.

Having seen a couple of chances to fight Devon Alexander disappear, courtesy of injury, Brook knows that if he can beat his opponent, on Saturday night, Vyacheslav Senchenko he?ll once again become the mandatory challenger for the IBF version of the world title.

Senchenko is well known on these shores as being the fighter who put Ricky Hatton, one of our most-loved fighters, into permanent retirement.

But at thirty-six years of age, you have to wonder whether his best years are long gone and that Brook should ease to a win.

However, Brook wants to do it in some style an din the build-up to the fight has remarked to the media,

?Senchenko broke a lot of hearts that night in Manchester when he stopped Ricky. Now I will be breaking his. Nothing would please me more than becoming the first boxer to stop Senchenko. I feel revitalized.?

?It was bordering on tragic that night. The way it all ended for Ricky was very sad ? now it will be Senchenko?s turn to be sad.?


I?m hoping that Brook can turn those words into reality and that this time he finally does get a crack at the world title; surely his luck has to take a turn for the good some time in the very near future!
