Following a frustrating injury and missing out on a title shot, Kell Brook rocked the Motorpoint Arena with a stunning victory which once again puts him in the hot spot for the IBF crown.

His opponent, Ukrainian Welterweight Vyacheslav Senchenko, put a certain Ricky Hatton into permanent retirement when he last fought in England.

Brook seemed to be in a state of momentary unsteadiness as he was caught with a right hand that rocked him slightly.

However, the 27-year-old regained focus to respond with impressive counter punching.

Brook used his jab effectively throughout the fight, and in the fourth round was able to follow through with a right hand that connected to the side of Senchenko's jaw, dazing the Ukrainian before a flurry of glancing blows sent him toppling to the canvas. 

The 36-year-old showed his fighting pride as he got up, beating the count, however, referee  Shada Murdaugh waved off the fight, convinced that he was not able to continue to absorb any more punishment. 

Kell Brook, with his promoter Eddie Hearn, are looking towards the future to gain Brook a world title with possible opponents being Amir Khan, Adrien Broner and Devon Alexander.
