Kell Brook stops Sergey Rabchenko in junior middleweight debut

What time is Kell Brook's next fight on? Live stream info for super welterweight Rabchenko match

The tributes have flooded in from all corners of the boxing community as the tragedy of Westgarth's death served as a reminder of the dangers of the sport.

Brook suffered a fractured left eye socket at the home of his beloved Blades, a setback following on from his broken right eye socket picked up against Gennady Golovkin eight months earlier.

McDonnell, No. 6 with the WBC, dominated the second half of the fight and spent most of the time on the front foot behind his longer jab.

After he recovered from eye surgery he took a year off and he chose to drop back down to 147 pounds to defend his IBF title against undefeated American puncher Errol Spence Jr., he started off strong in the fight and was able to handle the power of Spence but during the later rounds he got exhausted and Spence fractured Brook's other eye socket causing him to quit in the eleventh round.

Following his successful debut at super-welterweight, Brook suggested he is planning to stay at his new weight.




Going into the fight on the back of a loss is unchartered territory for Brook, but in the build-up all week he has had the air of a man for whom the confidence has returned. I had size, reach, weight and experience. He's a respected champion and I destroyed him in two round easily. I'm ready for it. "I'm back at it".

"I just want to be in the biggest fights that everyone is talking about. I'm looking forward to having plenty in the tank at the weight and I'm excited to see how I perform at Super-Welterweight with the extra weight".

"Kell [Brook] is coming for a second world title and I believe he will be a two-weight world champion in 2018".

"I've never been satisfied winning one world title". "We need to fill that arena, and I need to get to the venue, so I believe the "Beast from the East" has calmed right down now".

I was going to say this would be a genuine 50-50, but the more I think about it, the more I would go for Brook. It's certainly a fight which would grab our attention! "I know I've done everything right, but if anyone had not done anything right at the top level, they would get beat by this guy, because this guy is no joke". "The feeling I get from going out there, hearing "All of the Lights" and doing my thing in front of all of the fans, it's awesome for me, that's my drug and I can't wait to get back in there".
