Kell Brook claims comeback win over Sergey Rabchenko

It was the same result against Errol Spence Jr.in his last fight, a comprehensive defeat.

"I've got the butterflies and nerves just like it's my first time getting in there", said Brook.

"I'm here to stay".

"You thought you got rid of me".

But I don't think that stands him in good stead for going up to super-welterweight against Kell.

"I was in a dark place at Christmas ... my life couldn't be any better now".

"I'm the terminator and I'm back".

Brook is full of respect for Rabchenko after sharing the ring with the Belarusian in past sparring sessions.

There was no ring rust for Brook, 31, though who finished in explosive fashion with devastating right hook to the temple in the second.

Those injuries are a major concerns considering Spence Jr targeted Brook's right eye last May, before breaking the left one.

Ten months on, and with his 32nd birthday just eight weeks away, Brook is looking ahead to that tantalising final payday against Amir Khan later this year, but to get there, he needs to win tonight. We are both promoted by the same man [Eddie Hearn] so why can't we make that fight happen now? I stand at 6ft tall, walk around 171-172lbs lean, make 154lbs very easy and I have no need to move up.

Brook is under pressure to perform, here we break down the fight and explain why the Brit could come unstuck against Rabchenko.

It was only three and a half years ago that Kell Brook's promoter Eddie Hearn was tipping the British boxer for a bumper payday against the unbeaten money-spinning machine Floyd Mayweather Jr. Kell will box again in June.

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

Brook and Rabchenko clash on a huge night of action in the Steel City with the chief support provided by a crunch showdown between world-rated Super-Bantamweights Gamal Yafai and Gavin McDonnell.

In the first half of the fight, there was little between the two, who are trying to emulate the success of their world champion brothers.

"Forget about the weight, it'd be Khan [over a title shot]". Many fighters don't realise their new weaknesses until it's too late, but for some, the wane can materialise right in front of their eyes.

In the last minute of the 10th, Yafai was in trouble and tired as he was caught by McDonnell's accurate attacks.

He said on Thursday: 'I'm not used losing but I've had two in a row. It was what I needed, my career was on line.

"It's big pressure, I know that, I can not lose".

Galahad's career was interrupted by a ban in 2015 for a failed drug test - but he claimed his brother put the banned substance in a protein shake after a row.
