Brook stops Hatton-conqueror Senchenko to earn shot at the IBF welterweight title
By Declan Warrington - dailymail.co.uk
Kell Brook on Saturday night secured the most significant victory of his career when he stopped Vyacheslav Senchenko in four rounds.
Classy performance: Kell Brook once again established himself among the world's best welterweights by defeating Vyacheslav Senchenko
Only once had the Ukrainian lost before entering the ring against Brook in Sheffied's Motorpoint Arena, including last November's victory against a faded Ricky Hatton, but as soon as the third it became apparent he was perhaps out of his depth.
Needless: Brook took some unnecessary punches from Senchenko, despite impressing
Powerful: It quickly became apparent Senchenko was out of his depth
There was a risk to Senchenko's work – he had looked nervy while making his ringwalk – and midway through the third it told when a powerful right hand to the Ukrainian's temple for the first time sent him to the floor.
Going, going... Senchenko is sent on his way after another powerful punch from Brook
Gone: This time, Senchenko wouldn't recover to fight on
Another big right hand sent Senchenko quickly crashing to the canvas and in a way that suggested the fight was over there and then.
Straightforward: The decision to wave the fight off was an easy one for the referee to take
Routine: Brook has struggled more in other fights than he did on Saturday
Time to celebrate: Brook and girlfriend Lindsay enjoy the moments after his victory
'I believe I've made a statement here,' Brook said afterwards. 'When I hurt him I knew I could take my time. I nearly got lackadaisical and I got caught myself, but I thought "I'm going to get you back for that".
