Kell Brook will make his first appearance of 2012 at the Sheffield Arena on March 17. The unbeaten Welterweight star is back from his successful debut in America and promoter Eddie Hearn was quick to secure Brook to sign for another hometown show against an opponent to be named at a press conference next week.
The 25 year-old blasted Luis Galarza away in five rounds in Atlantic City on December 17 to extend his unbeaten pro record to 26 fights. Brook will fight in the Steel City for the third time in ten months and the WBA Inter Continental champion is looking forward to the biggest show of his career so far.
“America was a great experience and a valuable one for the future, but I’m delighted to be headlining a massive show in Sheffield,” said Brook.
“This is a huge night for me – the biggest show to come to Sheffield in many years and I'm ready to put in a devastating performance against a tough opponent.”
Hearn added: “Kell was a big hit in America – he performed well, charmed the fans and pundits and learnt so much in the process. Now it’s time to kick on in 2012 and when we first sat down the plan was always to aim for a big showcase fight at Sheffield Arena as soon as possible. March 17 is a massive fight for Kell Brook and for British boxing and fans can also expect a top undercard with Matchroom’s talent on display.”http://news.boxrec.com/news/2012/kell-brook-fights-again-sheffield-march-17th-0#.TwMZJTjaVYE.twitter
