  • Boxing warning: the shot that Sergey Rabchenko could catch Sheffield's Kell Brook with at Sheffield Arena

Who is Brook fighting next?

Spence Jr was crowned IBF champion in front of 27,000 British fans at Bramall Lane in what will go down as one of the most painful moments of Brook's career.

More likely, then, is focusing on winning another world title.

The first round was all Brook landing and boxing beautifully, after that he finished off his opponent in the second round rocking him and dropping him with a flurry of punches, the ref called the fight off as a hurt Rabchenko tried to get up to beat the ten count.

Yafai (14-1, 7 KOs), whose elder sibling Kal is WBA world super flyweight champion, is five years younger, but it was McDonnell who was fresher from the 10th round.

Ankara says the operation is aimed at battling terrorists in the region, including the YPG. The YPG has been an important ally for the United States in the fight against ISIS.

Division dominance could be on offer if Brook impresses enough on Saturday at his new weight to land a date with the victor of the April unification fight for the WBA and IBO belts between Americans Erislandy Lara and Jarrett Hurd. "I think everybody wants to see that fight".

"I just felt a lot healthier and when you're getting older (trying to lose weight) takes it out of your legs and body, it's like taking weight off a stone, there's nothing to take off me". We are both promoted by the same man [Eddie Hearn] so why can't we make that fight happen now? I'm the terminator and I'll be back.

The fate of Sheffield's Westgarth - who died on Sunday just hours after falling ill following a fight that he won at the Doncaster Dome last Saturday evening - will not be far from the thoughts of Brook, his corner and numerous fans inside the FlyDSA Arena tonight.

"We need to sit down, talk about weight and make the fight".

He said on Thursday: 'I'm not used losing but I've had two in a row. I don't know how the bookmakers made him favorite.

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

The cut was so bad the fight was stopped and Commonwealth champion Thomas retained his title via a technical draw.

After he was pulled out by his corner in the fifth round when he suffered a fractured eye socket, all thoughts turned towards his next fight, back at his natural weight class and at the stadium of his beloved Sheffield United.

Since returning from the ban, which saw him out of the ring for 19 months, Galahad has stopped six consecutive opponents and looks worthy of a title shot soon.
