Brook on the attack against Jackiewicz
Unbeaten British Welterweight star Kell Brook will make his debut on American soil on December 17 as part of the undercard of Carl Froch’s Super Six final against Andre Ward at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.
Brook took his unbeaten record to 25 fights two weeks ago with a punch-perfect sixth round stoppage of tough Pole Rafal Jackiewicz in front of a sold-out hometown crowd at the Ponds Forge International Arena in Sheffield.
Now the 25 year-old will take his considerable talent to the East Coast of America to showcase his talents ahead of what promises to be a year of stellar fights for ‘The Special One’ in 2012.
“It’s the best Christmas present I could have,” said Brook. “I’ve been dreaming of fighting on a massive show in America and I plan to put on a great performance. The pressure will be on to dazzle the American fans and that’s exactly what I plan to do.”
“This is a big night in the career of Kell Brook,” said Hearn. “He has taken steps into the World Class level recently and on December 17 it will be another important milestone as we unleash him on the American public. Television executives in the States are delighted that they will get to see Kell in the flesh and he knows he needs to deliver something special to announce himself on the biggest stage.
“This will be the final test for Kell before a major marquee fight in the spring,” added Hearn, who said that the opponent for Brook’s US bow will be named soon.
