Kell Brook will defend his IBF World Welterweight title against number one mandatory challenger ‘Jo Jo’ Dan here at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield on Saturday 28th March 2015.

 

The Sheffield star landed the title in August with a career-high win over Shawn Porter and makes a long-awaited return to action in his hometown, with his first defence of the title being his first fight in the Steel City since he stopped Vyacheslav Senchenko in October 2013.

 

Brook dives straight into the deep-end following his life-threatening injury when he was attacked whilst on holiday in September as he meets the Canadian-based Romanian Dan, who edged out Kevin Bizier in a final eliminator for ‘The Special One’s’ title in December.

 

Brook’s first World title defence is supported by a great undercard as talented Steel City favourite Adam Etches defends his IBF International Middleweight title against Sergey Khomitsky, Gavin McDonnell continues his fairy tale story challenging Ukrainian Oleksander Yegorov for the vacant European Super Bantamweight title. Kal Yafai continues his march towards a World title, GB Podium squad member Charlie Edwards fights for the second time in the paid ranks on the bill. There will be a major announcement early next week regarding a further addition to the stacked card.

 

Tickets on sale Friday 23rd Jan 12 noon from the Arena - more info available here http://www.motorpointarenasheffield.co.uk/whats-on/kell-brook-v-jojo-dan-5451/
