KELL Brook has been granted his dream date - a high profile match at Sheffield Arena.

After his successful debut in America last month, promoter Eddie Hearn moved quick to make Brook’s dream of fighting at his home city Arena. Undefeated Brook, 25, of Owlerton, has boxed 26 times, but has never performed in the city’s top boxing venue.

“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 years. I’m ready to put in a devastating performance against a tough opponent.”

His rival’s identity will be revealed soon - some fans hope it is New Yorker Paul Malignaggi.
