Boyhood Sheffield United supporter Kell Brook admits it was a “dream come true” to parade his IBF world welterweight title at Bramall Lane on Saturday.

And Brook, who enjoyed a rousing reception from his fellow United fans before their 2-1 win over Gillingham, admitted that an all-British tear up with Amir Khan could take place at Bramall Lane next year.

“All I’ve dreamed about for a long, long time is bringing the world title back to Sheffield, and especially to Bramall Lane,” Brook, who beat Shawn Porter on points in California last month to win the world title, said.

“I’ve always wanted to do this, and it’s made my year to be able to.

“I owe all my success to my supporters - I’m very passionate about them and now I want to repay them with some great fights.

“Who knows, I could be back in a year’s time at Bramall Lane to take on Khan. You never know.”

Brook is still recovering from a machete attack on holiday in Tenerife, but has targeted a return to training next month ahead of a first defence of his belt.
